SO heres the story.... Sold my 11 sec eagle talon to buy a 300 dollar 1999 jeep cherokee with 35,000 original miles. bought it from the city of detroit so i knnew it needed a little work... needless to say i was excited on the way home from the auction house... it was storming and a pos dakota spun right in to my front end !causing this...



I am an optimist and i had some money left over.. so i decided to fix it

Should come with instructions and the list of tools you need to use.

BFG doesn't make a 33" krawler to my knowledge. The smallest they make is 35x12.5

Looks sweet man! Sucks about the dakota hitting you, it looks like you fixed everything though! 11 second talon? Do you have any videos? Post up some pics of you putting the lift on.
