Default 2001 Girafffee Cherokee

I got a 2001 White Jeep Cherokee 4.0L 4x4 to replace my well worn 1992 Ford Ranger.

I've had it for a little while and just recivied my kenwood headunit from crutchfield the other day. Putting it in saturday, figured this was a good time to start my build thread. It'll be a slow thread, without a lot of updates, but none the less a place to store the Jeeps progress.

Will post pictures as soon as possible!

Here are my plans:

-3" Rusty's Offroad or Rough Country Lift
-285/70R16 Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ
-Mamba MR-1 Machined Face-Gunmetal wheel
-Match front window tint to rear
-Install the kenwood Excleon 764 Stero
-Infinity Kappa series replacment's with a Infinity Kappa 5 or 6 channel Amp and a Kappa series 12 Sub
-Flowmaster 40 Series muffler with mandrel bent pipes
-K&N Liftime airfilter
-Custom stock front bumper with three recessed/flush lights in the center
-Spyder MR2 HID/angel eyes conversion

Yeah, love the jeep. Get the DW at about 50-55 while turning left or right getting the wheels balanced and a alignment soon.

I like the tan and black interior, it's a limited so its got leather and power seats.

Holy mother of tire-shine, batman! Other than me thinking those damn HID lights should be illegal, looks like you got some sweet plans :P

Are you going to paint it giraffe texture or was that just a weird name for your build?

Also, nothing wrong with listening to Em, the new album kills and I don't even particularly like rap

No it's not going to be painted a giraffe texture. My nickname from all my friends is girafffee hence the name.

Yeah, from what I have heard his new album is sick.

Hopefully lift should be getting ordered in the next two or three weeks!

I should start calling my 6'5" friend that. I am not short at 6'1" but he makes even me look short. Anyway, nice Jeep. Do you have any pics of the "well-worn" ranger.

I sure do, there not to recent seeing the ranger is about to go under the knife (again). Selling that to fund the Jeeps build.

This is the only one if got of it now, i'll post one either today or tomorrow.

P.S. mine the taller, older one. (I HATE Ford's TTB setup!)
