Default My 98'

Well I decided to do a build thread for my 98 Cherokee. I've owned this since 2005 and it was in great shape when i bought it, almost no scratch's. It had 151,000 miles when i got it and had a teraflex budget boost lift and 30' tires that rubbed bad.

Since i got it i've added the roof rack, lights, black steelies, bushwackers, trimmed the hell outta the fenders, 31's, a lot of scratch's lol and almost 50,000 miles. Also swapped motors after i blew up the first being stupid.


This is it from the rear all saggy


And from the front

Its been a great Jeep and i plan on keeping it for a long time.
So my future list of mods that i hope to do:

Bumpers
Winch
Re Gear to 4:10 i think and add a locker
33's
4.5" long arm, not sure which one yet
SYE and Driveline
everything else that i can't think of right now
Wheel it until it breaks, fix it and do it again.

Sould be following up soon with some shots of the new front springs, shocks and trackbar. Plus rear bastard pack and stainless brake lines in the next couple of days.

Well I'm working on the suspension right now, adding 3" coils, new shocks and adjustable track bar and building a bastard pack for the rear. Stainless brake lines should be in tomorrow


New Trackbar


And New Front Shocks


Springs and shocks installed


shot of springs and track bar

Still working on the right combination of leaves for the rear pack so as soon as i'm done with that i will get picks up and also the new brake lines.
