Default Project "Slow Zombie"

Here's the story of my Jeep. Late July 2012 I decided to buy a Jeep Cherokee and sell my 2008 Chevy Cobalt. I got tired of borrowing SUVs for when I go fishing so a Cherokee seemed to be the perfect vehicle. Found mine on Craigslist for $2,500 its a 1990 Jeep Cherokee Laredo, I6 4.0L with 116,000 miles, had 1 owner and from Pennsylvania. Not much rust which is a big deal up here in Upstate New York. After I bought it and looked at this site, I decided it will also be Zombie, Apocalypse, BOV, etc... This will be done slowly, hence the title.

Here's some pics from Day 1...

Only able to do little things to the Jeep. So I stole the tactical flashlight mount idea. Here's the thread https://www.cherokeeforum.com/f67/ta...-mount-144732/

Here is my Surefire (had to shrink photo)

Default colors

Personally, I'm not a big fan of the white paint and maroon/purple interior. So to start making it my own Jeep, it needed some colors. Black spray painted rims, black caliber paint on calibers and drums, spray on bedliner to the outer trim.

And my wife designed some zombie themed stenciling for the back.

Also stole the ALICE/MOLLE Storage project idea. Here's the original thread. https://www.cherokeeforum.com/f67/al...roject-146708/

I bought the roll of webbing from Amazon and some small nuts and bolts from Ace Hardware. Just need to make more rows and find more of my extra MOLLE pouches.

Good to know that there a few people getting ready for something to go down. Reading the Zombie Survival Guide was definitely a big help for me.

Haha, it's all been done before. No need for citations.

That's good to know, if only we had a place to discuss such zombie topics...

By the way, I was born and raised in CT before the Army sent me to NY.
