1979 Cherokee Chief WT - Bulldog67

Here is my Chief, nicknamed the Molotov after losing a fuel cap at an off road weekend camping with some buddies from the birtydastards jeep club so had to shove a tea towel down the filler pipe for a few days - not so good on inclines!

It has petrol 5.9 V8.

Greatest mod has been gettin a middle bench from a T5 volvo estate and framing it as a front bench seat as that means the Mrs and our 4 boys can use it for camping/laning trips - just had a great long weekend doing lanes on the IOW.

Work done in the 10 months since I have owned it:

6-7” SOA Suspension lift complete with hi-steer (ie flat top knuckles, caster realignment etc)
Heavy duty springs (new bushes front and rear)
Rough Country 6” extended shock
Rough Country steering damper
Warn winch
Heavy duty battery
Off road Phatchopperrod front winch bumper
Off road Phatchopperrod rear off road bumper
Front & rear replacement leather bench seats
3 x 3 point rear harnesses
CB & Stinger aerial
Upgraded CD player
35” BFG Muds x5
15x10 Black Steel wheels
Blood Red off road 30mm billet spacers
TJ Xenon 7” ‘unbreakable’ Flares (Front & Rear)
Razor Grill
Wire mesh radiator protection
Replacement (now original) indicator lenses F&R
HID headlight set up
Adjure 7” ‘ice skull’ headlights
Wire mesh headlight guards
Full front to back rewire
Cat 2 immobiliser
2 separate battery isolation switches (one key operated, one hidden)
Front axle rebuild
Front brake part rebuild
Edelbrock performance manifold
670 Truck Avenger Carb
HEI Distributor
Hedman headers
Front to back replacement exhaust system
New fuel tank and fuel lines
K&N air filter
Replacement side window

Next on the list is a brake hydroboost system and quick release steering hub and new steering wheel - have the parts so should be soon.

Only other thing I still have to do is a re-gear to 4.88 and a rear locker, I have the parts, just waiting for the right time as I have a mate who does it for me but I have to get axles off and schlep them over to him etc.

2000 Infinity QX4, 3.3L, MPFI, 4 speed auto, 2 speed Nissan tcase, Unibody, IFS front, 4 link rear solid axle with 255-70/16s


...Pay no attention to these heathen barbarians with their cutting torches and 8" lift kits!...
