    El Cheapo Jeep WJ Build-ish.

    I realize it’s been awhile since I have updated this thread. Finally got a chance to test the WJ out. Random meeting with the Bowling Green Jeep Owners Club led to a night ride at a place near Mammoth Cave called Blue Holler Off Road Park. The pics aren’t great since it was dark, but I’ll post...

    2001 Grand Cherokee Laredo

    Since I moved, my commute is 10 miles, I drive it every 3rd day. I'll toss it on a lift this week and grease it up.

    2001 Grand Cherokee Laredo

    Looks like you found my build thread. The lack of use, and being stored in Ohio in subzero temps. Things just creak and squeak more.

    Yes they do. I'm actually going that route once I get the new PS pump and window regulator. 2 months in the barn while I relocated took its toll.

    Project Bluenose: 2000 Jeep Cherokee

    To the OP, I am a Bluenose, so I'm guessing you wear dolphins on your chest. I run a Jeep dealership, and have a huge parts network. If I have it, its yours at cost. XJ will always be (in my opinion) the cheapest and nearly best platform to build. Any questions about your repair, hit me up. I...

    2001 Grand Cherokee Laredo

    I know this is old, but have you seen hk off road Gatekeeper? Protects the lower radiator support, works with factory bumpers. Just a different line of thinking.

    Absolutely, my man. My name is Scott, and anything you need, let me know.

    It's actually finished, but they don't want to release it until morning, because they want to crank it over nd make sure they're good to go after a few heat cycles. I'll have the Service Advisor call when she's ready to release it. She said your pads are about done.

    I'll go check on it

    El Cheapo Jeep WJ Build-ish.

    Do I have your truck here? My only concern is, I leave here every Saturday and go back to the frigid North until Tuesday. I have two cars here, so no worries, but a more local spot would be a better idea until I properly shake this thing down. It's not seen dirt yet since being back together...

    I've never been. Isn't that a couple hours out? What day or days are you thinking? Sat and Sun?

    So, it's been awhile since I updated, so here's what's happened. For a few weeks...not a thing. Then, a pair of WJ trade-ins came in, and they were used up turds, and I decided to pillage them like the good pirate I used to be. One was a Limited, with 300k miles, but the AC worked. So, Friday...

    Were you here for service or sales? My office is in the Mitsubishi building, but I work for corporate these days. I did work for Dodge for about 6 months prior.

    I work for Martin, Tuesday through Saturday. I'm sort of able to do what I want, whenever at this point.

    Pre Build Question: 89 Jeep XJ Axle/Locker Combos

    Better solution since your XJ has leaf springs is a Ford 8.8 from an Explorer. Endless gear options, strong, leaf sprung from 90-94, same bolt pattern (5x4.5) and nearly identical track width as the Dana 35.

    Are you using the Ram for off-road? Let's set something up for the next few weeks. My buddy has a Wrangler that's fairly well equipped that needs the tire shine muddied up some.

    B&J's is the only one I've heard of. But I hear they have all night access

    Thank you! I really appreciate that. That headliner is cool! One of my sales guys has a friend who does shirt printing on the side, so we are seeing what we can do. May do all 44 Jeep Badge of Honor trail topo maps on it. I'm new to the area. Any decent wheeling spots nearby?

    That would be freaking dope. Need fabric and someone who can print that.

    I'm thinking the digital camo pattern that the Navy uses, since once upon a time I was a sailor. But, I really hate camo. So, I'm conflicted.
