Default 96 XJ Build

Been a long time since I had my built 91 xj and it has also been awhile since I have posted on here. But the time has come for the better second build.

Bought a 96 Cherokee the other day for 450 bucks. A tree fell on it. The windshield shattered out, the fender and inner fender were bent in, the front cowl piece was busted, all the passenger side lights were busted out, front bumper was bent in, and the hood needs some hammering on.











I tint windows auto, residential, and commercial. So the mix of chrome and purpled out tint is going to be gone as soon as I fix the main things to get it on the road. It looks horrible haha.

Got my buddy at Low Price Auto Glass to install a new windshield first. He's not my buddy anymore after cleaning up all the glass haha.

I also flip Cherokees so I had a 2000 xj for parts at my buddy's shop Cap City USA They also spray bed liners with the best liner material I have ever seen or heard of called Full Metal Jacket spray liners. I also know this because I used to spray bed liners. But anyways I decided to just swap the whole front end over. So I cut the fenders to fit the tires I want and sprayed them inside and out. I also sprayed the front of the front nose piece. Looks good but I still have to splice in the remaining lights.








I think I will spray the rest of the jeep from the windows down. Give it that two tone look and some protection.
