MOBBiNs 2001 Cherokee build

Hi everyone my name is Sam and im from Alaska! Im kinda new to Jeeps. Its my second Cherokee and this thread is just to keep the progress of my jeep. Its a 2001 Cherokee classic bought it from CARR Chevy in Vancouver Wa. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone....

I got into jeeps after my long addiction to fast Subarus. I wanted to try something new so I went out and found a low mileage black XJ

Spring 2010

My old 98 Cherokee (all stock with 30 inch BFGs):






Winter 2010/2011
Details on my "NEW" Cherokee Classic

The first picture i can find of it, behind my old 05 STI:

Lifting it early 2011

Before the lift with the back fully loaded:



Front:





Rears:



Done!!



Here's the difference between the stock rear shackles and the Rocky Road shackles:



After 2,500 miles of owner ship my jeeps in the shop. The head gasket went out. They sent the head off to the machine shop and found 2 cracks.

I bought a replacement head from Alabamacyclinderhead.com

I'm glad I bought the extended warranty. The only thing I'm paying for is my 50$ deductible and the head.

Heres my trip from Portland Oregon to Anchorage Alaska in summer of 2011





My co-pioets:



1st night camping:



driving pictures:







Right around where this piture was taken ,about 170 miles out of anchorage, my water pump started leaking pretty bad. I limped her in to the jeep dealership today to find out my main rod bearings are shot. That explains my low oil pressure. I ended up getting a new long block with 76,000 miles installed free under the warrenty


wildlife:





Destruction bay:



Expensive gas



Fall 2011

Added RE1660, RE1665 & RE1670:





Finally leveled out:



Because of:



2" spacers

What's next?

Subarus with Jeeps are the perfect combo. It's always a hard choice choosing what one I want to drive each day. The subaru usually wins because it's faster and more economical (depending on how I drive it)
