i dont have pictures of alot of what i have done but i bought this bad boy completely stock with 125xxx. d30 front, chysler 8.25 rear, auto with n231 transfer case, nothing special or fancy.
started with a oldschool 4wheel drive sticker on the back and woody witch got stolen in a week




i hate the licence plates in my state so i started with some custom licence plate stencaling, bought some dtabs from harbor frwight and got some kc daylighters, also some angry eyes
,

got some custom decals made by my freinds dad for cheap



threw a chain on to make a smiley, got 31x10.5 bfg all terains for cheep but still no lift at this point

put a 20mm ammo box in the trunk



rattle can painted the roof with truck bed liner



slowly acwired a lift, used rough counrty lowers and adj track bar, skyjacker shocks and 3 inch lift coils, 2 inch spacers, 5 inch rustys leafs. new rough country sway bar discos, plus not in picture but extended brake lines fron crown in red and skyjacker transfer case drop


put it all in, made an offroad flag, put a masterlock on the chain painted it red, got amber light covers for the kc's at this point i also got gas tank armor and a front skid plate. and trimmed all the fenders


went to the junk yard and took badges off a ramcharger prospector edition and had a freind paint them up for me

cut the front bumber, thats my brothers cherokee 2 inch spacer lift on 32s with custom fender flares that everyones jelous of



was finishing up welding one of the fenders when the interior cought on fire

this lead to me taking out all the carpet and now im in the process of redoing my floor pans


got new rims, crager nomads 15x8s with 3.75 backspacing, put an old jeep badge on the bumber and good shot of the skid plate




got some oldschool dick cepeck 900 8 inch 130w lights, huge, sand blasted and painted them acoridingly, put them by the cowl neer the windsheild, also put a wreath and some xmas lights


a week ago my jeep broke down, i got death wobble and pulled over my track bar was snapped, never trusting rough country again. had a 4 cherokee convoy to save me, another good shot of his jeep with the custom fender flares.


its a work in progress and i will try to keep this someone updated, i have done more then ones up here but this is all i can think of off the top of my head and what i have pictures of on hand
