This is my 92 Larado, I traded a guy a car for it about 3 weeks ago. My mom had a cherokee when I was in high school and I always wanted one, due to my inability to stop breeding I needed more seats than my F150 had for when the family wants to go camping with me.... so I decided to get a cherokee.
This how the truck looked when I got it, as of now my plans are as follows.

cut fenders
try to stuff 31's under it
maybe lift 2 or 3 inches
fix a/c
build a snorkle that comes out in front of passenger side of the cowl
roof rack
bumpers
tear out carpet and bedline the inside

I change my plan every other day or so mainly due to funding issues so wee will see how this plays out.

My overall plan is to load it with as much fresh backstrap and wild pork as possible.

Serously my plan for now is just to cut the fenders and get my tires and go from there.

Did some cuttin' today, cut and folded the rear fenders.

my son helping

Front fenders before the new meat

after the 31/10.50/15 wranglers

Next step is to paint bed liner around wheel wells and along the bottom.
Thanks everyone I have been learning a lot from this site!
