Well I owned my previous Jeep was running good but the motor took a dump so I sold it and has been missing having a Jeep so couple days ago this one came up for sale and I jumped on it.

93 Jeep Cherokee Inline 6 5 speed for $700 bucks.

I drove it home and everything was great untill I noticed some rust underneath so I went ahead and ripped inteior out and come to find out there was ALOT of rust. Well my uncle gonna get me some free metal and im gonna weld it in.

To make matters worst Rusty started burning water and come to find out I found water in the oil and oil in the water and I did check that before I bought it so time for a new head gasket so many pictures to come slowly but surely.

Well its been a while but I started to tear it down between school and work. It wasn't as bad considering everything is inline. Only problem now is that my fuel line near the tank pop a hole and I broke my thermostat sensor in the rear of the head So now this weekend I plan on getting it up and running and probably work on my Honda Civic and get some ac back in her since these temperatures are getting on up there.

Well I got some work done the past 2 weeks. I finished cutting out all the rust and any surface rust I managed to clean it up. I Went ahead and applied a couple coats of bed liner and it turned out pretty good. I found some floor pans on rockauto.com thats pretty cheap that Im gonna go ahead and buy.

Just last week I was pulling out of taco bell and this women it the side of my car. Well after it was all said and done I ended up pocketing $1000 dollars So as of now I do believe Im gonna order rough country 6.5 inch lift short arm. If you dont mind give me some of your opinions good or bad on it so I dont make a horrible mistake. And also I got a free rough country sticker so that was a plus

Here's the car and while I was in the junk yard buying back my old wheels from my previous jeep. (Dude I sold it to put my 2 inch lift on it and put 35 on it smh.) When I took the wheels and tires off one side had 35s and the other had 32?
