Search. Search. And when you are done, search. Please.

The vast majority of this forum is bolt-on/newb/highschool wannabe/not much help to you. And the thread you started isn't going to help you much either, wrong section(this isn't a build...yet), not the best forum, and so broad. Look on Pirate, or tell your mother to take your keyboard away.

Good luck!

I am very relaxed, thanks. I was merely being honest with a hint of humor. Seriously, if what you are looking for is THIS <click. The section I linked is not for newb postings(I admit I am one), but its amazing to stubble through and pick up ideas. Chances are any question you are going to ask about Cherokees/XJs has already been asked/answered. The BEST advice you will get has already been given to you twice in this thread...Search!
