Default The W.I.P (Work In Progress)

Got this 1988 cherokee with 200k miles on it for a trade for a 1992 isuzu pickup. the girl i got it from needed something better on gas and i needed a 4wd cherokee lol. when i got it it wasn't in great shape. but everything mechanical was decent. the only things that were wrong was basic cherokee bs and a lil cosmetic damage on the front end. this is what came with it.

4.0l 6cyl
manual transmission
np231 t-case
dana 30/35
moonroof
black

What has been replaced:

new plugs, wires, rotor, cap

front end now has 1992 cherokee bumper, grill, and header panel as the junkyrd called it. i like this better b/c imo i think there is a lil too much chrome on the 88.

Right Rear taillight (because the previous owner backed it into a tree.)

headunit

VIBE speakers in the front (they sound great.)

got 6x9's in the back in boxes



SOON TO COME:

New window seals

rust repair (door bottoms, floor pans have some on them too =/ )

new tint

painting chrome black.

subs and amp

true dual exhaust

Eventually to come:

6.5 inch lift

35" 's mt

4 15" 's

VIBE Audio Space 3D in the front doors with custom pods. (3 speaker component set)

paint job

custom grill guard

skid plates

special rear diff cover (black metal?)

roof rack, thats where the spare is going to go.


heres the pics the 2nd day i got it at the beach:

Looks good. a simple and cheap mod.... if you arent going to put fender flares back on, the front fender can be trimmed by the sidemarker. basically the top of the front bumper back. opens it up alittle bit and adds a clean look.
