ModStock's X-Bomb Sport
My first cherokee. Had it about a month and I love it . My previous ride was a built 89 YJ 4-cylinder , so this was a big step up in luxury and power.
Yeah it has a really nice towbar but that can be used in emergencies . Since a tow bill would be more exspensive than renting a truck these days.

Engine cleaned up nice . Almost new looking.

Only mod ive done was transfer my light covers from the YJ to the XJ.

Cant wait to lift it.............One day .....Next spring.

Is that a manican or a lady in the window wondering why your driving the wrong way

Modstock 10-26-2012 05:43 PM

WTF. i didnt even notice that. No not driving the wrong way . They are just abandoned buisisness near my house so there is nobody there.
Boy you are technical. :wave:

jakecarder 10-26-2012 06:58 PM

Modstock 10-26-2012 10:27 PM

Oh yeah planning on it.

Clean Jeep man. Your ock rails look as polished as the doors, a rare find round here. Also good call on going for a 99, F the 0331. And don't let the haters get to you about the plastic wheel covers, there fun till there not and when that time comes just sell them to a used car dealer. They seem to be the only people who ever buy them anyways.

But looks like a good find. Any plans for it or rockin da stock for a bit?

I don't suppose the base mount for the tow system looks like this... I put the mini-D's on the mounting bolts and now people think its a custom bump bar.

I came up with this design for the front bumper after seeing a cool J-series
Maybe something made out of 2x4 or 2x6 rectangular steel 3/16th thick.
Should be almost deer proof .
Some changes may be necessary during build.

Maybe you should avoid the pervious owners neighborhood, he might have been a peeping tom.

Picked up a used rack yesterday . Gonna do some mods to it and paint it .

S8NNG8 01-07-2013 11:44 AM

So let's see the rack... before and after. Before...

Modstock 01-07-2013 10:53 PM

I'll get some before pics tomorrow. I just had some keys made for the locks on the cross-bars, so now I can take those off to fab the legs to bolt it to.
The measurements are 62x49 and 8 inches tall .
Im gonna cut it down and put 2 inch length rods inbetween hoops. That should give it and overall height of 3 1/2 inches.

How much does it weigh as it is?
