99 Cherokee XJ Build- Maine

Got it a year ago with 120000 miles on it. Its got the 4.0. Here it is before I did anything. I don't know if the photos will show.


First thing I did was a Rough country 3" full leaf lift.

Then i got 31x10.50 BFG A/T tires

It has a Dynomax super turbo muffler, not to loud and not to quiet.
Here is a shot of it in the woods before the snow came down.


I have a 6x3 piece of square tubing and will be making my front bumper soon.
As of now I'm waiting for my Crager soft 8's (15x8) to show up at my door.
And next after that is bushwacker flares. I am also trying to figure out if I should take out my 3" lift and sell it so I can buy a 4.5" kit with sway bar discos and control arms and all those things that would cost me way more if I did spacers now. What do you guys think? I will get more recent pictures up.

It has also been sitting for most of the winter due to me pulling some sort of cart wheel in a ditch/snow drift. But all the body work has been done.

I put herculiner on the rockers and bottom of doors the other day. Gonna start on my front bumper tomorrow and if it is warm enough I'm going to do the doorless mod with the 3/8 bolts. Sounds like all I need to keep me busy on a sunday. I guess I will break down and clean it for the first time in months and take some new photos. Looks better dirty anyways

It has been a while and not much changed. Fixed a snapped front driveshaft, changed out some wheel bearings that lasted only a couple months, finished the bumper and installed my new lights. My fan shroud is falling apart piece by piece also. Unfortunately I got a nasty speeding ticket and this will be put off for a few months as I will have a suspended license and some fines to pay.
Within a month I plan to build my roof rack and install my hella 500's on it.



Here is a bad photo but I will take some with a actual camera tomorrow.
