well, i got a bone stock 89 Cherokee not long ago. Maybe 2 weeks ago i guess. Anyways, since then i have done a few changes to it. First was my lights on top. Dont think i have any true stock pics tho.







and now she sits like this. RC 6.5in SA lift and Pacer wheels.





Hopefully soon ill have some 33s on it and eventually get a long arm kit. But for now im very happy with it.

Let me know what you all think. Im just starting to really get into jeeps so just work with me lol

got a small update for the XJ. Went to a local JY and picked up an oem t-case skid and front skid. Paid 25 bux for both.

Was gonna get the fuel tank skid but i couldnt get the bolts out. anybody know how i could break em loose or get them out? They are rusted bad and the nutstrip started to bend and break.
