Well I guess I should start a thread, Iv had the Jeep for about a month, and its not first Cherokee. Its like my 6th or 7th Jeep, my 4th Cherokee. When I got it, it had some problems, like bucking and not wanting to pick up. So I figured it was my tranny, and since I had one out of a 1994, I installed that, and since the new tranny was 23 spline I installed a 231 23 spline TC out of a 1991 Cherokee. Turns out after all the work on the tranny was done, my problem was a bad fuel pump. So now it runs great.

I installed 2 KC lights, and 2 Pilot lights on the stock rack rails, bought a set of 30" Pro Comp tires, and Im looking into what lift I want. Here a few pictures of what it looks like right after I brought it back from doing the tranny swap.







More pictures to come when I get the tires mounted.

I had the exact same thing happen to me. I ended up replacing the furl pump before the tranny, and I found out that was the problem.

Your jeep looks sweet man.

The outside is the nicing looking thing about the Jeep. The interior is all dirty and greasy. And the only bad rust that I have is in the truck, with 2 holes. The rest of the body is clean.

Same thing with me. My jeep is spotless when it comes to rust except for two or three holes. There is not a spec of surface rust anywhere but I have two or three areas that are just holes.

Here are some pictures that I took today. My mirrors are on, got 2 of 4 of my new tires/rims on, lights, and my gas can. What you guys think?









I still need one more pilot light, so that makes 5 lights up top. Anyone got one for sale?

Got a lot done to it, parts wise. I replaced the plugs, the some radiator hoses, the exhaust, added a roof rack that I got at the JY for 25 bucks, then I added my Axe and Shovel. So here are some recent pics.

No I got those mirrors off a Early Ford Ranger, I plan on going doorless, so I got mirrors and put them on the fenders. And thanks for all the nice comments, I like my 2dr also.
