Default highschooler with a Big Red

OK a little about me, I am 17 and this xj is my first car. this is how I acquired it, My friend wanted to get a cherokee and called me up because he knew my family already had one and that I know a little about them... He found a 2000 Cherokee sport 145,000 miles, stock everything on CL and I told him it was a pretty good deal ($2500).
Here it was

So he bought it and then decided he wanted to lift it, and I said I would help him. He got a 4.5 RC lift and it went in relatively easy. And he also found some 31x10.5 to throw on there

And then once his mom rode in it for the first time she got a little freaked out cause it had some wobble going on and made him sell it (I think he got a little scared also), LOL. I then bought it from him for only $3000. Once I brought it home I put a new K&N cold air intake in and a super torque chip. After a few weeks it got cold and I was tired of driving in a cold car in the morning, So I put a viper auto start/Alarm in it!. also put new radio and speakers in


more pics!
