Long overdue introduction

I have been a member here for some time but have never formaly introduced myself. My name is Craig and I live in Las vegas. Enough about me....

I picked up a '77 Cherokee w/t back in october. It was running at the time. Original plans were to throw on a lift kit and drive it "as is" while doing small upgrades as I had time and money. Long story short... The more I took apart,... the more I took apart. Understand? Now its no longer driveable. And I am still taking apart!

Thank you to everyone one here for you help. I am sure I will be asking for more of it in the future. And if there is any way I can return the favore I will try my best to contribute.


I know, You want pics. They are in reverse order for some reason. (newest first, oldest last)

"welcome" nice cherokee for sure

I started down that road fall 05. after watching the truck sit through the summer in 06 (i only get to drive it in the summer anyway) I cracked and put it back together. I decided to actually stick to the "little fixes" idea... it just kills me to see my J10 sit.

Thay are 33x12.5x15 But they are not going to stay. I HATE the wheels that are on it, so they are gonna have to go. I am planning to go with 35'' BFG mud terrains mounted on 15x10 rockcrawler series 51. But so many other parts to buy and work to do before that becomes an issue.

Thanks again for all the help and the compliments. If any of you are ever in Vegas give me a shout. Maybe we could have a few beers and talk FSJ's.
