March is Mallcrawin’ month in the COTM contest and these jeeps are the kind that turn my head every time so I think you’ll enjoy.
This month we have 7 great XJ’s to check out and it's up to you to help decide who will be this year’s March Mallcrawlin’ Cherokee Of The Month. Take the time to check 'em out and when you find your favorite, show your support and approval by casting your vote.

Also please click the button just under the poll to help keep this thread up all week in the top five voted/crawled threads on the JF homepage.
Feel free to post up with positive comments or discussion and bump this thread as needed. This poll will close one week from today.

Here are your March 2013 COTM entries in the order received. Let’s get this started and see where it goes!

Other Notable Modifications: Autopal H4 headlights, hoodmounted aux lights, 31" Spare in stock Location, Pioneer head unit & speakers

Best Trail Damage: none

Build Thread: VegasGT's "TastefullyCheap" Build - '99 XJ

Optional: The rear shocks I’m running are actually mid-90's Explorer OE replacements. Went in with slight modding and around 5" longer than factory and inexpensive. Also removed door molding for a cleaner look.

Suspension: 4" Mix and Match (RC, BDS, Custom Leafs)

Wheels/Tires: Hankook MT RT03 @ 31x10.5x15 on Allied Wheel Soft 8

Other Notable Modifications: Detours USA Tailbone, 63MM Bored TB, 4 port Bosch injectors, Magnaflo Exhaust, OEM Mopar Brush Guard (from a 1992 LTD), custom relay/switch box, custom home made LED rock lights, Ruff Stuff diff guards FR and Rear, roof basket with lights front and rear, 400 watt Pioneer Premier/Infinity/Alpine sound system, WJ seats

Favorite Modification: tie between Tailbone and relay/switch box

Least Favorite Modification: rear leafs (they lost 1.5" lift already)

Best Trail Damage: nothing major yet...small dents and scratches a bit of Pin Stripe

Build Thread: Recently Purchased 2000 Cherokee Classic (Project?)

Optional: I bought this Jeep from my mother in law. She got rid of her old 4 Runner (Trusty Rusty) and saw this at her work with a for sale sign on it. She bought it next day from the original owner. The day I saw it, about a week later I said "I call dibs on this one when you sell it". She drove it for about a year, and popped the rad on the highway. While it was in for repairs she fell in love with a Mercedes Benz SUV, bought it and sold me the XJ the following week.

Sadly she passed away from a heart attack only a few short months later... so this Jeep is kind of a Heirloom Jeep I guess? My wife will not let me sell it (not that I want to) even though she says she hates it. Really I think she likes it, but can’t admit it?

Most recent - Fresh wash



Kids LOVE Jeeps - My son and the XJ



Camping Mode - Packed up ready for home

I voted for the hybrid mall/trail crawler. I know only the mall counts this month but you can't trick me.

Voted, crawled and bump!

Hey man, it mounts to the face of the bumper with some pretty hefty brackets and a bunch of stainless hardware. Will PM you some install pics. It is OEM Mopar accessory from 1992.

Oh yeah, nice looking clean rigs in here this month!
