Haven't been on here since I sold my last Cherokee. Which has been years. My last Cherokee was a 2 door 96 Cherokee and I just recently bought a 96 4 door Cherokee lifted 3 inches. There has been a lot of engine work done to it but nothing to the cosmetics or anything. I'll post my progress on it and would love for everyone to chime in on ideas I should do. Thanks

Yes you can go with them but just make sure it's the right lug pattern. Mine are for a wrangler so I had to use a adapter

Havent done much since I bought the jeep. My daughter was born so havenít had much time or money. But Iíve done a few things and hope to do a lot more soon.
Changed the front and rear diff fluids and painted the cover
Installed led headlights and trimmed bottom of bumper and flares
Painted the steering components
Installed a led light bar to the factory fog light location
Needed to change my valve cover gasket so decided to paint it while it was off and replace the valves on top
Finish product
Looks good behind the hood vents
Went a lil crazy with the burnt copper paint and started painting everything
Painting slots on grill

Got rid of the line and added filter to it

Got a great deal on a snorkel so I decided to put one on the jeep. Iv heard several good and bad things to them so decided to try it myself


Looks good and so far the jeep seems to be running better. PO had a homemade cai on it so snorkel versus that is night and day. Gas mileage has seem to get better and better throttle reaponse.

Next up is to waterproof the rest of engine and jeep so I can test this snorkel out
Took gauge cluster out to replace lights to led and decided to go paint crazy

Looks good and I like the paint combo you got going on. What did you replace the dash lights with some after market LED's?
