An 88 Heep named Zips

SO to start this My title said 88 not a 87 like the Bill of sale.
I figured that I should make in the Cherokee section more travel/help.
This is how she started her life with me. Terrible rust and needing a tune up.

me stripping her a little

Junk of what was holding a rear bumper

I was able to pull it off with my hand.


jerk at work

Fixing my Door




I changed my lower control arms to Rusty's that came with the heep :headbang:




bedlinered the sides



Cleaning up my rims

So my current plans are as follows
8.25 or a Ford 9 inch

I just bought a set of used rancho 9000s in great shape!
I pulled the trigger on a set of RE 3.5 Coils





working on the lift



Mocked up



when I got it

I am looking at a 8.8 if I can find 200 by the end of the month
IT has disks welded carrier and its all setup for a XJ

Hiems for steering?
I am thinking a 1.25 with 1.0" ID Ruffstuff heims
TRE for the pitman arm and then all other joints Hiems and OTK
