Default First Cherokee and lovin it!

So i recently just got my Cherokee. i'm almost 18 here in a few weeks and i must say i love the forums and i love how everyone does things differently i used to drive this BMW. i've always loved to mod anything from my go-ped to my car to even my backpack and stuff. i love making things a part of me and thats what modding is all about!
i'm new here and i already love these forums.



and i mean you can only customize these so much before they look like everyone elses. i miss her soooo much :/.

but now i'm in this


I've had it for a week now.
and this is what i have started, im still deciding on lifts.


Had to put this sticker :P Sorry guys

Cup Holders were a must!

My Valentine One
Wired Through The Stereo Cutout in the dash and up and around the glove box.






Well it's nice to be here and i will update this thread everytime i do something new on my JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

Nice jeep man, I'm sure a mod will move it. What are your future plans?

If you want it lifted, it'll be a suspension lift. The XJ is uni-body.

As for cup holders, there was a factory cupholder that mounted on the passenger side of the console towards the front. Quadratec has 'em.

That's a huge change going from a black Beemer to a white XJ.

haha yeah i can't go 60 around my round abouts or 100 on the on ramp :P

but yeah those are 20 bucks and i might get that in time, 3 dollar cup holders arent that bad in my opinion tho

, this is my daily driver , do you think a suspension lift will lead to other problems down the road? oh and i will be going off roading every now and then, it's too fun to pass up.

No you'll be fine with a suspension lift, I'm lifting my DD 4.5 inches. It's physically impossible to do a body lift on a jeep Cherokee cuz the frame is part if the body (unibody).

If your talking about a tire, the stock should either be a 225 or a 235
