One would be more than enough to do from the trim down.

This.
Did my pickup bed in Herc last spring and it's already faded as hell. It's not very durable either, it's already scratched to **** and I don't use the bed all that often.

Awesome. I just got a '99 Cherokee Sport yesterday for $1300 it's pretty beat up but it's all cosmetic. I paid the guy and got the keys and title but couldn't bring it home because I didn't have anyone to go with me so I'm picking it up later today around noon. Can't wait. I have had three XJ's and one YJ but I havn't had any Jeeps for well over a year, I can't wait to get her. Congrats, your XJ looks great.

1999 Cherokee Sport, 4 door, 4.0L, 5 speed manual, NP231, stock 235's for now.

Not many updates in the last year. Been real busy with work. I made her doorless all summer & gabbed up some small tube doors.
I recently build a front bumper, which I just sold because it didn't come out how I had planned. New rear and front bumpers are being built this week & will hopefully be finished some time next week.

Cut a new front bumper today on the torch mate CNC table. Tacked it up, then pulled it off the jeep & ran 7018 all the way out on her. Just put a coat of herculiner on before coming inside for the night... Here are some photos. All tacked in place before un bolting and throwing it up on the table to weld out Name:  image-143066259.jpg
