I decided it is time to start my first jeep build. I have an 1987 Jeep Cherokee, that I bought from the original owner with 127k miles, in august. I have installed a CB Radio, changed the water pump and replaced the seats. My next quest will be a 3 inch lift. I have a 4 year old girl and a son on the way and no job currently so tax money will need to pay for the lift. looking for cheap as possible and a good ride. So i am looking at the rough county lift either series 1 or 2. Here are the pictures for your enjoyment. More to come.

Thats a nice looking jeep. I will be ordering my lift in about a week, waiting for tax money to pay for it. Also just picked up a free quick disconnect from somebody off the internet. Cant wait to add that to the mix. My baby boy was born on saturday though and he cant wait for his first jeep ride. At least thats what he told me. I will be going to riverside area in 4 weeks if you want to hit some trails while im there.

I am not offroading in riverside which by the way is illegal in any riverside county. my family lives in the riverside area so i will be staying there. There are places up by idyllwild and past the mountain. I would be happy to take you with me if you want

Replaced the wiper motor now it is working good. I can actually drive without having to pull over to wait for it to stop raining. This weekend I will probably be coloring rims, installing new headliner, and coloring plastics.
