I like it . I have a very similar setup (been wheeling it/DDing it for about 4 years now.) It works great

Very nice! I have basically the same suspension components, except I have a OME Light Duty Leafs (OME D22XL AAL on the way). Any future plans you got?

idk how the roads are out there in the winter, but here in michigan with the salt and such... rust comes fast, real fast. on a cherokee that clean i would get it undercoated and keep it from rusting because once it starts, it wont take long for the whole underside to be gone.
depending on how much work you are willing to do and money to spend, think about pulling the carpet, and bedline the floors and then lay the carpet back down (if you choose). thats the other thing about cherokees is once the floorpans start rusting.... you can say goodbye to them in a flash

Those light duty leafs should be fine, I just got the medium duty ones because sometimes I haul some heavy stuff in the back and I don't know what other things I will be adding to it in the future! Not to much other plans for the future for the moment...

Yeah I hear what you are saying, I live in MA so the roads are not as bad as yours in the winter but it does look like it has the factory undercoating underneath, I do want to paint the rest of the underbody component before winter though!

Not yet, but then again this Cherokee wont see to much extreme off-roading anyways...

Yeah I saw your build before, I wanted the whole OME kit so I know it will ride nice with all the same brand things! Thanks though, yours looks pretty clean too!

not something you would regret doing either, you could probably get away with the roll on herculiner and just go to town on the rockers, framerails, and the bottom of the floor pans

I too wanted the entire OME package, and may upgrade in the future.

Thank you again, I really like yours as well.
