M.A.P.S. XJ Build.

I have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Limited I am starting off with. I purchased it at 120,000 Miles I have just ticked over 175,000 Miles in two years.

I have a 4" Short Arm Lift, Crappy lift Blocks In back (PO).

32"X11.50W Yokohama Geolanders.

Iron Rock Offroad Double sheer track bar kit with bracket.

JKS Quicker Disconnects.

3.55 Gears With Automatic trans.

8.25 Rear end No ABS.

IF they arrive some Brown Dog motor mounts to replace my shredded stock units.

Right now I have a lot of crazy noises and vibrations. Which just means issues to address, Money etc...

With the miles adding on by the week I am going to start addressing all of the problems I have been having. From massive rust holes in the floors and annoying driveline vibes and ever so stiff cheapo shocks.

Lame. I am new to this. I uploaded it to the bucket and posted the URL.

The Geolanders are a great compromise. Extremely good in dry and road, Lacks Directional stability in sloppy mud due to the lack of side lugs in my oppinion. I can not lock these tires up on the street. I have found them extremely tough too.

I hammer the hell out of my truck. It breaks I fix it with bigger and better stuff.

Yeah I love the tire bit it is terrible in any sort of mud. I slide all over the place just getting to trails after it rains sometimes. It's very tough though, the desert hasn't claimed one yet for me

I completely agree. Mud is not their forte but I have been in some wild places with the Geolanders. Pretty quiet and long lasting too. On Open Diffs.

I want to take my truck out west. Never been to the desert.

I wish my motor mounts would show up so I could drive without feeling like i'm in a washing machine.

I have plans to
1. Fix the Floors
2. Powdercoat my bumpers and such in my shop
3. Motor Mounts
4. Fix the Rear suspension. Seriously rides like a lumber wagon. I know its not a caddilac but I know I can get a better ride than 30 dollar shocks and humongous lift blocks.
5. Cowl Intake
6. Skids

Plus anything that breaks on the way.
