Re: 2 door Cherokee 01 with 25,000 miles... mild build for daughters first Jeep

Dayum, you find the coolest stuff. That '87 looks mint. And it is red. Must have had your name all over it.



Nice to see an update. This thread crossed my mind the other day and I was wondering what had happened.

Got the gas tank skid, receiver hitch & rear D44 installed with ARB 3" leaf springs.

Rubicon express shackles have good lean.

Thinking it's still going to be high in rear, even after bumper and subwoofer box are installed. If so will go back to stock shackles. Then resort to removing leaf (already removed overload) or getting custom springs made.

The DPG U bolt plate with bumpstop pucks is great idea keep tires outa fenders.

Yes, I kept drum brakes, I have done rear disc conversions before and e-brake has always been a future problem and never hold like a drum.








Front bumper cut and buckets made for frenching in 6" Rigid light bar on each side of license plate.



Yep, ordered the Metra kit for the double din Alpine I bought her for Christmas 2 years ago

Been searching for WJ steering wheel swap so could have audio controls, found couple threads, on actual wheel and clock spring... but nothing on audio controls.

I am grateful to see I am not entirely alone in that perspective.

A manual transmission really drives the point home.
