Default 99 XJ Limited: Project Great White

A couple of days ago I picked up a white, 1999 Jeep Cherokee Limited with 145,xxx miles. Its a 4x4, np242 tc, d30/8.25, tow package. Body has a couple of dings and it was in a small front end accident but overall looks good. Grill and bumper were replaced. The interior is in great condition minus the two tears in the drivers seat and the sagging head liner. Power everything and everything works. AC blows SNOWBALLS!!Transmission shifts smoothly and engine looks clean. All fluids are clean as well. Little rust. Needs new shocks, bushings, and rear leaf springs and an alignment as soon as possible. Also could use two front tires.It leaks a little but i think it was definately a steal for the price. I bought it for $1,800.

Plans for the future include 3.5 RE super flex suspension and 31's and some armor from JCR. Not sure about wheels at the moment cuz I like the ones that came with the Limiteds. Pictures coming soon!
