MY new XJ

Sup everybody, number 2 Jeep for me. This time XJ
96 Cherokee Sport. AW4, I6, Unknown Lift, Cooper 33x12.50R15s wrapped around what appears to be Outlaw II rims. And from what I can tell it has the 242 TC and the HP30 in it with the 8.25 out back. 144K on the odo and got this thing for only $2,000. Now I want the 97+ front clip and a console with cup holders, how do I do this? Any other crazy things to watch out for on these XJs would be appreciated. And now on with the pics.

So here is the dead side of it, can you tell what lift I have? 33'' tires 15'' wheels








The only real thing wrong with the outside, dented rear door:


The diff, holy cow this thing is rusty...






What do you guys think?

Nice Jeep! Its kinda hard to tell with the lift, since the bushwackers are on there. My best guess would be a 4.5" Rough Country Add a leaf, since the rear looks to be a bit lower than the front.

That's my guess. Mine was about 5 inches and looked about the same on 33's.

Yea I know, gonna find a lug to put on. First I gotta fix the driver's door. The drivers door was locked, and now will not open from the inside or outside, and the lock button has been pushed to unlock and still nothing. Dangit!

New Mexico Driving Rules...
  • As a general rule, the vehicle most in need of a significant amount of bodywork (for which the driver is most likely uninsured) always has the right of way.
  • Never use directional signals when changing lanes. They only serve to give away your next move, causing most NM drivers to speed up and not let you in. In fact, use of directional signals within most large NM city limits is actual illegal.
  • NM law states that at least 50% of all paved surfaces within the state must be under construction at any one time. In all construction zones, at least half of the available lanes must be closed, regardless of whether any actual construction is be accomplished or not. Construction signs shall be regularly repositioned in order to warn drivers about upcoming lane closures immediately after they pass the last exit before traffic backups.
  • Driving through constructions zones with upcoming lane closures is a popular game in NM. It’s called the "speed up and pass as many cars as you can, then see how close to the lane closure you can squeeze back into traffic before hitting any of the orange construction barrels" game.
