Talking Our Blue 94 4 Door XJ

Hello everyone! My names david and im 19 year old who has a girlfriend who owns a jeep! sadly I drive a toyota camry which my grandma gave me for a graduation present. we have basicly made this jeep ours though i do most of the work on it and we split driving it on the trails. well basicly she bought for her first car a 97 mustang well being a ford an all it started to break little things here and there so we traded it for a 94 cherokee with a 4.5 re lift and 31 in tires this jeep was not perfect but what jeep is. it leaked oil the gauges didnt work the lower control arms needed to be replaced it leaked power steering fluid um and im sure im missing alot of stuff oh ya and the frame rail was cracked by the steering box giving us a loud pop everytime we turned the steering wheel but for somereason she wanted it. oh ya he forgot to mention most of the things i listed when we traded so we found out on our own slowly

here she is the night we traded for it





so since i was a little upset at the fact he didnt tell us about all the problems he gave us some 33 inch super swampers and a visor with lights



and here is the visor



this was the 31 inch tires day time pictures







now this was with the 33 inch swampers at praire city in rancho cordova ca
first time we drove it up anything big



i will post more picture tomorrow!!! she got the jeep in december and since we have spend over 5000 dollars on it with many upgrades to the cosmetics and engine and suspesion and stuff stay tuned

by the afternoon i had put the rack on it and went camping (camp far west lake)the same day!!:cool2




poser shot



this was a different camping trip at Collins Lake CA





a little rubbage



and i dont have pictures of the these items i replaced

2 core radiator
rc lower control arms
shackles
yellow top optima
water pump
kc 130 watt lights(gonna be on the rack)
on the front bumper i have the harbor freight 100 watt lights
rhino lined the back of it
changed drum brakes
replaced front passenger hub assembly
driveline ujoints
new starter
had central 4wd install beefed up steering components
and probably more i cant remember


next i have to change the tranny mount
and reposition the shackle angle
regear to 456 and lock the rear and strengthen the steering box

How much did you pay for that paint job, and what would you rate the quality of it out of 10? Love the color, btw.

836 for the paint job that was sand primer and some body work and i would give it a 9.5 outa 10 because of a little bit of overspray but if it chips at all we can bring it in for the next year

Hah! That sucks but it does look good. My grill matches the rest of my jeep as well.

well my friend cant get his xj to smog so he is parting it out!!! And he let me have first take on anything i wanted..... so i ended up with a hitch the whole complete headliner with a sound bar and speakers and lights a headliner cb mount and the lift struts for the rear hatch and a back seat that is in perfect shape mine was bent in the middle all for 45:thumbup1;

and he gave my friend his red top optima for free all he had to do was give him his walmart battery

So i went camping this weekend and forgot to take any pictures well my friend in his toyota truck thought he could get up this obsticle by our campsite and couldnt so i had to try and get up it. i didnt want to disconnect the sway bar so is it bad to wheel with the sway bar on.? i couldnt get up the obstacle i need a locker... but i did get farther than the toyota did with 35s. but as i was spinnning the tires i finally caught some traction and hopped up a rock and heard a pop from what sounded like the driver side hub area so we backed off after that and drove home the 40 miles and everything felt fine but there was a new pop when turning to the left and braking. Today my gf took my little bro to school and said when she braked she felt a clicking noise what sounded like the driveline or something moving and i havent had a chance to look at it yet wondering if you guys had any input of what it could be????
