Default Project 97 XJ..

Well, I got a new Jeep, and I am not sure what I want to name the build thread, so it will be the same name as my 1st build, but version 2.0..

Just picked this up the other night for $1000 it is a 1997 cherokee with 4.0 and 5 speed man. trans. The guy threw on a bunch of new parts and sensors. It has high miles on it, but hey its a toy, so I am not too worried about the mileage. It has a budget boost lift on it (3" springs up front, and 2.5" shackles in the rear with flat leafs) it has brand new 30x9.5 tires on it with eagle alloy wheels painted black. It just had a brand new clutch installed as well as other transmission parts replaced. It has rust, and dents, but the under side is actually real clean. My plans are to build it like my last XJ, but maybe a bit bigger and better..

I have started removing the brackets for the flares (no flares were on it when i got it) and cutting and folding the fenders. It will probably be a slower build, but hey it should be fun

Pics from the night I brought it home..
