Project Deja vu

Recommended Posts

I picked it up this morning and started to tear it apart because the interior is trashed, the PO used the interior as an ashtray and it has seen better days . I will be putting the Agate interior in and it was included in the purchase price of the Cherokee, I just have to go and pull the parts myself. 


As mentioned before it's really solid except for one spot ... the passenger front floor .

Looks WAY beter than mine I don't even see any rust and I know how it shows up on white.

I spent some time on it and did some quick bodywork to make it look better . I went through the Jeep and replaced the brakes , gave it an oil change , scrubbed the interior, put a new exhaust and O2 sensors on it for the next owner (whoever that will be ..)

Sold my original Cherokee last Saturday to the first person that came to look at it . It  was hard to see it go after having it for 16  years, but it had to be done ... 


I went today and grabbed the interior I'll be installing in my new Cherokee, after searching through a 100 XJs I found a limited interior in good shape . 


On a side note , I forgot how many more interior pieces a XJ had than an MJ ( I got my work cut out for me ) .

The never-ending rust fight. Looks like you are winning.   :beerchug:

For now lol. It was a lesson learned on the last XJ , I'm taking more steps to try to prevent / prolong the rust . I'll be using fluid film as I've seen good results using it on my DD MJ , I'll be happy to get 5 to 10 years out of it ( longer would be great )

That sub would be nice in an MJ spare under the bed too. You would really have to crank it up though when underway. 




I already have a Borla that provides the soundtrack from down there.

 Wow! I really dropped the ball on this thread. So I had 167,000 miles on it when I purchased it, now I'm at 215,000. 


 I didn't take any pictures when I did the rest of this.  I installed new leaf springs, shocks, magna flow exhaust, and it has basically been trouble free even to this day. 


Had a little mishap at work three weeks ago, they were spraying some safety yellow several places close to where I park and got yellow paint all over my Cherokee. I spent several days removing the yellow paint off of everything, what a feat that was.  A combination of Clay-bar, buffing ,having to take my roof rack off and re-spraying it black, another set of mirrors. Now I have it all taken off , they say they will never spray yellow paint again lol.


 So here's the reason I'm updating the thread, so far I've got about a year of collecting parts. Need to collect parts  for the fuel management and I'll be ready to install it .  I carry tools with me and it has become a bit anemic and tired.
