Default My jeep build (project $9)

Hello all my name is micheal and ive decided to start a jeep build. I bought this 97 jeep cherokee about month ago for $2500. It has 3 inch lift not sure what kind,31x10.50 tires, custom steel bumpers and custom steel sliders, hella lights. It is a auto with 216k and runs out great..

-I have since bought a smittybilt hi-lift jack.
-Got items to tune her up
-Bought a swissgear backpack to keep tow straps and first aid and
other random stuff in
-And got some krylon fusion to paint my trim.

and hope to do more in as soon as fund come available.

Also reason this is (project $9) is cause the day i went and bought her i go by bank and draw out $2500 and got my bank statement and i had $9 dollars left in my savings . So i figured thats will be a good name for her project 9.

Here are some pics.

First pic i took of her after week of having her.


Couple from wheeling trip me and brother did about 2 weeks ago




Here is $7 dollar pack i bought to hold random items for jeep.


here is my hi-lift jack i ordered. I still havent got it mounted on jeep yet.


Here some random things i bought for jeep that still hasnt been put on lol.



Here is how she sit right now after i washed her today.





Sry i tryied to hurry make this i got to be at work in 30 mins will update soon, hope you guys like it..

Well guys i still have the jeep and have been thinking a lot about changing some stuff on her. I really want to rub bigger tires and not sure which way i want to go to do this, Im sure with my 3 inch lift i could cut fenders and run 32''s by 11.50. But also been thinking lifting it up to a 4.5, Im not even sure what brand lift my jeep has on it just know its 3 inch lift.

nice ride, throw that fram oil filter in the garbage and get a purolator...seriously. I thought I needed a new motor and threw the fram out and put a purolator in..no more noise.
