I'm a big fan of the color of your car as well. I just bought my very first car ever, and it's a 95 Cherokee Sport, bright red, but I'm kinda wishing I found one in your color!

8/18/09 Purchased my own '96 Cherokee Sport.
also drive: '98 & '01 Grand Cherokees

Dang dude, we really match jeeps now! Looks sick by the way. Not to try and copy you, but next on my list is a tire swing. Oh and do you play drums? Cause I spied a kit in the garage in one of you're pics. That would be weird, because I play drums...and we would have a lot in common.

Thanks! The color is great. You can only get it in 2000 or 2001.

jdhughes- Haha, yea, I loved the rims on yours so I went for it.

Please! Get a tire carrier. I used to get headaches from the smell of the tire in the back on hot days.

And yes, I've played drums for 7 years.

My gig set up


Huge set up.

Haha yeah the tire sure gets cooking back there when it's hot. And I'm thinking about getting the Tailbone by Detoures when I have enough cash. Anyways, since you threw up you kit (which is very nice by the way)...

Nice man. I finally set mine up today in my new house, and holy **** it's good to play after 2 weeks.

I like the tail bone, but I hate not having the spare in the center. I really dislike any horizontal weight bias. And, the factory bumper is garbage, so the c4x4 was my best choice.

Can we get some updated overall pictures similiar to these both in cleaness/quality?

It looks real nice, no doubt. I just want to see the overall to keep for my ideas. IF(and a big IF) I ever own a XJ, it'd be identical to this. Clean, kept the Jeep look to it, and good DD as well as Weekend Warrior.

My Dream Jeep is a Nice Driving DD that is completely capable offroad and fully independent.

Meaning, 33's(not to small on the trail, not too big to suck the gas), dual batteries(use them jumper cables to start yourself), spare tire, on board welder, spare shafts, extra parts/the know how to Trail Fix it.

I never intend on having a Trailer Queen or Trail Rig. I'd feel bad if I neglected my Jeep of it's Daily Mall Crawling or it's Weekend Warrior(ing).

But having two Jeeps like I described would be ideal for me.

Thanks in advance.

I recently went wheelin down at fernbridge (south of eureka CA). Met up with REXJ fron naxja.

It was very bumpy, sands, and dusty. But fun nonetheless.

So I think the next stage is a HP dana 30 swap (which I have), some dynamat, and maybe frame stiffeners.
