I'm real lazy and have very little time so I'm going to keep this short haha. I've also done a bunch of jeep build threads in the last and I just dont care that much anymore, I just want to be able to look back at the progress of this build.
Anyyyway, this build is my first XJ but maybe my 10th jeep. I dunno, I've lost track. It's a rust free 94 Cherokee sport with a 2.5l 5 speed combo. I bought it out of AZ so having a rust free jeep in Michigan is very nice.
Here's the build plan.
*keep the 2.5/ax5
*79 Ford Bronco axles, (cast wedge HP44, 31 spline 9" rear) 5.38 gears and some sort of locker in the rear.
*Modify the Ford radius arms with heims at the frame end.
*Full heim steering with DOM links
*3" OME coils and leaf packs
*Bilstein 5100 shocks, rears through the floor with hoops
*Stiffen up the frame
And im sure a lot more
Heres the day I bought it. No lift and 31s
