Bought this 87 cherokee for 300 bucks and it ran good. body need work.
Changing the whole look wasnt the idea, i just couldn't stop my self LOL
started with steel flares then i tackled the front grille. Wife really wanted a rubicon so I kinda gave her 1/4. she likes it now. bumper was made of 3/16 steel. Gave it a more agressive look. The rear lights had to go so we shaved them off and went with external ones. The rims are rubicons on 255/75/17 and 1-1/2 spacers. rooftop was coated with rustoleum bedliner it gave it a nice shell look and finished off with a rubicon green. Time it took us 5 long months. but worth every beer hehe.
please leave your feedback

What a fun project this turned out to be. Now ready for some dunes and trails. Hell yeah!!!!!

Well if you get it cast so that its a drop in unit I would buy one. Fiberglass is not something I myself am able to do. And im sure there are alot of guys in the same boat.
