Default THE Start of THE DIESEASE

So im new to the jeep world and love it. I picked u this 1996 cherokee sport, for really cheap $350 buck!!!!!!!. She needs some love but will make a great wheeling rig ( wont care about dents and scratches).

She runs great for the most part, Needs some love but thats ok for $350 bucks

1996 cherokee
5 speed
4.0 engine
216,000 Miles

Clean Interior,
Body is decent
UNDERCARRIGE HAS SOME ROTTTTTTT

I use the jeep as a daily driver right now and she runs great, does not use any fluids and pulls strong! ( minus exhause leak, clutch issiue, Blown suspension all the way around, and some rusty break lines)

My plans are to cut the fenders, Make some steel Bumpers, Give her a tune up, Lift her 4.5 inches and slap some 33s or mabe 35s on her and WHEEL her Hard

Default Rough Country

So i just got my Lift kit in the mail (Thank you UPS) I went with a 4.5 inch Rough country, I went with new Leaf packs in the rear due to sagging old springs, I am awaiting some new parts before i strart the lift ( new front & rear swaybar bushigs, rear leaf shackels and upper control are bushings) I dont want to disable the jeep for to long so i will wait untill i get all parts before the Install. Any other parts you can think of replacing while im under there?

Pics will come tomorro after i open the boxes

Ditch the rear sway bar its worthless! Some jeeps even came without them from t he factory!
Keep your front but ditch the rear!
