Muddblood's 95 FleXJ

I built it, or...rather BUIDLING it...so now it's time to show it off. I picked up a 4 door 95 Cherokee Country for $1,200, needing motor mounts, and well, upgrades! Here is what I have so far:

Here is what I looked like when bought in April this year, minus the full sized spare and the roof rack, which I got for free:

First upgrade was a 3.5" Tuff Country lift with full leaf springs, coils, LCA's and a few other parts. I know, I know Tuff Country sucks, but I found a deal I just couldn't pass up...the kit was $324 shipped to my door and even included shocks; crappy Tuff Country shocks, but shocks none the less.

Started the front's first as I knew it would be the hard part.

Front coils installed:


LCA's installed:


LCA's again:


Front Shocks:


And it sat like this for a week until I could get the rear done...even drove it as this is my DD:

Lift complete. Same parking spot (approximately), same amount of weight (tools) in back.

Next? Stock YJ aluminum "canyon" wheels and Goodyear Wrangler Authority 31x10.50 tires:




Walmart would install them on the rims, but not put them on the Jeep, so I put them on just before a trail ride.

Since I added 3.5"+, extended brake lines HAD to come. I had NO idea I was sooo stretched in the rear!!

Hoses in the package:


Hoses OUT of the package:


Stock rear hose:


Extended hose:


Stock front hoses:


Extended front hoses:


I went overkill on the hoses and bought some for a 5-6" lift, for 2 reasons really...1) in case I want to go bigger on the lift, it's one less thing to buy, and 2) to make absolutely sure I don't rip it apart when it's flexed.
