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...

89 MJ - Stock but for the mods.
94 Dodge CTD and 16' flat deck

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.
