If you can find a cherokee with a fullsize spare in the junkyard, the bolt that holds it will fit into the stock location on other cherokees and allow up to a 31inch tire (or so I've read) to be stored in the stock donut location. Just need to remove the black lower support from the floor there. Maybe a $2 mod.


Also with a knife and some time... Bam! Cup holder!

Bed lined floor, for $70 not to bad. its the duplicolor roll on kit from advanced autoparts. it durable to



Next up painted the front and rear diffs. whats needed 2 cans spray on truck bed liner (duplicolor) and cherry red engine spray paint.



My new 4 wheel drive handle. cut off the old rubber handle heated the metal, straightend it. and then cut it off where the metal rod was round. used my tap and die set. spent 40 bucks to buy the handle and its as good as new.



next up Cb antenna mount. mount was 15 bucks just bolted into place drilled a few holes and now the mounts hidden.



and last for now my LED cluster and instrument lights. cost 24 dollars for all the lights.

On my XJ, I removed the little change ditch behind the shifter, and attached a 2 cup holder thing from WalMart. I had a piece of wood longer than the opening left from the change ditch that I eased in, and then wood screwed through the cup holder. No damage to the console, and somewhere to put drinks. Works better on an auto!! Sorry, no pics.

Here's one some may appreciate-

This is a "Gentex" mirror from a 99 Tahoe. Scored the mirror at the junkyard for $10. You can get them with a variety of options such as monochromatic, temp display, dual display, and map lights.

Getting ready to install a surplus electric shotgun rack I retrieved from a wrecked Crown Vic.

I havent done it but the thicker steering links and swaybar from a V8 zj bolt right up

also Grand seats bolt up to 97+ pedastals

and on older xjs and mjs swaping in a 97+ front clip is farliy inexpensive
