Default 91 "Big Red" XJ Never Finished

Here is the start to my build. I am finally getting around to starting this thread. I have had the jeep now for almost 2 years. I got stationed at Fort Meade, Md after a year in the Army. My dad who is a truck driver made some room on his flat bed trailer and brought it to me from Spokane Washington. Pretty nice thing to do.So the nice thing about this jeep is that I actually have known the other 2 owners. Hopefully it turns out to be everything I want in a jeep I don't plan on getting rid of it. Here is how it started

Thanks I really like the old Mopar look. Just as a warning don't try to paint your hood outside it will get ruined. I learned that the hard way. :banghead:

Then I got the windows tinted and cleaned up the interior. Installed new carpet after Dupli Color bed lining the tub. I also did the head liner with black vinyl.

Painting my wheels with my best helper. I have had these for 10 years and they have been on 4 of my Cherokees. I used Rustoleum Semi-Gloss black spray cans to paint them. I have found that it is really durable paint.http://www.lowes.com/pd_244425-90-23...roduct_price|0

I picked up a Novak Conversions Cable Shifter Kit. It shifts amazing and it is way better than the stock linkage.

My favorite thing about working on my jeep is that my daughter actually helps me. Future jeeper in the making.

Finally did the cut and fold on my leave. Turned out pretty good.
