Default The white Cherokee

I just want to say this will be my 3rd xj all work will be done by me.... however this is my first build thread and I'm gonna try to take as many pictures as possible i do work nights so most work will be done on off days or free time I'm also a parent and she comes first along with the fiance then my job then my hobbies .... With that said I'm gonna start my build now I like input and advise negative *comments are welcome also*
I have been looking for a while around cl and other places for a decent Cherokee meanwhile trying to sell my truck I was looking for 4 dr Cherokee stick or auto, *miles don't scare me " more so a bragging right then anything" my previous Cherokee had 230xxx and my grand Cherokee had around the same...... so a buddy of mine told me that his parents were going to try and sell there cherokee again " I had tried buying this around 2 years ago " so now I had something lined up to buy *so I**sold my 06 ram 2500 ... So I turned around and bought this the same day, it's a 92 white Cherokee 4dr sport off my buddy for 600 it has the 4.0, aw4, 231 , manual doors no options....

My plan of attack ...
Fix passenger side floor it's all rotted out
Exhaust needs work
4.5 rc lift*
33's*
Front & Rear bumpers with tire carrier*
Fold rear lower quarters
Undercoat bottom of doors
Trim front fenders*
Trim and fold rear wheel wells
Lincoln lock the rear*
Doorless
Homemade snorkel

When I'm all done cutting and fitting I will be taking it all back out, panel-bond every corner and crevice.... then I will go ahead and screw it all back down, then tack-weld, panel-bond the rest of it all in.... After all that's done I will be applying some her liner or undercoating
