Hey guys,

over the past couple months i've purchased a 2000 Jeep Cherokee XJ 4 door 4.0L truck originally from west virginia. Starting out as plans to be a college daily driver, this truck has quickly turned into a trail-rig in progress! We started off by ordering up a 6.5" Long Arm Rough Country lift kit, JB conversions super short slip yoke eliminator, 33x10.50x15 BFGoodrich M/T KM2's and 15x7 Method Racing wheels. Next were the lmp front bumper with custom prerunner bars.

The truck should be done by April, and debut for the MN4WDA spring convention in Appleton.

Until then, the truck has plans for:
front and rear ARB air lockers
Warn 9,000 lb winch
Warn Dana 30 Hub conversion kit

let me know what you think!

The xj should work nicely at the convention.
Less than three months and a lot of assembly to go.

Great start, thanks for the post. Still plan to dual purpose as a daily driver?

As of now i plan on driving the truck to college once its done and use it off road...but the truck will get stored in the winters, the mag-chloride they pour on the roads is absolutely brutal.
