It all started with a $500 93 Cherokee (or as I like to call it, xj). I've been steady fixing little things here and there, and now I'm getting more into upgrading.
Things needed when I first got it:
Battery, slave cylinder, tune-up, brakes, body repair, headliner, and some style.

I've accomplished all of that so far except the headliner.
1st shot is when I first got it home.
2nd pic is after it got some new tires, shocks, wheels, and I had my list of needs, other than the liner done.
3rd picture was after I cut the fenders, bedlined the bottom part of the door/rocker, and painted the bedliner silver to keep the scheme.
4th picture is an interior view (obviously) after my new shifter and steering wheel.
5th shot is after some cans of Bahama sea blue and my homemade fender flares.
P.s. How do I seperate my attachments with words?

So, as you can see, Ive changed the color scheme a bit. I didn't care too much for the black, and I've always wanted a jeep like this. I've painted most of the body with Krylon, Bahama Sea Blue along with some black, Rustoleum bedliner on the bottoms of the doors/rockers. I've installed the front flares that I made out of some 1x3, aluminum angle. (Back will be on soon). The roof will be painted with Grizzly Grips white bedliner.
Today I put on my 2" Rustys, add a leaf kit. 2" coils and a new secondary leaf. It took me and my Dad 5 hrs, and everything went relatively smoothly. The jeep stands a hair high in the rear, but it'll settle soon enough. The coils gave me exactly 2" of lift. I love how it rides now.
The first pic is before the lift, and the second is right after.

Do you still need a headliner for this? When I put the overhead console in mine I snagged the headliner as well so I wouldn't have to cut the original one. If you want it let me know. I'll be in Greenville soon.

Nah. My headliner is in good shape, it's just sagging. I've already made an appointment for it to get re-done this week. Thanks though.
