Guess it's time to start my build thread...

Well I'm ordering my Rusty's 3in lift next week so it'll be at my house by the time I get home for winter break. So I figured I'd start my build thread. Here's what I got.

-2001 Cherokee XJ
-145,000 on the clock
-Other than that, bone freaking stock...

Pics












After this lift I want to get some black D-windows or soft 8's with probably 30's...not gonna lie, I kinda like the look of a lift with smaller tires. Some kind of front and rear off road bumper, I'm thinking JCR. Roof rack, with roof mounted lights, not to mention aux lights everywhere, flowmaster 40 series. Don't want to go to extreme, still gotta be a DD, and have a little fun here and there.

Okay so the I'm home for break and I've been wrenching all day. Got most of the front done. Both front springs and shocks are installed, now I just need to get a hold of a pickle fork to get the old trac bar out and install my new steering stabilizer and the front is done. Tomorrow I'm hoping to get the whole thing done, and get my new wheels and an alignment on Monday. Here some updated pics on my progress...
The Goods...

As she sat, bone stock.



Springs and shocks in on the drivers side...

Passenger side...


Thats it for now...I'm hoping to finish it all tomorrow after church and such, and then get my black wheels and an alignment on Monday.
