Need ideas for my 2000 Cherokee

So heres the deal, i dont really drive this thing. I have a duramax diesel as a daily driver, and quite frankly cant even remember the last time i drove the cherokee.

I can either sell it, and pay off a bill or two, or i can keep it and build it into a mudder or crawler.

What would you do?

Post any ideas, pictures, whatever. If you wanna buy it, $ 2500 takes it

Daily Driver ... on Hummer wheels and 35" BFG AT's


The Heap ... pretty much stock except for the 0630 head i put on there to replace the 0331



It makes no sense to even register the jeep and insure it, as i wouldn't really be saving any money with the added costs of maintaining, registering, insuring, and driving 2 vehicles.


I wonder if i can fit a 6.6L Turbo Diesel in it

If it were me, I would first just figure out how serious I am about wheeling. If you don't plan on wheeling much, I'd cut the XJ free so it can have a good home elsewhere.

someone click free please!!

As far as how serious about wheeling, well i love mudding, and might get into crawling....i feel bad mudding my truck, i guess thats where the cherokee comes into play

I have the tools and the skills to build a badass off-roader

i figure the money for it will trickle in over time...

now i only need to find a place to wheel... theres not much around philadelphia.

No Click... Build it into a crawler and tow it with the bowtie.

I was considering selling this one and picking up an older one to use as a crawler... not a big fan of the cali emissions or airbags here...

i wish i kept my 91 briarwood..
