That's what I was planning on doing. Except some black on front and rear fenders. Did you use rustolium?

Backstory

I have wanted a Cherokee for about five years and really wanted one as my first car, but my grandfather gave me his truck(1999 GMC Sierra 2 door) so I didn't complain. Then I got tired of paying for so I traded with my dad for a 2003 Honda Civic. During this entire time my neighbor across the street had a Cherokee that I always liked but didn't really want because it was red and also I wanted a 97+ due to the interior being in my opinion better. But one day he got a new vehicle and he was going to take this jeep to the junk yard and I told him that I would buy in instead, so I bought it for cheap!!!

The bad




Rust!!





There were also a few holes in the floor, one of them was above the exhaust were the heat ruined the floor.

Also it needed a radiator, exhaust had a hole in the muffler, needed 2 tires, steering box had a crack, bent front bumper due to deer, torn seat,but over all not to bad and allowed for up grades.

Specs
It has the 8.25 rear axle,4.0 liter, power doors, power windows(I wanted manual for easier doorlees mod), 172000 miles, 4x4, automatic and other standard Cherokee items.

Yes. I was also going to do the black on the fenders but I ended up buying the fender flares and didn't paint the fenders. The black on the bottom is dupicolors Bedliner.

damn, you got a great deal, if you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay? I got mine for $1000 and it had 230k and all is rust. Also my first car/jeep. Yea, I too originally like the newer style interior and look but now that I have this one, it's really growing on me. Also like the simplicity. Not a whole bunch of computers and wiring.

Sure, the person I bought it from wanted to get 500$ but when he found out that I wanted it he sold it to me for 200$. It is probably one of the best deal I will every get in my life and I feel some what bad for giving him such little money but I told him that it was worth more but he would one take the 200$

Interior

When the interior was taken apart I felt like it was a good time to do speakers so I ran all new speaker wires, rca cables, 4 gauge wire, and a distribution block to run multiple amps. I tried to stay with one brand and I have used kenwood speakers and amps before and was impressed for the money. So 5.25 speakers where put in the rear hatch and speaker pod and 6.5 compontes in the front doors. There are kenwood speaker amps under the front seats.

The stereo was in the need of a subwoofer so I took the jl 12 out of my car and put it in the jeep on a 500rms alpine amp. But one day I decided I need more so I bought 2 focal 12s on sale at crutchfield. Sound great but took up a lot of space and decided I wanted My space back and built a box for a type r 8 and made a storage box



Jl w1v3-2. Great subwoofer, strong bass and shallow mounting depth





Storage box





It doesn't look the best but it allows the bass to not reflect of a wall right infront of the subwoofer and also allows the amp some air. I was very impressed by the type r 8 as in it is still very strong sub and is so small.

As in most of the jeeps this age the headliner was saging( the previous owner ripped it out) so a new one went in
