Default Big red build

I picked up a 99 Cherokee from a buddy about a year ago. I sold my last cherokee for a deposit on a new car but turned out i didnt need too. So i needed a new ride and went and got another one.

Lucky for me its a southern jeep so it has no rust on it. Just the southern charm. I have a big list of stuff i want to do for this jeep and its a long process and hope it pays off in the end.

Start off with pics from the beginning when i first got it.

Default New wheels

Originally purchased this set of wheels. they were mounted on a 04 Grand Cherokee so the pattern was 5x5. So i went and got spacers but they were insanely pushed out it was almost undrivable. The wheels were 15x10. Tires are a 32x11.50.









So i found a guy on facebook selling 15x8 5x4.5 pattern the exact size i need and offset. So i jumped on them. The guy actually had 2 extras so i got 6 wheels for the price of 4. Got the tires remounted and balanced and then mounted on the jeep.

I like the 3" lifts and wider tires makes them look just right. Anything over that and it just looks like your over compensating or just a trail rig. Those 3" looks and capabilities covers most applications so you can daily it at that height and even offroad some. I'm thinking of doing a 3" on my new green 1995.
