Approximate rear axle location, more fender hacking Yeah!






Might build the inner fenders and raise the tank like this





Think I might be able to use the corner gaurds from the scrambler and modify them to fit on the cherokee. More to come on that later......

Cool to see you trying to stay low.

I'm in no mood to deal with that so unfortunately I'll be a little higher than I'd like with my set-up, but good for you! Subscribed.

Picked up the 52" Chevy springs this morning, so out with the old




And in with the new to me, going to remove the overload spring later




The exhaust tailpipe was interfering with the pass side shackle so off it came




I'll address the shackle angle later




Swaping out the 33's




A little cut and fold for just enough clearance




4Ds on all four corners

Great start, i like the thought of the 231-300 doubler, For your arms, my opinion is to use Jhonny joints frame end and poly bushings on the axle end a bit surprised with all the welding you didnt go with a 4 link in the rear..

I like the plan on keeping the 4.0, too many people are quick to swap for the v-8, but i agree a stroker kit is a great mod, lots of low end torque and your keeping the reliability of the good ol 4.0, but plan on changing motor mounts, brown dogs are great, i changed mine out for a set of them

Anyway I like the work, and ill stop n periodically and check up on it. Consider a comp cut in the rear!

oh yeah if you really plan on wheeling that year model hard better cage it and tie cage into suspension or itll rip in half under the rear seat i know ripped 3 of em allready...i go thru bodys like b-ball players go thru shoes...the later models added raised tunnels in floor area and replaced the rear hatch with a metal one the fiberglass ones will explode under hard flex and the glass shatters under moderate stress...but at least you have a 4 door the added b-pillar makes it a little stronger but now much...
