Hey everyone im mike from New Mexico, New to the site, so all help is appreciated, So I just bought this 1996 XJ. It has a few issues nothing mechanical that I can tell. mostly cosmetic stuff.... There is a rust hole on the front passenger side floor pan, broken rear wiper, missing front wipers, spare tire and radio. AC runs cold and heater runs hot, there are a few dents. So good thing to this was the asking price was 2950, not bad for where I live considering the condition... So he gave me an option 2650 as is or 2850 and he will fix the rust problem, replace the wipers, spare tire, and he will give me the radio that was sitting in the back seat lol. I decided for 200 bucks I would let him do the work and save myself the headache.
So here's what's in future for this beast
I plan on a 3-4" suspension lift (maybe rough country if I can get it)
32" BFG mud-terrain, or the All terrain TKO( still deciding on what tires)
Safari rack mite build myself
off road lights
ohh and I will be getting fender flares, and possibly rock/branch guards for the lights.
I'm sure eventually when I want to put a winch on I will probably build custom bumpers. also possibly exterior spare tire rack to make more room on the inside.
I would really like the smittybuilt G.E.A.R seat covers to but there not made for Cherokees for some reason. I also will be installing a roll up awning that attaches to the safari rack. Im sure im missing something, but Ill figure it out soon.
Oh ya did I mention I plan on doing all the work myself, but I don't know hardly a thing about mechanics.
Most ive ever done is oil changes, and replace an alternator on my 07 galant
I have two pics but im not allowed to post attachments ?
