My build thread. My attempt on a SAFE build on a budget.
Well I got my new cherokee, which I will start collecting part for this week. Its a '88 with the renix fuel inj. Its got 156 K on her, I got her for 700 bux because the head gasket was shot. Fixed it up, go ther running right, now its time to lift it. I do not have a specific height in mind, or even tire size yet. As this IS a budget build thread, I will be using what available in my price range. This mean sthat I will probably be using alot of use parts, when I can, and buying on craigslist, etc. That being said, SAFETY IS MY NUMBER ONE CONCERN. Before anyone flames me I just want to say I will NOT be blocking this thing, or stacking spacers, or not SYE it or anyhting sketchy like that. It will be a wuiality complete job. I am on a budget right now as I am a student, and currenlty saving up to by my girlfreind and engament ring, so that number one as far as money goes right now. I wanted ot document this build because I see alot of shady build on here and unsafe things and I want to see for myself, and for other poeple If a quality build CAN be had on a budget.
I take pride in my mechanical skills (its my job) and I have a very good understaning of the way all of the systems involved work. Most of what can be fabricated will be. If it is somehting that I don not think my welder can handle, ill cut it/ tack it up and have the finish welds laid at a welding shop for saftey.
alright here we go! going to post pics as soon as it gets a little lighter out, and oging to the junk yard today for some things I need for the jeep (interior mostly) and to see if anyhting Is there that I can use.
