(Un named so far) 98 Cherokee build.
Well i'm starting to compile some parts for my jeep so i figured i should start my build thread. I'm just gonna go ahead and list off everything that i have recieved so far and what i've already done to the jeep. Most of it will be in no order.

This is the first day i got it... or like a week later but all it did was sit in the yard.
Had to take it lightly wheeling :)
After i got it on the road i decided i didn't like the air dam.
I spent a lot of time on this next decision cause i wanted a shift knob like no other. Just cause io have to be original. I finally remembered Petey. so i ripped him a new *** hole and with a few washers and some all-thread and a lock nut and viola!
Then i realised how ****ty the headlights really are. I'm a sucker for sealed beams though. so i had took apart my old caddy's headlight assembly, and with a piece of signpost and some more all-thread i had a new light bar and 2 aux lights. Will put up a pic of this soon and the other things i've done soon!

As for the name, i'm still really undecided. i was thinking Kilroy. open to any suggestions. may be painted in the future so no names based on color.

Roof rack with my shovel toolbox and light bar.

ZJ seats from the junkyard. Wish i had a pic of that jeep it was in really great shape! only 130K miles too.

and just a pic of me flexing to see what i can do stock. almost made me not want a lift! i was pretty impressed with my little XJ haha

WEll the plans were gonna be a surprise but since everyone seems so adamant about it...
I'm getting 33x12.5 duratracs mounted on 15x10 bart racing wheels tomorrow.

Ordered and being shipped:
Claytons offroad 4.5'' long arm,
advance adapters SYE,
4.56 gears
Spartan front locker

once i get all this it'll be going to my friends shop to get lifted and geared and cut the fenders.

later (once i save up some more) i'll be getting a bumper, Bedlined floor, front doors removed in spring, and plenty of other things i will think of...

I just realised who this was hahaha. you already know exaclty what i'm getting... what's a d bad?

so anyways... I got my tires mounted and balanced and delivered to my door the other day. put the XJ up on the jack and mockjed them up. they look pretty big in those fenders!

Got my Advance adapters SYE in the mail today and going to get a used ZJ front driveshaft tomorrow morning. I hear the XJ ones are a bit on the short side for an AX15.

Gonna start cutting my fenders after i get the DS tomorrow if it's not raining. will put up pictures when i'm done. Hopefully they will have enough room to squeeze those 33s under there!

Got the Fenders cut yesterday. too much sag in the rear to drive it with the tires on though. Here are some pics. I think it turned out pretty nice other than the paint chips in the back.
I love the way the wide stance looks on Cherokees

Plenty of space up here

Not so much back here...

From the front
