Picked this cherokee up at the end of april for 1000 bucks. Since then I've put about the same into it, maybe a little more 😅 this will mainly be a pictures thread. Hope you enjoy my build 😁

Mounted up some hella floods on the stock front bumper. Aftermarket bumpers/rock sliders will come eventually, but this will work for now




Switch mounting for the hellas/led pods/whatever else i decide to run ��

A little engine bay detailing/cleaning up. This thing was and still kind of is a mess!! Everything with blue tape was an immidiate issue




Yep, closed cooling systems suck. So, im in the process of swapping to an open cooling system! Waiting on the 01 cherokee reservoir/overflow tank, and still havent figured out how to run the rad mounted fan, other than that its about done!

Angry eyes, and some more cutting!! Not a fan of cut and fold, as id rather just cut it and leave it on the ground!!




Little facelift action! New junkyard grille an headlight bezels! Used a rough texture finish paint on them and though it has a hard time drying, it looks like a cheap rhino liner and i dig it!!
