Sup guys my names Derek from jersey and i first bought my 1997 cherokee sport in november of this year for 4,800$ with only 52k on the clock. Pretty sick deal, however i really missed out on all of my power options and sunroof in my expedition:/. Well, lets get on with the build.The cherokee was completely stock when i bought it, but i soon changed the headunit, and put a subwoofer in the back. I wasnt satisfied, i then added a 3inch rough country basic suspenion lift in january(which i bought on cl brand new for 150$), and rode better then with the stock suspension. About a month later, i bought a set of rims(not sure of the name) and some 31inch general grabbers at2. The jeep looks sick now and i havent really done much of anything else except make removable doors. I hope to get a new front bumper in the front and possibly a roof rack.The jeep now has 65K if anyone wondered. Also has anyone had any trouble with their rough country suspension kits? My u-bolts were not long enough not sure why. Anyway let me know what you guys think! Thanks for looking! Heres some pics.....

Heres my first suv: 02 Ford Expedition

Good looking XJ and nice paint job on the 20. What's the setup on the bike? I rode awhile back, but just started getting into it again.

PS Nice Surf Taco sticker lol just ate there today

Nice sounds like a good setup

Mine started it's life as a Haro F3 but all that remains is the frame and seat post clamp. I have Shadow Conspiracy 11B Bars, Animal Edwin Grips, Animal bar ends, Diatech Gold Finger, Shadow Conspiracy Straight brake cable, Salt stem, Proper Houdini fork, Alex MX22 FRont wheel with AMX hub, F3 Frame, FSM Pig crank set with Primo 36 Tooth Sprocket, Wellgo pedals with replaceable pins, We The People seat and seat post, KMC 710 chain with slotted links and hollow pins, Diacompe Hombro 990 brakes with fiesta kit, Sun Big City Rim with DK Macho flip flop hub with a 13 tooth cog, Animal ASM front with Haro multi surface rear.

Before I had my XJ it was all about the bike, that's why it's built up so much lol
