1994 Cherokee
Default Clifford the big red XJ

Alright so I've been here for a while and decided to start my build thread... work in progress of course. My names Will, i stay in West GA and Im 18. My parents bought my Jeep in July of 1994, 2 weeks after I was born and the manufacture date on the Jeep is in June of 94, so it's all pretty close lol. My mom drove it to Atlanta everyday for years, then when we moved across town it sat for about 6 years or so because it had a hole in the radiator and overheated. The thing was gross when i started fixing her up again... Started working on her when i was 14 and began her transformation
Here is about the most stock picture i have (2009) in digital format:

Pretty sure the first thing i did was stickers and a CB haha... this is from an ice storm we had and shows my antenna, window vents, and i had cupholders then

Then came lights and sound system crap

I had to pull the stock shock up like that because it wouldn't push itself up lol... only 18 years old, you can see the static ride height of none that it had...

Did the rear first on tuesday:

Have since added disco's which are disconnected right now lol and a front hitch. I had to lose these sway bar drop brackets
Click the image to open in full size.
when i added my front hitch because the mounting system was for a stock sway bar set up... I'll grab some pics of that set up tomorrow hopefully

Homemade brakeline extensions:
Click the image to open in full size.

Update without pics for now... Took front hitch off, trimmed the front fender flush with the headlight, and put in a 195 thermostat today... Also update for the lift progress, i wento to the JY in town and they had just gotten a TJ with wheel adapters from 4.5 to 5 on 5 bolt pattern... bought them for $25 sold them for $200 shipped to Canada. Flipped that cash into Control Arm Drop brackets (CAD's) and then sold something else and got RE 5.5 coils. So im almost $40 into both of those parts!! Going to be running RE 3.5 leaf packs with an Autozone shackle kit. RE shocks and probably an RE adj track bar

Till this happens...

Next plan, trade me 5.5 RE coils with Travis for his 3.5's and spacers and use the spacer, paired with RC shackles, some sort of BPE's or shock cheaters and adj track bar... Not gonna go over 4.5 so I don't have to change my control arms. Trying to sell my drop brackets now. Need a YJ rear brake line and do the fronts too

Thats why grinders scare the **** out of me. I'm not afraid to use one, but after a close call with the top of my fingers i've got quite a respect for what they can do to you.. Even more so after seeing this.
