1998 Jeep Cherokee

I figured I would wait until I got my lift to start this build thread, and I finally got it in the mail today!

I'm breaking it down this weekend, and Ive got a replacement vehicle until Wednesday, so I think I should be good. Ill get some pics up in a little bit.

So I've got a 1998 Cherokee, 5-speed, with close to 200k miles, it had 1 owner before me and he kept it in great condition, I am still getting above 18mpg city.

Hope you guys like!

Started breaking down the jeep yesterday. I got a stuck lug nut, which I broke 2 socket wrenches on and a breaker bar wouldnt work... So I moved onto the front. Ill have some pictures up today. I'm hoping to have the front done by the end of today. I also noticed that my tracbar bushing is pretty bad, does anyone know if you can pick these up at a regular autostore?

Reminds me of mine when it was still stock. Looks like a good platform to start with

I have gotten the front of the jeep all installed, and I just ordered some quick disconnects. Pictures up soon.

Everything is going great now, just about finished with the rear lift, prolly a few hours left. I'm lookin for some advice too, I found some DAMN cheap 33's and I'm wondering if anyone has any experience running these with a 3" lift.
