Default Project "BLACK Edition" 2001 Cherokee XJ

It was time to start a thread for my build to see what you guys think. It all started with a 2001 Jeep Cherokee XJ Limited with 186,000 miles that I am the third owner of.

I then went crazy gathering parts for the build. Here is the list of what I have picked up:
- Smittybilt XRC front and rear bumpers with bull bar
- Smittybilt Defender roof rack
- Smittybilt spare tire mount for roof rack
- Quadratec Q9500i Stealth winch
- JCR Offroad rock sliders
- Five ATX Teflon 18x9 wheels
- Five RBP 275/65R18 M/T tires
- Zone Offroad 4.5 inch lift kit with new rear leafs

So far I have added the front bumper, bull bar, and roof rack. So far so good...more to come!! Stay tuned!!

Nice build! I would normally say the wheels are a little big for my taste, but these look good.

Thanks a ton for the awesome comments guys! I'm really happy with how it turned out, and the ride quality is way better than I expected. I was unsure about the 18 inch wheels too, but was talked into it and glad I did. I have been wheelin already with a buddy who has a dedicated crawler and hit some stuff pretty hard. The 18's held up fine. More pics to come of the Jeep in action, and with the new LED's.
