    Its about a 1200 pound shift when you consider removing the engine from the front and placing it in the back. The engine will get a complete rebuild with Edelbrock Performer intake, etc. Can't wait to head down to Z&M's to see it next week. Will get more pics then. Maybe new springs and shocks after we see how it sits when the engine is installed. The Jeep only has 41,176 original miles (one owner).

    33" might be a bit big for what I am after. Prob 30X9.5 or 31X10.5 will be my choice. I do like the big donuts, but looking for more of a stock appearance for this particular Jeep. Thanks!

    Feb 13, 2012 Finally Visited the Dusty Bird

    Well this past weekend I got to see the Bird with my own eyes down in OH, at Z & M Jeeps. This GE is as dry as toast. I went all over it and it is totally rust free. The engine is out and is presently being rebuilt with Edelbrock performance parts. The interior has been ravaged from the sand, sun and wind. It sat outside with the rear window down for almost 4 years in the AZ sun/heat. The good news is I have found the exact Levi Tan interior to replace mine with.
    Here is the Jeep as it sits in the shop currently:

    May 17, 2011

    Well I finally had a chance to get down to Z&M Jeeps in Maumee, OH to get working on the interior of this Jeep. I have never seen so much dust inside a vehicle. I removed bins of extra parts from the interior, as well as most of the carpet, seats, console, door panels, etc. Here are a few pics during the first stage of the clean up. Once the Cherokee is clean it will be getting a new carpet kit, seats out of another Golden Eagle which are very nice for original seats, a better dash pad top, and a new headliner. We will be applying Dynamat on all the interior surfaces as well. This will reduce road noise greatly.

    Put that stuff EVERYWHERE!!! It makes a huge difference, we did an Explorer at work and thing sounded solid...closing a door made a thud sound and the owner was blown away by the reduction in road/wind noise...running a very solid stereo system and you could see the panels of the truck flexing from the sound, but you couldn't hear a rattle...



    In the doors, if you can, get a layer of it (or at least even a piece of it) up through that big hole in the lower inner skin and stick it to the inside of the outer skin, then a layer on the inner skin too. The entire roof panel on the inside (above the headliner) makes a massive difference in noise while driving (think wind rushing over). Rear quarter panels, just like the doors, get as much on the inside of the outer skin as possible and a second layer on the inner skins.

    Don't cover openings in the skins with it, it has zero effect when not attached to metal...cut it so it leaves the opening, then use a layer of plastic to block moisture and a layer of underpad (automotive carpet underpad) between the metal of the inner skin and interior trim panel...that will have a much better effect at blocking sound travelling through the opens in the inner skin than Dynamat ever will.



    Can't wait to see this rig in person...
