Made some progress on the bed today. It has been blasted on all sides and repaired the dents. Finally heard from transport driver, the Cherokee has finally made it to Florida and should arrive at the shop Thursday. In the meantime here are some pics

I looked for a month but they were either power windows with no 4X4 or 4x4 with no power. I wanted both and found 1 on eBay for cheap. Surprisingly it was only $475 to ship, so all in all I bought a 2000 Cherokee(has some damage to rear and missing center console) shipped for under $1300.

I dropped off the Cherokee today and we were able to get a quick game plan together more on that a little later. All of the leather interior arrived today passenger seat needs a little repair job

Made a little progress on the bed, repaired some more little dents and my father was prepping to prime it tonight. Pics of that tomorrow. Tomorrow starts the removal of the cherokees interior and cutting will begin on Monday. So stayed tune should start moving rather quickly and I'll post pics daily

Time for some updates. The interior in the Cherokee is out except for the dash. We have the trucks side by side now so we can measure 3 times and cut once. The bed is fully primed and going out to LineX in the morning to get the underside fully coated.

When my Jeep stops making strange noises, I become concerned. That usually means I have to go back and find whatever fell off.
