My build thread
 
Well, I figured Id jump on the band wagon and make one of these, so, here we go.

I started with this, a stock 1997 Jeep Cherokee SE, 140000 miles, for $3000 dollars. Got it on August 1st 2006, I was still 15. All it had were the Eagle Alloy wheels and some 235/75 15s on it.
(not a good pic)

A week later with painted flares, side molding ripped off, and Duplicolor Bedliner on the side. Front bumper caps taken off.

It snowed, I was a newb, I couldnt drive it anywhere. bad POSER SHOT. Also rear bumper caps off.

The interior, the PO had that stupid shifter boot on there, and it had some idiot lights. All thats done here is the head unit.

Then came fender trimmage and old style front end caps.

i finally put some tow hooks on and had my bumper and end caps off in the process and dont want to reinstall the endcaps, did you trim your inner plastic fender well or did you rip it out?

nice thread. i've never heard of using blazer packs, are they a direct fit? i've read about s10 basturd packs but never a direct replacement with another make/model.

i went with 2'' shackles and Zj coils w\ a 1'' spacer. i kinda want newer[low mile] stock packs, but i sit level and plus i know i'll wanna go bigger soon

No, they're not a direct fit. You just use the leafs out of them under your XJ main leaf.

black2door 11-26-2007 07:47 PM

Huh, not many comments, come on, tell me you hate it or something. Oh well

I detailed it and smoked my turn signals. Pics to come

black2door 11-30-2007 04:35 PM

Got some recent pics of the heep. Bad pics, but it gets dark so freakin fast anymore

Black wheels and tinted tails and turn signals.
