Going commando build thread

Ok, i decided to finally start a build thread for my Jeep Jeep.

here is what i started out with

Bone stock 1993 Jeep Cherokee, 4.0HO, 4x4, 231 t-case,dana 30, chrys 8.25

when I first got it I put on some old steel rims I had laying around, different rear view mirror, header panel from a older xj, different lights up front, and pulled a dent.

Before:


After some work.


Today it was almost 70* here so I decided to do some work

After taking off the flares i found alot of rust behind the passenger rear so when I get the lift and tires i will have to cut out more than planned and i am also going to weld in new rockers made from some tubing.
I am collecting lift part so I will be adding 4.5'' in a few weeks.

Here are some pics of what i have so far. I will be doing a 4.5 inch lift and running 33's. I am doing a snorkel, maybe tj flares, a roof rack and rock sliders, and a military theme.
