Default Project Midnight. 2001 xj.

Well here's my 3rd jeep, its a 2001 Cherokee sport, I just got this a few weeks ago, so ill fill you in with what all's been done, 3" coils, 1.5" spacer, (not sure what kind) 4.5" rusty's rear leafs, brand new skyjacker shocks. Rusty's upper and lower control arms. Front and rear Aussie lockers, 8.25 rear axle. Np231, Dana 30 front axle, aW4, aftermarket front steel bumper with milemarker 8000 pound winch with synthetic rope, aftermarket rear bumper with tire carrier. 33x10.50x15s, black steelies, TC skid, switch for electric fan, Hood vents, 3.55 gears, the source 15lbs. Co2 tank, hi-lift Jack, safari roof rack, cobra CB, ruffstuff front and rear diff. Covers, HD trac bar, 1 ton tie rod, 3/4 tie rod ends, custom cowl snorkel, breathers ran from front and rear axles, and transfer case to under the Hood with filter. Its a pretty built Jeep, and so far im pleased with it. i already had a thread but it kinda started out crappy. i will post pictures of everything ive done as soon as i get home.

Future plans:
-new wheels (atleast 3 of my wheels are bent from offroading, which makes my jeep shake pretty bad)
-head head unit, speakers and amp. (already have 2 12" pioneers ready to go in.)
-H4 conversion crystal head lights.
-new fog lights. (not sure what kind yet.)
-long arm upgrade (eventually.)
-4.5" coils to replace the 3" coils and 1.5" spacers.
-new steering stabilizer
-window tint and visor strip.
-some kind of new fender flares, or just take them off, theyre tj flares. i dont like them. lol

thats all i can think of right now, hopefully itll be a productive build. bare with me on the pictures, haha.

Decided to just upload pictures from my phone so you guys will be more interested lol. I took my roof rack off. And spent probably too much time cleaning it in the last two days.
