I trimmed off the brackets on my 1/4 panel the other day. I like the look of it now...I think for right now Im going to add the bumper caps off the 84-96 Cherokees until I decide what bumper to get. After I trimmed it, I was feeling around the 1/4 panels and on the driver side I found something really odd.

Inside the 1/4 I found this black bag...I opened it up and found this insulation stuff. Anyone have any idea what this is?

I would have crapped myself if I would have found a black bag hidden in my quarter panels :D

That sucks. The street value on that insulation is gonna be crap and it's certain to not smoke well. :D

Haha, I thought the same thing...black bag, hidden in 1/4's, DC is up to something sneaky. The driver side had a hole at the botton and I checked around to see what was in there and sure enough I had a black bag. The passenger side doesn't have a hole so I wouldn't know if there is one in there or not. Its a 98 btw.

Wouldn't there be a better way to do that? How about drain holes? I wonder if the 84-96's have the same thing.

neither my 95 or my 87 had the "black bag" mod. I'm not sure about the rest of mine...they still have all the interior pannels and carpet.

I hope they dont rust out now lol. Did you guys leave em in your Jeep and in the black bag or did the curiosity kill the grease monkey?

I found mine while grinding away, and realized a large amount of smoke shooting out of the breather holes in the inside. I pulled the pannel back and the bag of coke was flamin away, got pretty high from all the fumes!

Try using Herculiner. Even with a full gas mask on, my friends were asking if I was on crack the next day in school. I could even tell I was acting strange.

I pulled mine out. Some lady had just bought a used car not too long before and she got searched on the way into base and the Dog alerted on her car. She was flipping out. It was funny we got lots of calls for us to search their for them. Didn't get anymore hits though.
But the drug thing was definitely on the top of my worry list when I saw bags hidden in the back!
