Silly Boys, Jeeps are for Girls!

Last week I bought a 1997 Cherokee and I have BIG plans for it!

Other than a rusty front bumper she is in pretty good shape and totally stock! Since I just got her I am trying to take care of all the cheap mods right away. I am still going back and forth whether or not to do 4.5 rubicon express lift with 33" tires or 3" lift and 31" tires. It will be my daily driver but still something I plan on playing on the rocks with! I just don't know!

I just wanted to let you guys know how excited I am to have a JEEP GIRL! So far she has done a few cheap mods and insisted she do them herself. Please show her some love (but not to much). lol

When I bought it there was a piece of molding missing on the passenger door so I decided to remove it all! Getting the molding off was pretty easy but the double sided tape was a pain in the BUTT!

And since the I'm gonna be building this over time I wanted to paint the stock wheels since they were a little rusty!

The trim removal and wheel paint were both huge improvements. Good luck on the build.

Congrats and keep us posted with what you do with it.

I still want one to take hunting/beaching/playing with.

Like the color too.
