Default The 1997 jeep cherokee fom !TEXAS!

So i bought this 1997 jeep cherokee about 3 months ago for $1000,00 cash and all i have done so far is changed the oil.

Now here is the good stuff!! So i ordered a rough country 3 inch lift kit, Then i went to best buy and found a sale on some alpine 5 1/4 speakers marked down from $99.99 to $24.99! Then my boss had a friend who had some (mud tires) for $150 which ended up being 33/12.50/R15 tsl super swampers!






Now tomarrow i should be puting the lift on so we will see if i can stuff these tires on there or if i gota sell them......

Well i took it mudding and it did great, I also raced it down the mud drag and beat a 2008 tahoe,a 1988 cherokee 4x4, and a 80s model chevy.


Bad news! MY back hatch busted, I need breaks, I need tune up, Either my axle or t case is making a little clunking noise....( this happened after i drove 30 miles on the high way doing 70 mph in 4 wheel hi....)
