2001 XJ "Smokey the Bear" DD build

Hey this is my first official build thread. I've been on the forum since 2011 as mainly an observer of everyone Else's work. I felt it was time to dive in the mud head first with my new Cherokee. I just purchased in July of 2015 this Oregon state fleet rig. Its a 2001 Sienna pearl Cherokee SE model with 131,000 and some change on the clock. This will be my fourth Jeep I've owned. I had a 2000 Cherokee sport with 240,000 miles on it when i sold it in may 2015, I also owned an 89 Cherokee and a 99 Grand Cherokee. Anyways long story short after selling my 2000, I immediately regretted it and had to have another Cherokee. Here she is a couple of days after I brought her home in all her glory. cue angels singing ect. ect....

Looking good. Where did you get that new blue led cluster at?

Fireman Brad 08-30-2015 05:45 PM

Well this is what I have done over the past month. future improvements will be a 3inch lift at tax time probably a Rusty's off road or maybe a rubi 3.5 super ride like my 2000 had what do you guy's think? I know i wont go bigger this will be a DD and my weekend warrior. I'm also going to get 30inch or 31inch tall cooper discover stt tires, an led interior kit, truck light head lights, a roof rack and maybe some knock off ravine wheels or soft 8's I saw on the interwebbs. Stay tuned!
