#1
I am no longer the odd ball in the group, I have finally found a jeep that fits my needs and my pocket. :) Well we will see about the pocket lol. I have met a few of the members on here already as I have been too three or four meets now, but look forward to meeting everyone at some point ;) Onto the jeep so I picked up a 94' Cherokee sport with 183,000 miles, here's a few pics ImageUploadedByTapatalk1394852588.886089.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1394852613.617912.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1394852628.898628.jpg


Hope to have it on the trails soon. Plans for upgrades are as follows a small lift to accommodate 31"AT/MT (still undecided),locker in the rear,winch and new front/rear bumpers. That's just the start of this soon to be addiction ;)

Nice! Unfortunately the parts cost a little more than you're used to and you can't work on it on the kitchen table :grin:.

The green xj I had was a '94. It worked well for what it was and what I had in it. What options does that one have? Manual windows, cruise control?

In case you haven't seen it, here's the build on my old one: http://www.offroadsc.com/showthread.php?1069-New-Jeep-owner. From what Brooks has told me you're looking to go the same direction, a good driver, expedition type rig. One thing I warn all new XJ owners of now (because I didn't do it) is to do frame stiffeners FIRST!. One of the first trips we went on was Greg and I went to Durhamtown. I beat on it pretty hard, Greg had to pull me out a couple times, once from a really bad angle, and after that day the doors didn't quite line up right...

Yea I recall a conversation we had before concerning that. I will make sure to order and install those before the first trail ride. Thumbs up!!!

Well I took it out to exit 33 today and I will say the jeep performed very well considering I had street tires on it ;) With the help of jeepman1979(Bill) and a few other friends we installed the Rough Country 3" lift, the MT's won't be in for another week :( But I'll just get those put on after OSCAR. Enough talk here's some pics ImageUploadedByTapatalk1396725541.556966.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1396725565.363242.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1396725585.153186.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1396725605.908708.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1396725646.756508.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1396725670.403365.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1396725682.871321.jpg

Well guess it's about time for an update.
I, with the help of jeepman1979 have installed 33x12.5x15 on steelies from a fellow member sometime ago. We had to cut the sh.... out of the fenders 😝 to clear them. Installed front and rear tow points, also had to install a fuel tank due to my other one leaking as much as it used lol added a Yakima roof rack and led lights on the front. Almost forgot cb radio and bumpstop extensions up front and rear.
Spare tire courtesy of Mr Larry Barr. Thank you very much 😄

Also jeepman1979 has welded up some band aids to cover up some of the really bad rusted out non existent spots😛stiffened her up good. Oh and also have a floor pan now no more carpet hanging below the body.
Still have a lot to do next on the agenda is to change out the Dana 35 to a 8.8, change gears to 4.56 and add a front locker. Then a winch and .......... Well you know lol
