So last month i finally got another cherokee but this time i made it a 95 ZJ with a 4.0! so far i love this thing. It rides so much better then my 91 xj did. So far what i did to it was a full tune up. plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter, cap and rotor. oh an a new tie rod end.

my very little plan for very little money
-a 2" bb with new shocks
-31" tires
-home made roof rack

heres some pics of it. sorry there arnt many.

so I was having a very hard time trying to find out where this noise was coming from until my gf drove my jeep down the road and i followed with a camera. It was coming from the diff.
