    Default first XJ, gonna make it last forever

    Howdy-- just got a 96 Cherokee Country 4wd 4.0 about a month ago. I'd been looking for something easy to work on, capable, and not too big. I've had a lot of temporary vehicles before, but this is the one i take care of and make mine!

    Working on the basics first (go-- engine, stop-- brakes, straight-- alignment) then the fun stuff. Needs a lift for sure, 2-3" im thinking.


    Glad to be here

    Welcome to the site! Mighty fine looking xj, although I might be a bit biased because it looks like my 92 Laredo when i got it. Looking forward to seeing it grow!
