So I'm deciding that I am gonna make a build thread on my 99 Cherokee Classic. It will be a slow build as I am a med student on a pre schoolers budget, but it will be done eventually ( I hope )


Well, I might as well start at the beginning....
I saw this at my local JY and I couldnt resist..

Now for the build..

My grandfather restores classic cars for a hobby and has pretty much any thing a person could need to work on a car, and if he doesnt have it, he will fab it up.

we ended up straightening the original parts(bumper and fender) and used them instead of the parts I pulled at the JY

I found this to be quite humorous. I spent a total of $318 on parts and ended up only using the header panel, which was $225 with everything. harness, lights etc..

In February of '11, I bought these since I hadn't put the lift on yet do to school and time. These are brand new up country packs that I got for $77 total. I had a $250 gift certificate to Quadratec, so I only spent the $77 outta my pocket
The start of a Beautiful friendship-172677_10150120629327579_548947578_6520477_6713449_o.jpg

about 20 mins of my time and I added the AAl's to the new packs. I "should" get around 4" of lift since the up country packs add 1"
