I had been looking for a cherokee for awhile now....one of my biggest mistakes ever was selling the one I had before. Picked this up a few weeks ago , took it out for a little rabbit scouting yesterday. Taking her out tomorrow on her maiden hunting voyage.....hopefully I'll have some bloody action picsAttached File  th_1309633534_DSC01667b.jpg   64.24KB   18 downloads

It's near my house in the north county, there is a ton of scrappers up there but I would bet 99% stolen and the other 1% insurance fraud.

Miight just paint it desert tan or OD green but not any real camo pattern. Might just do a three inch lift, some 31s, roof rack, light bar....keep it simple yet practical.

It's Krylon tan. The lift is a 3-1/2" rubicon express lift with new springs in the rear not spacers. They added 1-3/4" spacer in the front to level it out and I am getting ready to switch out the front with a setof 5-1/2" springs so I can get rid of the spacers. Think about the lift you want, 3"might be it but it's better to spend the money once.

Rubicon Express is one of the kits I'm leaning towards....I heard they're no longer in business or going through some sort of reorganizing. Are you runnign a SYE? Did you have to mess with your track bar? Are you running 31s? Let me know if you wanna get rid of those 3.5" springs.

I went for the Skyjacker 4" lift on my old Cherokee and it provided a decent amount of lift but preserved a nice ride and good handling. No "buckboard" feel to it at all.Posted ImagePosted Image

They were bought by 4wheel parts and should be available by August. I will be selling the 3-1/2" spings for cheap but it may be a few weeks before I switch them out. I did run a SYE and it took care of most of the vibration I didn't replace the trac bar but will be doing that when I replace the springs. I have 31s now and may run 32s when they are finished. I also geared it with 456s.Here's the thread on the build of my jeep.http://www.californi...showtopic=15779

Well I'm in no hurry to lift mine, so if you don't mind giving me a holler when you get ready to sell those springs I would appreciate it.
