Project Grocery getter.

Heres my second jeep build. Its gonna be rather mild. Just gonna run a 3-5" lift, Ill either make my own or buy a used one for cheap. Gear my axles to 4.56s, and maybe swap out the rear axle to a ford 9 or 8.8. 33 or 35" tires, and a roll cage. Lincoln locked or automatic lockers and skids. Nothing fancy. Im also building a chevy TBI350/turbo 350/gm 203-205 doubler/ 14 bolt/ dana 60 front on 40s crawler as well as a long term build, but thats taking too long and I need a rig thats gonna be more family friendly so I bought this.


Starting specs.
1987 jeep cherokee 4.0L straight 6, 21spline aw4, np231, dana 30 front, dana 35 rear, power everything, everything works, it has a small fuel leak, 122k miles. $1000. Im only putting another $1500 into it. I should be pretty close to were I want it.

Also if I have taken anyones project build name please let me know so I can change it.

Its pretty clean for an almost 30 year old vehicle.

Got some things figured out and some things i don't need. Found a set of cj-5 narrow track axles for $200. D30 front D44 rear with 4.29 ratio. I bought these before I figured out I have a D44 rear under the xj. They wont fit nore can I use them because the front is a pass drop, however what it did do for me is gave me a 3.92 and up carrier for the rear d44. So I figure Ill just use the carrier out of the D44 and the LP D30 with 4.88s I have already and swap those into the xj.
