Default 1998 Jeep Cherokee Custom Rebuild.

Whats going on everybody. I wanted to start a new thread (a) because I'm new and (b) because I am about t venture into a huge project with a starting point of knowledge.

I am the proud owner of a 1998 Jeep Cherokee Classic with a 4.0L Inline 6, very very very stock Jeep.

My goal for this Jeep is a complete overhaul.

There is a lot of things I have not decided on yet as far as what brand's, size or styles. There are also a couple of things that I am have a ball park figure of what I want.

I will keep everybody following this thread posted on what is decided from advice that I am given here as well as other research as well as how much the build is going to cost as I buy the parts.

Most of the build will be done off the body at first and just be ready for bolt on as I get get closer to completion as I am using this jeep as a daily driver for now.

One of the major upgrades that I want to do is swap the 4.0L engine with a Cummins B3.9L/4BT.

I do plan to use all new parts or re-manned if needed and all parts on the vehicle will be assembled by hand.

This will be a lenthy project and I just hope that everyone here is willing to help with the wealth of knowledge they have.

Any questions or ideas please reply here or PM me

Thanks, I am still trying to figure out if I want to build the motor or buy a drop in.

Any Advice?

Drop in. The parts store motors are warrantied and usually cheaper than having a motor rebuilt. I would caution strongly against paying a shop for a rebuild because they typically don't warranty their work.
