Default 1998 Jeep Cherokee XJ-lifted,locked,manual trans - SOLD

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4x4
150,000 miles
Power everything
Mirrors (heated)
Aftermarket radio w/ aux input
The Good

Doesn't burn oil or even leak anything surprisingly enough
New alternator ~200 miles ago
New upper radiator hose ~500 miles ago
New plugs/wires ~1000 miles ago
AX15 (5 spd manual)
Factory clutch replaced with Luk Gold Series ~1000 miles ago
New master/slave cylinder ~2000 miles ago
New fluid ~1500 miles ago
Replaced factory linkage with Novak Cable Shifter (No more stupid bushings wearing out)
New fluid ~1500 miles ago
HP D30 Front Axle
3.55 gears
Aussie Locker
C 8.25" 29 Spline Rear Axle
3.55 Gears
Aussie Locker
TNT Customs Y-Link Upgrade (Long Arms)
Stretched the front out ~2 in
Now uses a front driveshaft from a 4.0L/Auto trans XJ (much easier to find if you need to replace it)
~4.5" lift
Coil springs up front
Leafs and extended shackles out back
Braided Stainless brake line extensions front and rear.
35x10.5R15 KM2's
4 (60% tread) on ProComp 7069 15x8 aluminum wheels
Brand new spare on Ultra 050/051 15x8 aluminum wheel (never mounted)
Grand Cherokee seats up front
New front rotors, pads, and calipers ~500 miles ago
Spare HP D30 with 3.07 gears
Good housing, shafts, knuckles, carrier and yoke for spares

The Bad (depending on how you look at it)

Gas Tank Relocation
It is a work in progress and will be continually cleaned up until the jeep sells
Rear axle now has room for a stretch
New location makes fuel pumps/filters much easier
Rear Windows replaced with plexiglass
Won't shatter if you bump a tree (still have the factory glass too, incase you want to put it back in)
Front fenders have been removed
I have them and they can be bolted back on anytime (they are already cut too)
Rear Fenders have been cut and folded
Its not the cleanest cut and fold ever, but the 35's clear no problem
All of the carpet has been removed
Door speakers are temperamental
After removing the t-case drop and installing the long arm kit it has vibes above ~30 mph
I donít even notice it wheeling, but a SYE would make it road worthy again.

It's not the prettiest thing in the world, but it is a whole heck of a lot of fun on the trails. I usually trailer it on longer trips, but I did drive it on the street to trails before the vibes started. It tracks straight and has no death wobble. I am asking $2800 obo.

Somebody make an offer, I need this gone. Text anytime or call after 5PM on weekdays for more info or pics 248-4two0-98three8.
