94 cherokee build

Hey guys, i am finally making this thread for my 94 cherokee. Originally i had an 89 comanche but it was 2wd, and i didnt have the experience and equiptment neccessary to convert it to 4wd. So i sold it to buy a 4wd cherokee. Well locally i found an already lifted 94 for a great price so i snagged it. It had 132xxx miles, auto, d30/8.25, a/c, RE 4.5" lift, and brand new 33x12.5 mt tires. negatives were the rusty floors, needed regearing, needed sye, and paint was pealing on the roof.

heres how it started.


first thing i did was cut and fold the fenders because i had no room to flex.

i then had some trouble with the police because my tires stuck out so far ( about half the tire was past the fender), so i decided to get the bushwackers.





i also moved my hella 500's to the stock roof bar.


this is them just bolted up, the wiring wasn't done yet.

i ran the wires down the inside of the door jamb.

Wow that is a great looking XJ, nice job. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pick that up for?

also got a new stereo, sony xplod, so i could hook my ipod up through the auxilary jack. At the same time i upgraded my speakers, 6.5" infinitys up front, 5.25" infinitys in the rear sound bar.

now the exhaust... i had cut the muffler and tailpipe off because i was preparing to put on my new exhaust, but i found it sounded really good with just a high flow cat. so for a few weeks i ran just the cat and it sounded great, but it started to bug me how loud it was so i finally got around to installing all my other stuff. so i did 2.5" tubing from the hi flow cat, to a flowmaster super 44, and 2.5" madrel bent tailpipe. and it sounds great, not too loud, but has a deep rumble. sometimes i notice a little bit of dronning, but overall i like it.

i wouldn't bedline the bumpers, if they get dirty once they will never look clean again, id just repaint them if your unhappy with how they look now, the paint will be easier to touch up too.

jeep looks great btw

When we went out to Rousch Creek i couldnt disconnect my sway bar because i would have just chewed my tire up and possibly popped my bushwackers off sooooooo i got home and got right into hacking the fenders higher and wider, along with trimming the inner/under flap of the bushwackers. i also flattened the metal in the inner fender.



you can somewhat see the trimming off the bushwackers in this pic.






so i should be good to go now. i have to do some bumpstops though, and im going to get a screw in eye thingy to hang my sway bar disconnects to keep them out of the way.
