Yea I'm thinking black suede on the outside of the seats (since its already worn out some) and keep the middle the stock leather.

Nothing wrong with being broke dude....theres a lot of us around at the moment! Anyhow some of my best mods and most ingenious repairs have been when I am potless..... and its amazing what you can learn to do when you can't afford to say someone else to do it. Anyway there are much worse things than being broke..... you could have to drive a Civic!

Changed the trans fluid and filter. And didn't have the gasket surface clean enough and it's leaking. And ordered a cat back exhaust with a flowmaster 50 from Rusty's. I don't know what is holding up the stock crap.

I'll sell you the one I bought to install mine. It was pretty darn expensive for a one time use thing. I'd like to recoup some of the loss.

I'm hoping a cheap one from HF will do, they are only around $12

Haha. A few of my friends put them on there gear shifter in the trucks back when we were in high school, that was the only place it would fit in the Cherokee. They came from chilies cuz we usually ate there every Friday night after the game. Just there for kicks lol.

There's a HF step bit that costs around $5. I hate to admit it (not a fan of cheap Chinese tools), but it will work just fine for the application.

Yeah mine was like 40 from lowes. We don't have any harbor freights around here and I needed it that day so I just got it from lowes. I've heard mixed things about the step drill bits from harbor freight though.

Haven't used a step drill yet, so I'll be sure and wear protection. If the $5 one doesn't work, I'll break down a find a nicer one. I know my dad has SO, but he's 3 hours away

Glad she is okay, everything else can be replaced. So there were 3 vehicles involved in the wreck?
