Finally got the damn thing on all fours again! Its not 100% done. I need help with the alignment. Also I cant get it started right now. Popular opinion is that it is the Neutral Safety Switch, which can easily be damaged when working with it. So sometime this week, it WILL be on the road!




Also got the CB installed inside the cab.


Couple random pics next to my buddy Tim's XJ

Thanks! I have a buddy whole did the YJ's as well. Thought about doing it down the road as well. I like the look of them too. Im going to give my current setup a run through some trails before I decide to change anything for a bit. Really just want to drive it all over the place right now since its been down since this past Easter haha.

i was going to take you up on this...but work got all messed up and now I am off for the rest of the week. so I said screw it and im leaving town til Saturday night of sunday.


Ordered some mounting brackets for my hi-lift. I have some 4xrac ones already but just weren't going to work on where i was planning. So p.s- those are probably going up for sale. Ill get pics and tell you the brand when I get them in

If it works out, I am going to try and start modding the rock sliders to work with the Rough Country Brackets.

ITS ALIVE!!!!!!!

Pat came over and we got it running. It ended up being the Neutral Safety Switch. We by-passed it for now just to get it running. It has been sitting since easter and it fired right up without any issues! Drove it around the block before I had to leave.

That was Thursday.

Today, Sunday I got some small work done because of the rain. I got home late last night so today was the first day of the weekend I had a chance to do anything. I ended up installing some stuff I got from RIVER RAIDERS.

I was trying to figure out how to mount the Hi-Lift. I have had a 4xRac for it for awhile. Wasn't sure how to mount it. I just knew I wanted to keep it inside away from the elements. Well nothing was going to work the way I wanted it to with the 4xRac system. Then I came across the 48" Hi-Lift mounting system by River Raiders (the only product they make for the XJ haha) which keep it inside the cherokee and in a place the keeps it out of my way. I am actually surprised I didn't come across more of these type designs before. It is an easy install and really is in a great place. Fits right over my spare and toolbox.

The parts (also comes with basic instructions)


The bracket for the foot side. It mounts behind the seat hold using the factory screws as well.


Picture of it installed. Look how nice it fits with seat all the way back.


Picture with Hi-Lift on. Perfect height to stay out of my way and clearing the spare and toolbox!


I love it. Great buy and great product!

Got my sliders back on today and gave it a wash. Still want to reinstall my horns! It feels so good to be driving the jeep again. It is so much better then driving my cavalier! So then tonight sometime I need to burn a new cd with two songs to play on repeat: Rock You Like a Hurricane and Team America - America F*ck Yeah!!!!

Since driving it today, I noticed when I take turns there is a clicking noise coming from the rear. Only when I take turns does the noise occur. The only thing I can think of is the new Aussie Locker. Are Aussie known to be noisy?

FINALLY DRIVING SINCE THIS PAST EASTER!!!!!

Here are some fall colors from driving around today:
