Default '91 Jeep Cherokee Beginner

Hey, guys! I'm new to this forum and Jeeps. I'm sixteen, and I just recently bought my first Jeep. ('91 Cherokee XJ two-door) So far I'm loving it. But I'm a Jeep Beginner. I've always loved them(the look, the versatility, the offroading, etc.), but i've never taken any time to read on them so i pretty much don't know anything. But what I wanted to ask was: 1) Where do I begin in learning about Jeeps? and 2) I'm getting a paint job for my Jeep soon, and I'd like to know what color you guys would think. I have an option for steel or black rims, and I honestly don't have a color preference. I want something kind of "noticeable", but not too drastic. Thanks guys. I'm looking forward to learning more from you all.

Welcome to the forum! But:



A good way to learn about the Jeep is to start with some suspension modifications and try some hands-on installation; it's a good way to get under your Jeep and really take it apart and learn what's under there. You can normally find how-to guides from the companies that supply the lift and it's a good way to start learning the mechanics. Once you do that, you'll learn a lot by mouth as you talk with a lot of the guys here.

Personally my favorite two colors for a Jeep Cherokee are gunmetal pearl (like mine), or military green. As for wheels, a set of black Cragars will go really nicely with any Jeep.

Good luck!

It looks like total crap right now, though. It's spraypainted camo.

Well when you do before and after pictures, it will add more emphasis on how awesome the transformation was

Gunmetal pearl looks sweet! As for the modifications; I guess I'll go for it. There's a first time for everything.

<--- probably how I'll look when I begin. What do you want pics of? Under the hood? Sides? Front? Back? All?

Nice ride!
