Default HI-HO Silver 2000 Cherokee

short and sweet
So heres what i started with
2000 Cherokee Classic
180,xxx miles



Then came 3.5 super ride with 2inch aals




So i hated the ride of aals just couldnt stand them for some reason so this summer i saved up money to get the upper control arms/rims&tires/and the random stuff and came up with this






I know its short and sweet just kept forgetting the camera
So what yall think?
