Default My 99 XJ "Prom Queen"

Here is my 99 Cherokee.. Not necessarily a build thread. Just pictures I have from over time. I originally traded another vehicle for it . Started off with old lift parts, blown shocks, only thing good was a home brew radius arm setup. with Johnny joints all around.

Very clean to start with. Fresh paint and mint interior.

33"s Low pinion dana 30, chrysler 8.25 stock gears open diff.

Plenty flexy

First set of 35"s got for dirt cheap but were dry rotted

35 12.50 Cooper STTS , 8" Lift , new front springs, rear springs, shocks all the way around , RHD Drag link , v8 ZJ tie rod flipped over the knuckles. New track bar 4.56 gears , trussed high pinion dana 30, Alloy usa U joints, Air locker front, Ford 8.8 rear axle with lunch box locker. ( disk brakes)

Was riding rough in the rear due to **** poor shackle angle.



Me realizing I need limit straps. ( I pulled it out myself)

Home brew cowl hood, removed upper passenger link off radius arms, johnny joint drivers side upper control arm mount on axle end, home brew rear bumper cut rear quarter panels. ( yes i need to get new u bolts and yes the rear bumper is a little off ) grooved the tires on the main lugs.

Next mod is cut the rear hatch in half, trash the bottom half make latches for the top half and mount the spare tire flat half in half out on a tire gate style setup. Somewhat like this. And once i leave Alaska ( shock killer cold) Im going to upgrade to fox 2.0s And get rid of the tail light housings and flush mount the LEDS

Plenty of carnage.

Im sure I missed plenty of details , feel free to ask anything or critique

A few extra bits to add

No sway bars and love it. 100 percent removed. It is a daily driver and I have no concerns, steering box brace, SYE , home made snorkel in its future from exhaust tubing.
