so after i rolled my xj about 4 months ago i decided it might be a good time to upgrade. so i looked into 97+ cherokee classics but they were missing one thing, a good size motor to move that big suv. so i looked into ZJs. so i bought a 94 grand cherokee limited. 5.2, fully loaded. its only missing a sunroof and heated seats. but oh well. 133k and i paid 2100 for it. not too bad id say. it sat for a while so it needs some work, but thats the name of the game.
here are some stock pics
my first set of mods were a budget boost, bilstein HD shocks off craigslist, and 31x10.50x15 BFG all terrains...heres some pics, an alignment got rid of a nasty case of death wobble
here are the most recent pics. i picked up a turbo city intake off of ebay for 80 bux, i flushed the coolant, the motor, changed the oil to amsoil, replaced the thermostat and a few other small pieces and the plugs and it runs soooo much better now. the catalyst is rattling around inside the cat so i ordered a magnaflow 3" cat, muffler and tip, and im going to get a 3" tailpipe and get it all welded up. i was playing around and i got some flexy pics.
my next few mods will be new wheels to replace the stockers and get the rubbing to stop. then swap the 242 i have in the garage into her. pick up a roof rack. then i am getting a BDS 3" lift with rancho 9000xl shocks and jks discos and lower front control arms.
If you were to have problems it would likely be at idle stuck in traffic or while wheeling in low 1st gear. The tires sure made those wheels look better. The performance mod on a car called a cold air intake is called that for a reason.
