Alright guys it is time for ANOTHER build. After struggling with many many MANY issues with my first XJ I want to give it another shot. Truth is I really enjoyed it despite all the trouble.

So here it is! I have just purchased a 1995 Jeep Cherokee for a whopping $400. Best part is that it runs and drives. Previous owner could not drive due to the front driveshaft binding. New U-Joints and Double Cardone rebuild kit and its 4WD again.

On the bucket list we have a lot, some of which I have already acquired.

Already Acquired:
Rubicon Express 7.5" Lift
35" Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ P3's
15x10 Pro Comp Steel Wheels -44 Offset
Smittybilt XRC High Clearance Bumper

To Do List:
Repaint- Possibly Linexd White
Needs Headliner
Interior Trim Panels
Needs Heater Core (Will also replace whole dash assembly if i can find one in decent shape. Will be converting interior to black/grey, I know its a lot of work)
Fox Racing Shocks
JCR or Smittybilt Rear Tire Carrier
Opt 7 50" and 20" light bar
Twisted Pro All Terrain Roof Rack with Opt 7 Light Cubes
JCR Offroad 1 Ton Under the Knuckle Steering
JCR Offroad Rear Quarter Panel Armor w/ Taillights which i also already have
Tomken OR Warrior Tube Doors
Due to some crackheads trying to steal my catalytic converter, will have to redo the exhaust system (would love to hear input on this/recommendations)
Bushwacker Fender Flares- Previous owner hacked the rear quarter panels up and cut through the pinch weld.
Rough Country A-Pillar Light Mounts
Rough Country SYE Kit
Rough Country Driveshaft (I know I'll Probably get crap for this but ran it in my old xj and it worked great)
Need a CB(taking recommendations as well)


Let me know what y'all think! Here are some before photos, will keep y'all Updated as I make progress!!

UPDATE

Lift Kit is finished!! Rubicon Express 5.5” SA Kit(will be upgrading to LA) with Fox 2.0 Smooth Body Shocks. Didn’t go with 7.5” as it barely clears the garage now! 35” Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ P3’s. Also got a set of Pro Comp Steel Wheels for a killer deal. 4WheelParts has some in the Birmingham, Al location, a customer sent them back because a box got left in the rain! Ha! Just ordered JCR 1 Ton Steering! Will be re gearing soon, after the SYE and new driveshaft are installed! Will continue to update!

Is that a train horn ? I don't know if you can get enough clearance to run those tires . it looks close in the rear . I'm running 31's on a 4.5 lift and I rub at times but I have stock body I not cut or changed the flairs yet .

You have a good eye! Lol Yes those are a set of the train horns from horn blaster, Outlaw series. Won’t clear my garage door if I have them mounted. I will have to trim a good bit off the front, but with proper bump stops I shouldn’t rub. Previous owner already lobbed off the rear a good bit and through the pinch weld. Will have to weld it back up and repaint. Will be adding bushwackers in the future!
