This is my new (to me) 2000 cherokee sport. Desert sand pearlcoat (ugly as sin, but hides dirt well), 55,000 miles (I scored this for $4600.00), automatic, 6cyl. 4.0. I got 2 kids in catholic school and I'm a firefighter so definitely not rich! Build might take forever, but I'll keep posting as I move along.

I'd like to start with a lift and tires. Gonna do some research as to which combination will work best for me. It still has to remain my daily driver.

I sprayed my stock rims black. Got the idea from another jeep site. The playing cards were a good idea!

Worked GREAT! I used a cheapo flat black primer, then a black wheel paint made by duplicolor. It wasn't a perfect paintjob, but PLENTY good enough for wheels. And it's proved to be durable. Beat them up pretty good yesterday and they still looked great!

My plans are: some type of lift, bigger tires on cragar soft 8s, some cool stickers, one of those nifty roof basket thingys, aftermarket front and rear bumpers, maybe a winch, an air freshener, some possible engine and exhaust mods for hp and sound, and maybe some bedliner underneath to keep her young and pretty down below.
