1988 Jeep Cherokee Build

Alright everyone, I'm unbelievably excited at the progress my Cherokee is making. 2 Parts jeeps later heres what I've got in the works.

When I bought it:
-Dana 30/35 with 3.55 gears, no locker
-33x12.50r15 tires
-4.5 inch lift
-Stock bumpers
-284,000 Miles with severe piston slap
Purchase price $750 total investment.

Now for what shes got now (and parts I've yet to install)
-Dana 30 (with super 30 kit) and aussie locker
-Dana 35 with detroit locker
-4.56 Gears
-Teraflex Revolver Shackles
-Replaced engine and transmission with 130,000 miles
-ARB Bullbar (waiting on new mounts, on backorder from australia...)
-Rectangular steel tube bumper with D-Ring mounts, unsure of manufacturer
-Dual diaphragm brake booster
-Replaced bent tie rod with one from 98 V8 Grand Cherokee
-New windshield ordered
-Paint, purchased now just finding the time to do it
-On board air

Feel free to ask any questions! I'm no expert but over the last 7 months I've learned quite alot!

Pictures to come later today
