My Big Red Cherokee (named by my grand nephew)

by Mike
(Churchville Md. USA)


This is my second Jeep Cherokee. My first was a '79 limited edition Cherokee Chief (full-sized Jeep), and she had a nasty 351w V8 engine.


My new one, a gift from my mom, (I know sad right?) is a '98 Cherokee XJ ltd. 4.0 which is almost stock (added header, cold air intake, and 31/10.50/15 Goodyear tires)

So I have alot of wants for my rig. Plans are for a 4" lift kit, safari rack, 35" Interco M16 tires on bead-lock rims, 1.25" spacers,
upgraded suspension and steering, winch, bumper etc.

Most of this I plan to install and/or fabricate myself. I have been wheeling and mudding for about 15 years now and look forward to trying some rock crawling soon.


Larry's Comment: Nice looking XJ, Mike!

Keep us up-to-date on your mods for this rig, and shoot us more photos when you get done. Thanks.

Bead Lock Rims
by: Anonymous

Great looking XJ!

Be aware that bead lock type rims are not legal for highway use. Check your laws and manufacturer documentation. Because of how bead locks work, tire or bead failure during highway use can cause a serious accident which is why they aren't DOT legal. Just FYI.

Better to put the money into your XJ than a ticket.
