Default '92 XJ has come a long way

So about a year i got my xj from my brother when he was deployed and it was beaten to hell by the owners before my brother, this is how it almost looked like when we bought it but we istalled the passenger side fender and the grill that it didnt have when we got it.

luckily my dad does his own painting so we got a coat of primer on her
(alot of grease marks because we had to fix the starter and she is dirty)

I left to see my mom in connecticut for about a month and to suprise me for my birthday when i got back to NM i find this...
-new black and silver paintjob
-tires and rims off a wrangler
-3" bastard pack lift
-and sitting in the garage a flawless dashboard


here is the old dash not a good picture but you can see the cracks above the steering column

and then the new dash..

and then my dad and i go to the junkyard just to look for anything we find interest in for my XJ ended up pulling out a center console(didnt have one to begin with) and looked under a XJ there and found a 4.5 inch rough country lift kit in amazing condition we left it and came back the next day ad pulled it off with a total cost of $160 and then another 40 for new bushing for the leafs here is a picture after the parts were repainted

and now heres one after the lift and right after a wash

thats where i am at the moment but within this month ill post more pictures in the Fabrication thread of my new front and rear bumpers all homebrew

thanks!the reason i like it so much is because you see all the other cherokees around and they are just one color and 90% of the time its red blue or green so i like having mine way different with the black and silver
