    Offroad Noob

    We just picked up this 1989 Jeep Cherokee 4.0L for $1,000 off of my old college roommate. It has been sitting for acouple years, the exhaust/intake manifold gasket leaks and the alternator doesn't charge. The paint is a bit rough I know but hardly any rust.


    Off the top of my head it's got:
    Rough Country 4.5" short arm lift w/ add a leafs & new leaf packs
    4.10 Gears front and rear
    Cooper 31x10.50's on 15x10 wheels
    JCR offroad rear bumper
    Homemade front bumper w/ KCs
    New valve cover
    New lifters
    Trak-loc rear end
    Diff guards
    Rubicon Express adjustable track bar
    JKS sway bar disconnects
    Cut fenders


    I know I'm forgetting some details right now.

    Someone ran it without oil pressure, it seized and stalled the engine. So I just primed the oil pump with a drill until I saw 60psi oil pressure. Fired it up, didn't and still doesn't have any engine noise other than a little lifter tick. I was amazed.
