Default 96 xj sport resurection

I just bought a 96 cherokee sport, they said it has a rubicon 3' lift but i gotta double check that, nice set of 31's on it but the engine is toasted... but with a nice body and good interior for 500 i just couldn't pass it up. Pictures and updates soon to come!

I think her head is cracked it has a coolant leak underneath and the guy at the shop said they ran it outta antifreeze on the way to his place and it got hot... so now i gotta get a new head and a gasket set... let the games begin!

With my autometer gauge it came with a thing to mount it in the dash. I just wanted the cool pod thing because it looks awesome!
