Looking good man, so this is number 9? Have they all had the same lift? All these cherokee build pictures is motivating me to blow the dust off mine and resurect it. Im also toying with the idea of getting another cherokee and transfering over my goodies

Trailjunkie
01-10-2015, 03:23 PM
yep i found out what works for me and what i could afford and when the body's had it i find another for 200 to 500 and swap it all over. this time i decided to go 4 door again .

Trailjunkie

nope the tires will wear badly on the road and i dont wanna blow a grand on tires so ball joints it is.

Toyota.

talk to your doctor cause i think there's a cream for that Chris.

Why is it you have had nine jeeps but JJ cant even have fun that at least moves on it's own power?

because in the past ive been know to beat the shit outta an xj taking it where it aint supposed to be and wheeling every sat for 12 hrs straight for 20 years means they don't last.lol build , destroy , replace.

now jj's Amish tendencies are that he gets sidetracked easily by the promise of other work and churning butter. tis no jeep English but tis a fine barn brother jj. lol
