    XJ and offroad teardrop

    She loved the first one so much you replicated it! Nice Work. I'm down in Beckley and after going from XJ to JKU, i'm back looking for an XJ again. Prices are really climbing for rust free decent mileage. Unfortunately I don't have the time or fab skills to take on a rebuild like yours...

    Think I saw the new JL...and pickup version today

    Definitely not JL pickups under there, but that first one certainly screams jeep and it may be the tarp, but the front grill does appear to have have the rumored "more angle/steamline" grill and windshield edit: What is that above the axle? edit 2: Electric motor for the rumored hybrid?

    What did you do to your Expo Jeep today?

    I upped my mall crawler game. Installed a metal mesh grill to protect my poor radiator condenser that took a major beating this winter and installed a Led light bar I had at the house left over from my XJ. If anyone thinks the headlights are bad on a JKU, just drive a original Cherokee and...

    First Jeep

    JKUR hard rock also has the winch ready bumper. I must say I'm jealous of the rubicon. I picked up my sport with 3.73 and limited slip a couple of months ago. I love it but still can't stop thinking about a rubicon. Still on the fence on modifying this one or planning on trading it in in a...

    Utah Expedition 2015

    I dream of a trip like this. Utah is definitely #1 on my short list for trips once kids are older (currently 3 and -1month). Great report! (and congrats)

    JKU Question

    Everything is relative right? I came from a 98 Cherokee with 3.5" of lift on 31s. I had to keep it floored and would constantly shift between 3rd and 4th to maintain 70mph up hills and mountains and even gently sloping. I had a good 1" of play left/right in the wheel before any steering...

    Not today, but earlier in the week I picked up a 2016 JKU. This will be replacing my 98XJ. New Job + longer commute = treat yo self.

    2017 JEEP WRANGLER PICKUP TRUCK....probably....possibly...maybe...

    I picked up a 2016 JKU to replace my 98 XJ a few days after this announcement. With Fiat/Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge track record lately, I have VERY little faith in the first year, or 2 or even 3 of this new body style. I have a feeling we will be seeing a LOT of issues and recalls.

    Post Pic's of your Jeep

    I've seen several photos at the K. Tunnel. Been really wanting to make a trip up there. (can't believe I haven't been anywhere since I got new tires, these are long gone)

    Jeep Renegade and its competitors

    ^ my problem with these "tests" is exactly what you said. These trails are picked by jeep and really from watching the video I'm pretty sure any awd vehicle could of tackled that trail and even a fwd that you don't mind to bang up a bit.

    Renegade concept at Detroit Auto Show

    The renegade looks ok, its biggest fault is its built on the fiat 500L platform. Jeeps quality and reliability has fallen off a cliff. As seen by the first fiatjeep cherokee. That thing has had issue after issue and failure after failure. I don't expect this to be much different.

    What did you do to your Expo Jeep today?

    It's too cold and 2' of snow outside. I dropped the XJ off at the local HS tech school to replace my radiator and power steering gear. I went through a jug and half of antifreeze in the last 2 weeks. I really need a garage. As soon as it warms up I'm doing all the front u joints.

    C.Shontz 2001 Jeep Cherokee (Progress)

    Wow. What a labor of love. With how often people go through vehicles, it is amazing reading through this 10 year build. Has given me a new respect for my progress. I'm only at 3 months of ownership of my XJ and have already lifted it and talk daily of wanting a jku. Your thread has changed...
