1979 Jeep Cherokee Chief
360/T18/D20
D44's front/rear

I already have 285/75/r16 (33x11.5) Trxus M/T tires on 16x8 Soft 8's for it. They will actually fit now, but I'd tear them up off-road. The lift is coming... Those are 31x10.5's on it now.

It is in OK shape with a replaced floor, but I cannot wait to take it off-road.

Nice Jeep!

I saw a great show on Truck TV on Spike about restoring an old cherokee and making into a nice offroad truck. They called it the Bargain Beater, and most of the parts were supplied by BJs Offroad, here are the photos/information on it. I love what they did with the front grill.

Those grilles, called "rhino" grilles, were $4-=$50 before that show. They go for $200 now!!
