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
white face guages, '98 mirrors, '98 headliner with built in speakers, '98 overhead console, Removed factory roof rack and fender flares.

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.
