I recent added another project to my list as if the Bug didn't already take up my extra time and money... But I felt the need for an extra vehicle and something I can take up in to the mountains. I live right at the base of the mountains so the closest trail is right at the top of my street (about 1/16 of a mile). Makes it very convenient. I missed my off-roading days and now I can do it again!
So I got a 99 Cherokee this time around. This is now the 4th Cherokee I have owned. My last Jeep was a Grand Cherokee which I sold about a year ago. This one is a manual 5-speed 2wd. Yes I said 2wd. But not for long. I have already purchased pretty much everything to make it 4wd. I decided to keep it a manual as well. It is just so hard to find a clean 4wd that I had to go 2wd. I got one that is in ok condition. Clean body besides the front which was an easy fix. Carpet and seats were nasty. The underside is spotless like it has never been off road (thats the hard part to find in a 4wd). So over the past few weeks I have been "restoring" it. It is starting to look like a new vehicle again! The lift will come after I am done making it new again.
New seats and carpet installed. I also had to put a new front end on it. The PO decided to rear end someone in it. Still need to install the stereo and finish putting back together the interior. Lots more to go but its a good start.
So lets see what kind of Jeeps you guys have and what you have done to them!
