Ok so here is what i got a 1994 jeep cheroke.It was given to me by my father and i put a 3.5inch lift with 31s.yes i did have a old build plan but here is the real way i am going to go.

updates to come:
1.new custom front bumper
2.5.5 inch rubicon ex lift kit (short arm)
3.33x11.50x16s
4.SYE
5.stripe on the lower side of jeep
6.6000lb warn winch
7.custom rock sliders
8.bushwaker flares
9.hood vents
10.hood stripe

* little inside look of what made me think of this
the idea came from a jeep comanche i had seen i am going to use the idea of the stripe down the bottem of door and put cherokee cheif and also install hoodvents and flares to beef it up also put new headers and intake this jeep is and was always in my family and with it running on the 222000 mark i o it some favors and i will make it 1 of a kind and bring it back to when it was riden on the beachs and driven daily.

6000lbs is not very big for a xj winch. Typically you want the winch to double the weight of the vehicle. Not saying it wont work, but you may burn it out

XJ looks awesome!

I found a 94 at my local pick-n-pull that had 2 of those same lights mounted on the front bumper. GF wanted me to snag them but I didn't. Do they have bulbs or are they sealed beam? I may go back for em!
