My 1st Jeep.

2000 Cherokee.

I use to have a built 1988 4Runner but a couple weeks ago a PT Cruiser hit me square in the back tire. Moved the whole axle over 3". I bought this 00 Cherokee and so far I really like it. Its got some electrical issues but doesnt seem to be anything major. Plans are small lift and a little bigger tires. Really interested in putting a better sound system in it, 2 of the speakers are blown.





Picture of the 4Runner...

The 4Runner looks like you know what's up about things.
Shore is a pretty xj you got there!

if the front 2 speakers arent working, there probably not blown, its the crap factory wiring. If you want a small lift i recomend the IRO 2.5 BB. 170 shipped for me.

How did you like the IFS on the yota wheelin'? I've heard mixed reviews about them.

I used to have an '84 pick-up with the solid front axle but sold it when I bought my Jeep.

Nice looking jeep you got there.

I dont really want to lift this jeep as much as the toyota was. I need a good DD.

The IFS was fine for me, I dont need a lot of flex. The only thing I hated was the CV boots are easy to rip.

Nice work on that yota sorry to hear of its demise but youve got two new units with lots of potential looks like you found some really good condition stuff the xjs paint has me kinda jealous hell the clear coat on mine probably left in the late 90s and the factory red sometime around 05 or so lol
