Mild Chili Pepper Build - 99 XJ

Current



1999 Jeep Cherokee purchased in the fall of 2008. Got it with 104,000 miles on it, had a few issues (missing flares and such) nothing major.
Have been slowly building it along with going to school but here is a list of what I have done since I got it.

Rustys 3" Lift
Rustys Sway Bar Disconnects
31" General Grabber AT2's on Grizzly Jeep Rims
Bedliner Rocker Guard
Jk Rubicon Shocks
JCR Stage 3 Rear Bumper w/ tie-ins
JCR Pre-Runner w/ tie-ins
JCR Steering Box Spacer
Raptor U-Poled Bumpers and redid rockers
WJ Lower Control Arms
Tomken Gas Skid

Other little things were Infinity tweeters, roof rack tire carrier which I have since taken off, hella 500's on bumper.....

Couple weeks after got it and bed lined rockers


Month or so later with the AT2's and 3" Lift


After I got the Stage 3 Rear installed and with Spare Tire Carrier


As it sits now

Got the Aussie installed in the rear no real pictures though hands were a little to messy. Total install only took a couple hours would have been shorter but had to pull it out once to get everythign re alligned. Other than that install went pretty good. Up next is sliders and tube doors......

Finally got around to taking the doors off, I did the grinding off bottom of door hinge method, and using bolts. Came out pretty good I'm know working on tube doors and better wire disconnects.

Ive got a 2000, and want to take off my front doors. you really just cut the bottom of the hinge off. Do you think you could post an image of the front door, open, on the hinge, to show how the hinge looks like now?

Thanks!

Have not updated in a while, I ordered rear qtrs with built in light boxes from JCR and am in the process of getting them ready. Also i will be cutting the lower qtrs and replacing after finding mass amounts of bondo. Next I will be adding side protection to my JCR rear and trimming it. I will post pictures later of the new changes.

The wires have disconnects located in the kick panels its not to hard to disconnect them once you get the hang of it. For the back there are two more disconnects. I just made the reaer disconnect visable so that you wont have to take off the whole panel( looks like wrangler setup). I can try and snap some pictures to better explain the wires, but it looks like it might be a couple more days the jeeps been sitting for two weeks know as ive been attacking the rust and intalling new qtrs.

Progress

Here are some pictures of the hinges i ended up drilling them out then using bolts that dropped in and greasing the crap put of them.




Next i had some rust to repair so i did a whole bunch of cutting and repairing then added in the JCR upper QTR guards with some slight customizations. Also i removed the flares and trimmed a little bit for some future plans.

Those JCR qtr guards looks great. I have been thinking about ordering those for my XJ, great build so far!
