This is my 1992 Jeep Cherokee XJ Laredo.
From the front...Showin' Off the grille.
HERE ARE SOME MODS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE FRONT... 4.5" Rough Country Suspension Lift Rough Country Shocks, Coils, and Leafs Heavy Duty Control Arms JKS Adjustable Trackbar Skyjacker Hydro 7000 Steering Stabilizer JCR Off-Road Products Stage 1 Front Bumper H4 Xenon Conversion Diamond Cut Headlamps Clear Corner Lamps Revotec Euro Clear Front Signal Lamps Zactal Off-Road Safari Roof Rack 2 Hella 550 Driving Lamps (on bumper) 4 Hella 500 Off-Road Lamps (on rack) 2 Hella 500 Off-Road Lamps (will be mounted on the rear of the roof rack) Bushwacker Extended Cut-Out Fender Flares Tribal Hood and Side Graphics XJ Oval Decals Firestik CB Antenna Uniden CB (mounted to underside of dash)
An angle shot from the front showing the JCR Off-Road Bumper. As you can see, this style bumper dramatically increases ground clearance. It is also extremely strong, and offers shackle tabs. It's made completely of solid steel, 100x better than the stock bumper.
This is a close-up of the H4 Xenon Diamond Cut Conversion Headlamps. These lights are not true H.I.D. but they are the next best thing. They improved my night vision 100x over stock halogen lamps. Also shown are the Clear Corners and Clear front signal lamps.
In the rear I have theTaillight Corner Guards.
Also shown in my photos are the Bushwacker Cut-Out Fender Flares. Kinda expensive, but serve a good purpose. Not only do they allow you to fit larger tires, but they protect the sides of the vehicle from rocks and debris flying off the tires (and not to mention the vehicles behind ya on the road to).
You've probably noticed my 6' Firestik Antenna. I chose this one because it's very flexible so now I won't have to worry about it being broke off. I can zip tie it to the rack if needed. The CB I have is a Uniden and it's mounted to the lower dash to the right of the console.
If you look closely, you can see the dual back-up lights I mounted where the license plate is. The lights and license plate holder are actually all one piece, and it fits in the spot as if it was stock. You can't tell it's an aftermarket add-on. The reason the original opening for the license plate is large is for european plates.
Here is a close up of the lights. Surprisingly the lights came from a vehicle at the salvage yard. I got the idea when I was browsing for different back-up lights to mount to the back. I noticed these lights and it looked like a sure fit...and sure enough it was!!!
CAN YOU GUESS WHAT VEHICLE THE LIGHTS CAME OFF?
In this picture you can clearly see how the Bushwacker Fender Flares extend out over the tires. They really do help out a lot. I also wanted to point out my roof rack. It may not be some high-end $600.00 roof rack, but it serves its purpose. It's actually quite durable and can hold 6 lights (4 in front, 2 in rear), an axe, shovel, a High-Lift jack, and full-size spare tire.
I plan on adding a spare here within a couple weeks. I purchased a rim off eBay,(it's a black steel Rock Krawler wheel) and then I'll get the same size tire and brand mounted to it.
Another shot from the front, but this shows the suspension better. I have the 4.5" Rough Country Suspension Lift. Complete with shocks, coils, and full leafs. I know a lot of off-roaders dislike Rough Country, but perhaps that's only because it's an inexpensive lift and they feel it can't perform. You should try it...you'd be surprised. I know it may not be the best, but it certainly suits my needs. I actually find this lift to be extremely dependable. It can handle any terrain I tackle. I am very pleased and quite frankly, I would buy Rough Country again.
"MOST EXPENSIVE ISN'T ALWAYS THE BEST" I don't buy parts to increase my social standings. I buy what I need to suit me and my needs. I could have gone with a Rubicon Express kit, but I don't spend every day of the week in the mud.
I like this shot because it shows how much the Bushwacker Fender Flares open up the wheel wells. I had the lift and tires installed before deciding on doing the flares. I have 32x11.50's on the Jeep now, but since adding the flares, I could clearly fit 33's. I am fine with the 32's for now.
