Default my first build ever, 1996 jeep cherokee

ok first off im 16 in high school and work two jobs, im an assistant manager at a dominos pizza and i also own a landscaping company, i pay for everything and the two thing i pay for most are my jeep and my girlfriend ha... i got my jeep maybe 10 month to a year ago using my own hard earned cash and i felt like i was on top of the world when i bought it.....i had it for about 3-4 months when i wrecked it coming home from work in the rain and bent the frame about 2-3 inches and messed up the whole front end.....i rebuilt all on my own with the help of my buddy dave i spent about 800-900 dollars getting it fixed....for the frame i had taken a winch to it and just pulled it out as straight as possible and its pretty much perfect now...i have pics of it before i wrecked it, when i wrecked it and after i fixed it......after it was all fixed i the whole front driver side was black and didnt want to pay for it to get painted so i went up to sherwin williams and grabbed john deer green paint and rolled it on at my uncles shop lol its horrible but im looking for fun the beauty....that all cost me about 75 bucks....and i recently bought s10 leaf springs and rusty 3.5 coil springs all for 90 bucks and i plan in using the shackles from the s10 leafs to give it another 1 inch lift in the rear, im installing those this saturday night after work and im pretty much jumping out of my seat right now cause im so excited....and then ima convert it to 4wd when i have the money to do so and then i really wanna add some camo to the paint but im not sure if i can do it lol....id rather have help for that one....anyway i'll keep updates.....here are some pics.....

Nice color to advertize your lawn business.

Cudo's to you being so young and working hard for the things you want in life.

Good luck with the build.

Hey man I really wanna see what your jeep looks like after you get the s10 leaf on. Im thinkin about doin the same thing along with a v8 grand cherokee spring and my 2" spacers up front. If ya could do some pics and some explanation of any problems you encounter and stuff like that it would be awsome man. By the way the JD Green dont look too bad
Good job on all the work you done yourself too!

Thanks guys and will post pics don't worry like I said I should be doing it Saturday night after work....and what I would do instead of zj springs is I would get on craigslist and look for some lift springs that someone is getting rid of or either f150 springs from an 80s model, but they're a little stiff....but ya I payed 40 for my springs and they are only like 2 months old and weren't flexed at all and they are rustys 3.5...you can find anything on craigslist.....
