Just got a line on some limited doors that are same color as mine. Now I can make some half doors for the back too and replace my banged up ****.

Well i got my 35's for $300 and I paid $220 for the 5 33" tires I had on here and within an hour had them sold for $260 so I got my 35" tires basically for the cost of mounting them up which was $150. Now if I could just find some adjustable lower control arms..

Got my craigslist shocks on. The fronts are only 10" of travel so I'm better off than I was but I'll be swapping those for some with more travel later. The rears are 13" of travel and my jeep had no problems maxing those out in droop. I decided to throw on the bushwhaker flares until I finish my tube flares/fender armor. I only got the fronts on. Pics later today

Not too fond of these big things but they where cheap and they just stay till I get my flares/armor built. Still need to get backs on. The flares will be up for sale on here in next month or two. So any one interested they are not perfect but I'll let em go cheap. Make me offer. I'd actually rather sell and not put on back ones as you have to cut quite a bit to install them.

I type in jeep, xj jeep, wj jeep, tj jeep, zj jeep, offroad, cherokee, wagoneer, xj, rubicon, also try miss spelling cherokee. Comanche. Cherokee -grand works good when looking for a cherokee and tired of having grand come up. But the real thing that allows me to find the deals is I have all day every day at my job to search craigslist. Deals go within the first 10hrs or less. You just gotta look every day. If there is anything your looking for let me know. I got the time and could help you out.

Also if your looking for a jeep there is a 97 for $600 on craigslist and it looks clean and runs drives.

thats a great price is it still on there, mine starts ruff when cold has a little lifter tick but good power, exhaust has a stronger odar than it should, havent checked codes, my last 99 xj ran fine untill we had it scanned then it had a co2 proublem jeep couldnt fix, said they could maybe fix it for 1200 more
thinking i should try to find for wheeling
drive lines- starter- alternator- e fan-fuses relays, anything more i should seek
cleaner seats
and gota get a spare! how would i do with a smaller spare tire just to get back on the the street from trails? i got 33's maybe a 31 so it can fit easy in the back
need a truss or lca skids, i have a 90amp flux core harbor.f. welder or should i try to find someone with a mig on here or cl

wana get a locking box to protect tools and gear that takes years to collect
had them stolen before, thinking a wood box with good hardware ,a plastic one reinforced, steel but would add weight

Riderjay253. I wouldn't worry about breaking into that. Unless it's bolted down they could just walk off with it. I got a mig welder when your ready if you need help man.

So I installed some LED running/brake lights. Nice and bright. But the other day I noticed my passenger front corner all lights where out. My clutch fan got a hold of my wiring. I pulled harness repaired it put it back tucked and zip tied it real good. Everything worked. Hooked up my putco headlight harness and headlights are much brighter now. But, in st there always a but. Now my brake lights are barely noticeable. Gonna swap in stock style bulbs and see if it fixes problem.

Well I swapped back to register bulbs. Leds need resistors I think. Got a bid in on some adj control arms. So that's up next. My front tires with stock arms and 4"s of lift are way to close to floor/pinch seam

Replaces driver door switch panel from junk yard$15 and got a factory fog light switch for dash. Talked to Doug at Napier about being a test rig for their flat flares. I'll have to put on my fender armor to cover up the bushwacker flare holes so I'm looking forward to getting those bolted up. :-)
