Default Project update

Bought this jeep for 1000 bucks. Its a 98 cherokee with 254,000 miles, Has new radiator,starter,shocks and brakes. All that is done to it right now is rims and tires and the fenders trimmed. Let me know what ya think

When i first got it





And now. I go those rims and tires for free. My buddy got new rims and tires for his wrangler so he gave me these and all he wanted was one of my old tires for a spare

Looks good. But it also looks like you have a busted rear shock!

Thanks for the feedback. And the shock isnt busted just the previous owner who changed the shocks never mounter that one shock to the body. He just mounted it to the axle. But i got it mounted in the right spot now. Does anybody have a right up on how to take off the trim that is on the doors?

All you need to get off that body molding is a heat gun. Apply heat and the glue melts and it pulls right off. Then you can use some Goof Off or Goo Gone to get rid of the sticky mess underneath it.

don't try flexing it like that unless you don't car about your fenders or what it will do to the tires.
