hello everyone, my girl friend gave me here jeep so we could have a 4 door vehicle for our little girl that should be here in January. this is my second cherokee. its in decent shape, not a lot of rust. its got 250,xxx miles on her.
downside is that its only 2wd =/. tomorrow im going to the junk yard to pull front and rear axles, drive shafts, a trans and transfer case and what not.
should be ordering a 3 inch lift kit and some 31s and wheel when ever i decide on what i want.

well after 2 days i finally got the trans and transfer case out. also snagged a sound bar and some seats, mine where nasty and the drivers side seat pan was broke in half. got fronts and back to match, also got some stock tweeters, foot well lights and cabin light with map lights. im gonna clean the axles up real good along with the trans and transfer case. should be ordering a lift here soon, not sure if i wanna do a 3 inch or 4.5.

Nice seats, I say go with a 4.5" lift, you have better options and more opportunities when you have a 4.5
