2000 Xj

This is my 2000 Cherokee. It's been a little over a year since I started building it, and this is what I ended up with. Let me know what you think :-)

About this time last year



At Funny Rocks in Naches, WA this summer


The rock pile at Seven mile ORV park


Moon rocks at Naches, WA this summer

Thats an interesting suspension setup on that Exploder, looks like it was designed with Jeep in mind.

Nice XJ!

The explorer has home made Y-links. It's got a HP30 out of an XJ, and it really is set up just like a Jeep. It's using stock Jeep front springs, Jeep steering...lol

I got the X Terrains for $325 with 75% tread on them. They aren't great in the snow but are pretty good everywhere else. I wouldn't buy them new, too pricey when compared to BFGs or Swampers. Thanks for compliments!
