Default Just a 93XJ

So after working hard for awhile a few things started to work out well. Got a WJ being built and then all of a sudden this thing appeared. Bought it for $600 and haven't regretted it. Yet.
It's a 1993 2dr Cherokee with only 124k miles. Only a base model with 2wd blahblah, easy conversion. But anyways this will be my daily driver but first it needs a lot of work. Its a 4cyl 2.5l, with an AX5 tranny(fun as hell to drive). The interior is good, but also bad. Its missing a headliner, working radio, and...cupholders..Atleast the dash is in perfect condition
Some pics:
First mod The awesome club logo.

Torn apart to fix the turn signals.

The rust...

And bondo...?


I do love the roominess of the engine bay with a 2.5 in it


Anyways this will just be a simple restore for now, but Im already thinking about a 4wd conversion so maybe itll be trail worthy?

I'd never say the 2.5L was "fun" to drive but maybe yours has more power.

It looks clean other than the couple bad spots.

Ah I was trying to throw a bit of sarcasm in the post, but the gas mileage is pretty good. When I do the 4WD conversion I might try to find a cheap 4.0 to swap in just for the extra power. There are tons of those engines down here, and a few ZJ v8s but I dont want to get too extreme with the powertrain though.
I was actually surprised it wasnt worse cause it was sitting in a field for about a year
