Well, unfortunately my other Jeep, Red Riding Hood has been laid to rest...insurance totaled it after the run-in with the light pole.


Sooooo..... This is the replacement: 2001 Jeep Cherokee (XJ) it has 160k miles, runs great. Needs a few odds and ends but over all great shape. Here are some pictures and as i get settled in it ill post more pictures and build ideas. I am looking forward to this build!

Started gathering all the stuff for my dual battery setup... Got the battery, cable and terminals. Still need to get the solenoid and controller.

I am going to put it in the back. After reading forums about the under the hood mount it seems like people are having issues with the bracket bending the radiator mounts due to the weight. I probably just mount it in the rear cargo area.
