Smile project "AC-130"

This is going to be my first jeep build, it will start pretty slow as im only working part time at a parts store and im a full time student. but enough about me, after looking at many cherokees. i finally found the right one. most of them had lifts, tires and the whole 9 yards, but i wanted to build my own from stock. so this is where my 2000 jeep cherokee limited came into play.

This was the first day I picked it up off some kid off craigslist. Traded my 1993 Integra for it. It had a busted rear hatch. And a random stall problem.

The next day I spent cleaning it And enjoying my new jeep. Never knew how much 4.0 drinks gas but I'm fine with that.

Few day's later I was getting really annoyed with my xj shutting off randomly and not letting me open that 4.0 wide open without shutting down. So I replaced my corroded positive cable and terminal and replaced the ckp and after that it continued to stall

Update. My jeep still stalls out. It's not a fuel problem. Has to be electrical. It's really getting old. I can't enjoy my Cherokee like i should. Any help would be great.thanks

Since my jeep still wasn't acting right and stalling I kind of ignored the fact. But it still got me to work and school and now I really wanted to break it during the weekend.

So I took it mudding. Stalling and all with bald tires still did good. Never got stuck plus didn't have any recovery on my jeep.
