My White 2000 Cherokee Build

So I've been a member of the forum for a while now and decided to make a build thread. I got a 2000 XJ a couple of years ago and wasn't sure on what I wanted to do with it so I joined the forum to get some ideas.

Made some changes to it: 3 inch RC lift with AAL. front hitch, mounted Delta lights in the bumper, roof basket with 2 Hella 550s and 2 Hella 450s, Viper remote stater, and added some paint to the interior.

Future plans: new radiator, trans cooler, 4.5 RC XFlex with SYE,

Stock height




lifted 3 inches






lights


interior

Excellent choice. You'll be amazed with how well it does on new tires.

sorry for the delay. I've been busy with the new lift.

I got the idea to do the paint from someone on here, can't remember who though.





this is where I decided to put the switches for my lights.

Got my 4.5 RC lift all finished up except for the sye. I'm running a tc drop and only getting some vibes. Installing everything went really well. Only had to cut out 2 bolts on the upper control arm on the pass. side.

When I was working on the front I noticed my rotors are bad, they have only been on for about 35-40K miles. Is that normal? I thought they would last longer than that, I could be wrong though.
