My 2000 xj

Here's my 2000 jeep cherokee sport 4 door, 5 speed tranny. Put a wonderful 4.5 inch ROUGH COUNTRY X-SERIES SUSPENSION Lift on it. Great lift, fast shipping bolted right on and amazing customer service. Nothing bad to say about it. The tires are Kenda Klever 32.5x11, fits well in the wheel well. 22" light bar on front and 2 5" pods on top

My next project was to help protect and repair some rust damage on the floors and bottom of the jeep. so i bought a bunch Rustoleum rust reformer and truck bed liner. First i ripped everything out of the interior and lined the interior with the bed liner. as you can see the passenger side was rusting out a bit so i sanded it down to steel before applying the liner.

the next project i embarked on was organizing the rear storage compartment. first i went to home depot and bought some 3/4' MDF board and a few 2x4s. Cut them and nailed them together. It is approx 8"tall and the width of the distance between the wheel wells to the back lip of the trunk area. I then bought a 6'x10' carpet kit from pep boys, used 3m 77 spray adhesive to attatch it and built a door for it with remaining materials. I re purposed the stock tie downs as you can see on the front of the door to store bungies or whatever else i need and attatched to mounting points on the side to secure my spare fluids. (Oil, Power steering, Brake fluid)

i like the fender flares, but they trap mud and water against the paint and cause rusting.
