Default 2001 cheap xj project

my name is Connor im 17 and im from maine and figured now that my cherokee is pretty much done being built for a while i would start a build thread. I dont really have many pictures of the building but have the different stages along the way.

so heres what i started with a completely stock 2001 cherokee sport with 146k on it for $1000 dollars that i patched some rust on the rockers on then got inspected the next day.

I wheeled it stock for a week before i caught that jeep thing and lifted it

after searching craigslist for a while i found a set of 31's with some good all terrain tread so threw those on and put a set of chevy lowering shackles on for some more lift and flex in the back
