Hello, my name is cody and I recently got a hold of a blown up 98 Cherokee with 127k miles. At the time my zj was having tranny problems and my father and I tried a few things and it didn't fix it so We decided to take on a new project. It would be.this Xj. Our plan is to.take the engine out of my zj and put in the Cherokee, use the coils and.shocks off the front of the grand and lower control arms. I've done a few things so.far and I will Keep you guys posted on whatever We do, thanks for checking.this out!

Here was the Xj when.We first brought it home.

We spent hours cleaning the inside and out because my friend blew it up one night at a friends.house. We got.the front nose on, put my 31s off my zj on it and no lift, got my sound system in it and put a light bar I got off another friends old Xj on.

Well did alittle work today, took the end caps off the front bumper, I dunno whether I should leave them off or what. And I got some hella 500's going on the front. They aren't mounted but they're sitting up there. Got my box in the back and I'm trying to decide where to.put the fore extinguisher mount.

Yeah, they can't be all perfect. Still a nice XJ though.

Looks like an underbed box... Usually mount them under flatbeds.
