Default 99 XJ Project Mayhem (pic intense!)

So im returning to Cherokee forum, i used to have an 88 xj that i loved until i blew the head gasket in the snow last winter, fixed it up and sold it, and yesterday i traded my 01 Suzuki gsxr600 for this new project
99 jeep Cherokee, 5.5" Rubicon express long arm travel lift. had 152k when it got dropped in my driveway.

the story with the jeep goes something like this, about a year ago it got tipped on it side one of the first couple times it ever saw dirt. previous owner was on some culvert and tipped the jeep, resulting in some good damage.

ill let the pictures do the talking:
