Default Spots 97 Low Mile build

I have been looking for a lowmile XJ for about 2 years. I'm up north so finding one that was rust free took a while, but I found one. Zero rust, 77,000 miles, no power windows or locks, but cruise and ac. This was the cleanest one I found in my 2 year search. It came with an unidentifide 3inch? lift and 31X10.50 General Grabbers on rock crushers. Here is how it looked when I picked it up.

I am going to do flat flares because the tires rub bad on turns. I am going to fix the lift and add arms and a shackle relocator kit. Install a winch bumper and 12,000lbs winch. Lockers, sway bar quick disconnects and led lights for now. I'm sure I will come up with more as I go.

Looks like a nice clean slate to start with.

Too much,but I was tired of looking!

I have a lot of parts on the way. RE Super Flex arms, OR-Fab front winch bumper. RI led lights. New headlights so I can actually see at night. JKS sway bar disconnects, RC steering stab, RC shackle relocation kit, 6 new bosch upgrade injectors, Bushwacker flat flares, and a spartan for the rear for starters.

some of the stuff arrived yeterday so I was a working boy today. To dark for pics so those will have to wait until tomorrow. I installed the arms, lights, bumper, winch, lights and front flares. I also installed a cabelas roof rack I had from my old 2 door Yukon. I am really liking how this is coming together.

Nope, Great lakes. Lots of snow and salt so most Cherokee's up here are see through!

Ran to the store to get the ingrediants to make my peach pie moonshine and decided to do some mall crawling. Every ramp had poles at the end except this one. It could go a lot farther, but the pole got in the way.
