Well i have offically owned this for 6mo and i can honestly say i am blown away... I love it. I picked this up September last year for a steal, i currently have a decent amount of $ into repairing things from the owner before last(last owner was a friend).

Current Specs:

1997 Cherokee Sport
310k(give or take) Miles on it
AW4 trans
4.5" Rusty's lift
33x12.50x15 Goodyear Duratrac's
3.55 gears(will be going to 4.56)
A/C to OBA conversion(need to finish my Air tank)
Rusty's Quick Disco's
Custom front bumper
Custom Headlight harness w/relays
Autopal Housings
Hella 100/130 watt Yellow bulbs

Current stasis:






Stage 1 Plans(finished before July):

Finish OBA setup(plumb & mount Tank)
Add Recovery points(2 front,2 rear)
Aquire a CB radio
Dual Battery Setup(http://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.c...ng_diagram.pdf)
Build Roof rack(*plans pictured below*)
LED "fog" lights(2 12" TWF lights, 2 6" TFW lights )
Add small (8"Hx24"L) hoop to front bumper


Stage 2 Plans(finished when $ allows):

4.56 Gears Front and Rear
Spartan Lockers Front and rear
Custom Rear Bumper(*plans pictured below*)
Monsta Liner Paint job(Jungle love color,http://www.monstaliner.com/forms/monstaliner_colors.htm)
Ridgid Co Sliders(http://www.rigidco.com/RR22x.htm)


I am sure there will be more to add to list(a Stage 3 possibly).

Roof rack Plans:



Rear Bumper Plans:






Recently i had been getting really bad vibrations in the driveline(Jan-Early March). I figured the rear u-joints were going out... boy was i wrong. I'll let the picture do the talking.



What the Picture doesnt show is the similar damage on the right(in the pic) "tine" since the only part that is left faced me when taking the picture. The joint fell apart as soon as i took the shaft out.

runs great,drips a few drops of oil when sitting for more than a few days. but starts up and runs everyday. I need to eventually replace the fuel pump,fuel filter(i have a bad check valve).

i thought id never see a u joint this bad again. i just fixed a trans for a kid and had the same problem. he thought it was normal for a lifted truck to drive like that doing 100+ from chicago everyday with bad u joints, and wheel bearings
