Project: Soccer Mom

I started off with a 91 YJ that I've been slowly building since I was about 18 after about 7 years it turned into this


Then decided I wanted something with more room, doors and a top

While searching for a Cherokee I came across a Grand Cherokee that was half the price of a Cherokee and way more built

So this is going to be a budget(ish) build

97 Grand Cherokee
5.2 v8
Hp Dana 30 trussed
Ford 8.8 trussed with a mini spool
Custom radius arm front
Custom 4 link rear
37" tires

For only $1,200! But it needed some work














Passenger side arm broke and got a trail fix


So the first thing I did was 3 link the front

The old


The new


New lowers 2" .250 wall DOM


Upper link bracket frame end




Upper link bracket Axle end


The upper link is also 2" .250 wall DOM


clearance is a little tight


Finished


That's where I am now I still have a list of stuff I want/need to do

I see why it was 1200. Looks like you are fixing the bad parts though. Got another closer shot of the upper mount?

Axle end, just looking at the till-kinda thing going on. I might have a packaging issue and might need to do something like that.

This is the only picture I have on my phone. I can get a better picture this weekend if you want one

the reason its leaning forward is because I wanted my lower and upper links to be equal length. The axle end mount was built last and that's just where it ended up
