slammed (to the rockers) 88 cherokee :eek:

since the forum has been pretty slow here lately...


I thought everybody would like to see it (even you non-street guys have to chime in here)





















here is all I know about it so far...

2x3 box frame welded back to the body
S10 front clip & rear end
383 stroker
the floor sheet metal was was done in 2 days
18"s

I know it may not be everyones dream jeep but I think overall it is pretty F'n cool. the rims look a little small IMO and the design of the rim it's self is pretty retarded IMO also but other than that I like it (except the fact that it isn't done)

I am trying to get a hold of him via e-mail but it was hard enough just to find this kind of stuff I'll keep everyone posted

The first one is, IIRC, a buddy of Jbhill. He's a serious mni-trucker, and they built that thing to be low and nothing else. His truck is going to be streetable I think...

The first one is just fugly, the 383 is nice, but fugly is fugly...

The MJ is nice, minus the yellow stickers. IŽll take it as a daily driver.

The MJ is nicer than that fugly cherokee...Thank goodness it was burnt down? Jesus dude, as if it's not hard enough to find a Comanche as it is.

I would have taken it any day of the week and actually put some usable work into it.

seems pretty pointless to take a perfecly useful vehicle and make into that... but i guess that's the low rider mentality.

You typed the words out of my fingers.
To me it would be cooler to have a bigger engine but all in all, I like it. Could be a fun project, but a bmw e30 325i is much much more tempting.
