Can't wait to get it started, I just started at the Jeep brand and bought this as my daily driver. Happy to answer any Jeep product questions as long as they aren't about future product not already announced.

First mod: Hopefully these Rubicon TJ wheels come through, probably going with Cooper MT tires to keep it American.

Yes, I've been a Big Fan, they are a Fancy Name but I feel like they fit the Jeep Cherokee image well. Understated

That's a nice clean Cherokee you got on your hands. It looks pretty good bro. Can't wait to see with those Cooper MTs on there though! It will look stout!

Anything worth salvaging off a 96 ZJ? Other than maybe some spare parts.

Are the axles, knuckles, or brakes worth the swap. It just has blown out bumpers and windows.

Well I got the Rubicon wheels. The guy never emailed me back, but then my brother bought these Patriot wheels and low and behold it was the same guy with Rubicon Moabs. So double purchase on the cheap $33/wheel. At that low I'm thinking I will media blast and powder coat, probably the new gray color of the "Mountain" wheels. Anyways here's the pictures, they have a little rash and some scratches. I could also use one more of each if anyone has any.

Bought another set of wheels, $200 for 4 Rubicon wheels, they are scratched and have a lil rash on a couple but not bad for 17in wheels. So these are JK wheels not TJ Rubicon wheels. I think I want to run the 17s for looks. I'll be posting a WTB for adapters
