Default New XJ From Portland, OR

Hi Guys,

I'm new to this forum! I've got a 2001 Jeep Cherokee XJ (4DR) that I'm slowly, but surely modding. Next week some Bushwacker Cut-Out Flares will be going on and some 1.25" spidertrax spacers. In early August, I will be adding Warrior Products front/rear bumpers.

There is tons of stuff on my list, but those are the most immediate upgrades to come. I'm sure I'll get a build thread going once I start installing the fenders and take some pics.

Eventually I want to run the RE 5.5" LA Kit, Currie Steering, SYE, Motor Mounts, V8 ZJ Tie Rod, Dodge Neon Injectors, and more. Those come though as the $ comes . I'm trying to limit myself to 1-2 Jeep Parts per month, so this will be a pretty slow build.

Here is a pic of my Jeep in it's current form:



I look forward to everyone's advice, tips, and cool ideas for my Jeep! Thanks!

Thanks! The Bushwacker Flares came in early (this morning). Hopefully, I will get them installed this weekend.

They didn't add as much clearance in the front as I would have liked. I'm a huge fan of the rear's though. When I break this set (which will likely happen up front), I will move to some steel rusty's or something.

Next mods (coming next week/weekend):
Warrior Products Front Bumper w/ Brush Guard & D-Rings
Maintenance Stuff (greasing, fluids, etc.)
Maybe plasti-dip the emblems black if I get bored
Clean off that rust in the rear 1/4 panels

Edit: In that photo of the new flares, I also added 1.25" Spidertrax spacers on all 4 wheels.
