  • Ahi barely matters.Ahi barely matters.
So i traded my sIR for a 96 Cherokee

All in all im very happy with the trade, the jeep has no rust and only 173 000 kms.
I can and have done some roadtrips and camping in it which wasn't possibe with the civic.

Current plans for the jeep are:
-Oil Change
-Leveling kit (did a lift instead)
-Lightbar
-Cupholders (this model didn't come with any but i order some on ebay lmao)
-Make the interior more cozy and better for sleeping in (its winter now so ill do this is summer)

I am open to any mod suggestions because i don't really know exactly what i want to do to it  :baconator:

Here's some pics:

                        Pretty big update.

                        I have done quite a few things and many more to do.

                        3 inch rough country lift (new shocks,springs,leaf pack and control arms)
                        31 inch duratracs
                        got some lightbars just waiting on wires
                        2 inch wheel spacers (in mail)
                        installed a new thermostat and did a coolant flush
                        did a couple oil changes
                        installed an off brank roof basket

                                Before I traded the kid put in a new deck and new speakers all around. Surprisingly really good audio quality. There's a little cubby in the rear and normally people put I little sub there. Still thinking if I want to do a sub or storage

                                  I'll post some interior photos soon.

                                  Debating if I want to do some drawers for the rear cargo and keep some recovery gear, emergency stuff etc.

                                              Yes those are the style I'd like, mainly waiting for someone local to have a set for sale

                                                These are nice but I don't need beadlockers yet, I don't do that crazy of wheeling.
