Year: 1989 Laredo
Model: Cherokee
Engine: 4.0 L 6 Renix
Default Grey in the Gills, Peep

Of the family fleet, this one is completely mine (nobody else will drive it?), well the dog loves to ride along.
3.5 inch Franken lift on 31's. Full home fab floors, rock rails, roof rack with silverstar lighting, fogs, vents, armoured diffs, stainless used frequently in the fabs, and multiple basic component replacements over the years. Original drive train of D30, D35 non clip, 4.0L, AW4, supported by trans cooler. Maintenace, all the time and on schedule, fluids, bearings, seals, etc, and regular oil/filter for the Renix.
Still goin daily, 735757 Km and counting. When I hit the million I expect Chrysler to pony up with a fresh one, ha, sure,when dogs fly, lolololol.
Currently needs another freshening on the body panels. I have a couple spare XJ's for parts and I have a plan.
Another door set, converting with PMEngineering stainless moljinir armor panels (my evening home fab again) for the doors and quarters. Will incorporate tube and plate fender flares and fresh front and rear bumpers (and that 12K winch sittin on the shelf). As with all Peep projects, it's going to take a while. Check back with me next year.
I expect to have the fresh armor in place as she rolls 800.
In the interim keepin an eye out to pick up drive train replacements, it all won't last forever.
Till then, enjoy your daily XJ!

I do not see a roof rack did you remove it or did it ever have one on it? Funny how that jumped out at me like that, don't know why guess because the XJ looks so clean and retail red.
