Default The mutt of a jeep

Alrighty, I guess it is time to start one of these! Okay, 1990 Cherokee 4.0l with 276XXX Miles. 4.5" leaf springs in the back and 2" spacers in the front... yes it was bought that way But it is soon to be fixed!! The axles did get swapped out for a newer ones from a 98 I think. So I don't have to deal with the vacuum lines. It came in 5 different colors so I painted the front primer to get it down to two colors.

So for the fun stuff!!

1: Level out the jeep at a full 4.5" lift
2: Chop top
3: Custom bumpers
4: Roof rack
5: Snokel
6: OD green paint





mounted some lights


Got new shoes




Painted the rims


Chopped my fenders


So far so good!!!

Who said chopping the top would make it a not nice jeep. It is an opinion however I do agree with you, I think it looks better unchopped. Although depends on the quality of the work on a chop top it can look like a total POS or it can look really cool.
