    You sir are a bastard. That is one sick sounding Jeep. HEMI 5.7?

    I had to put my Hemi in storage a year ago. I open this video once a week to listen to be baby. Thanks for making me home sick even a little more.

    Budda, beautiful Willys! I'm about to put a top on my '63 and need to go with a rear bike rack,
    can you post some pics of how/where exactly you attached your square receiver to the bumper/frame.

    Thnx, Goose

    Thanks!

    FTG, the original frame supports were missing when I got it, the original owner was going to install a 2nd fuel tank in the rear, so I just used some square tube to replace the triangular c-channel frame supports.
    then just retrofit a 2" receiver to the bolt on tow plate that was already on the frame, its a bit sloppy, but its strong.

    '87 MJ I used to have. Home-made sliders and rear bumper, I managed to fit 34x10.5 Swamper LTBs with 1.5" coil spacers, hockey puck bumpstops, and trimmed inner fenders.

    I miss it every single day

    That is a sweet set up with your XJ. I miss mine. Had over 325K miles but the floorboards were rusting out, had no airbags, and really wasn't safe to drive to work or off road anymore.

    Just picked this up this weekend. 01 Limited with 41k on the clock. Haven't had a jeep since I had a wrangler in high school, so I'm stoked!

    That is one sweet ride. Must have been sitting under a rock for a few years most of the Cherokees are in the 100K mileage range now. Been driving the same Cherokee for the past 13 years and don't see a replacement for it in the near future. Enjoy the find.

    99 Sahara TJ with 4" overall lift and 33" tires. We made a cheap and reliable hitch-mounted rack out of a $50 Harbor Freight cargo tray by bolting two truck bed fork mounts to it (can't find a pic) and it holds two 29ers nicely with room for front wheels and some gear.


    We mainly use this Yakima though.

    Rob1035, that is one clean Jeep. I had one I put 270,000 miles on and still didn't use any oil between changes. I still see it daily and the couple has taken it from KY to FL 4 times.

    Ditto. Same thing here. Mine just hit 160K.Enjoy it, it will last you at least 100K more if you take care of it!

    Heres my XJ during my move in May.... somewhere in Indiana.

    All Yakima stuff on the roof except for the cargo bag. Sorry i left the mtb behind to ride my favorite trail one last time before the official last move out date.

    Mechanic who changed the oil the day before said he had never seen a Cherokee squatt that much, even his own! Note I had two large dogs with me too, you can see the leashes in my hand. The jeep pulled like a champ and surpassed my expectations!

    Definitely a great find! My '97 ZJ is about to hit 163k. Still runs perfect, but 15 New England winters have taken their toll.

    And yeah, there's no replacement for an XJ!! If Jeep brought that back with no changes except for the Pentastar drivetrain, they'd make a killing.

    FatTireGoose, I have a PTO set up laying in my building that would look sweet on that thing. By the way the Jeep is a beauty.

    It is for sale. I have had two flatties and this was on the last one and I decided to keep it because you just don't see them any more. And I'm trying to thin out my Jeep parts collection.

    first try at posting a picture on here, so here goes.
    Before, headed on a Yak trip.
    <a href="http://s364.beta.photobucket.com/user/littlematt_97/library/" target="_blank"><img src="http://i364.photobucket.com/albums/oo81/littlematt_97/JPbefore.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"/></a>

    After, changed out to 33's and taking some lift off to make it a little more road friendly. I am turning the old girl back into my daily driver and the 4 cylinder doesn't like the 35's to well.

    Thanks for all the comments. Its just a plain jane Cherokee but I absolutely love it. No major plans, just keep it nice and drive it for as long as I can!

    A ton of great looking Jeeps in this thread for sure!

    Wow I didn't know this thread existed! I'm on my 8th Jeep currently. Here is the most recent picture from our Thanksgiving trip Jeeping to cut a Christmas tree in Monticello, Biking in Cortez, and Dinner in Moab on the way home.

    Edit:....
    Seems the stinger on jeeps is kinda like bar-emds on MTB's.....some guys hate em, some love em.... I haven't decided yet. Might be a good place to mount a bike to?....lol

    Yah, previous owner stuck it on there....in process of going through everything, fixed toe-in yesterday, and did oil change in motor and Trans so far.

    2008 JK with my Hardrock Disc (now stolen.....). 1.75" lift with 32" Falken Rocky Mt ATS, running AirAid cold air intake, MXRP cat-back exhaust, JVC in-dash with infinty 12" where the back seat used to be. Dad runs a 2013 Grand Cherokee, grandpa runs a 54 CJ-5. I've also had 93 ZJ, 92 XJ, and a 66 CJ-5 Tuxedo Park. Sure wish I still had that one....

    Cheers
