Here is the latest project and daily driver for now. It is a 1999 with 145K miles.
Picked up for two grand and runs/drives perfectly.

This is my third Cherokee and the plans for this are fairly simple:

3.5 Inch Rubicon Express
31" General Grabber AT 2

More will be added as we go!

Picture of first jeep, bought one in high school with 120K, sold it 5 years later with about 200K miles. Should have never gotten rid of it.

I always thought those ould be nice tires. I ended up with Mastercraft Courser AXTs, which i like a lot, but i might still get a set of those when it comes time for new ones.

I thought about going with those for awhile, I just wish you could get a different color than red. Seem to be nice and a very popular tire though!
