ok so here's the story about 2 weeks ago i bought a red 2 door jeep Cherokee sport 2wd(i know). shes my first jeep and i bought her with the intention of a DD and i had some thoughts of a couple of upgrades and mods but i was hit with the bug(i think i got it from one of guys )

this is what she looked like the day i got her





she wasn't the prettiest but i she was in pretty good shape i got her with 144k

she had a problem with the hatch not staying up so i took a trip to autozone and bought some after market lift supports

now i can work with out having to hold up the hatch



Thanks

i added some cheap trapezoidal lights for a little better night vision



I'm a high school student with a more than limited budget so posts might be few and far apart.


Thanks

i started with something that would not required much money so i went ahead and started working on the headliner, it is coming of and the padding was crumbling. I took off the rear over head speaker fiber glass thing and hit it with a hose then sanded and scraped what seems to be the POs attempt to fix it with hot glue(in Florida)



tomorrow i am going to take a trip to AutoZone and buy some spray on bed liner

Thanks

I finished the sound bar, i scraped the **** out of it and gave it a coat of bed liner waited 20 minutes and repeated 5 times

I also started to remove the headliner but i encountered a problem... its not fiber glass like the sound bar its some wierd fiber material o well ill figure it out tomorrow

I'm about to do my headliner as well. What i've heard is that for the main piece, you just scrape off all the foam, give it a good sanding, and then start spraying the glue. The pre-existing glue on the board is nearly impossible to get off.
