Default 2000 XJ Build - Big Bear Edition

Pick up a super clean 2000 Cherokee Classic for $1500.00.

4.0 I-6, AW4 AT , NP231J, Dana 30 front, 8.25 Rear.

When we got it .

2000 XJ Build - Big Bear Edition-2012-09-11_14-29-12_121.jpg

Put a RE 4.5 Superflex kit on it with Bilsteins 5100's, 31x10.5 Tires, 15x8 Steel wheels, Iron Rock Offroad Hack n Tap kit and used a front DS.

Also decided to build some rock sliders. What I used.
3" x 2" x 3/16" main rail
1.5" x 1.5" x 1/8" to connect to the frame
1" x 1" x 1/8" to connect to the pinch seam

Also threw on a Kargomaster roof basket I picked up on craigslist, painted blue at the request of the wife.


How it sits now and Pictures of the Rock sliders I built, painted with spray on bedliner

Still a work in progress...
