Hi everyone my name is Sam and im from Alaska! Im kinda new to Jeeps. Its my second Cherokee and this thread is just to keep the progress of my jeep. Its a 2001 Cherokee classic bought it from CARR Chevy in Vancouver Wa. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone....:thumbdown:

I got into jeeps after my long addiction to fast Subarus. I wanted to try something new so I went out and found a low mileage black XJ

Spring 2010

What's next?

Subarus with Jeeps are the perfect combo. It's always a hard choice choosing what one I want to drive each day. The subaru usually wins because it's faster and more economical (depending on how I drive it)

Kinda looks like mine, except mine is smaller!

Thanks man. Do you have a build thread?

Nice looking Jeep! I also have the XJ and the Suby (3rd one), but no side by side pics, and it's not an STI:crying: What part of AK are you in?
