    Vissers Cherokee

    so this build started almost 2 years ago when i killed my old XJ

    bought a sammy to play with but that didnt work so i got a toyota on 38's with no motor to throw into the sammy. Well i never finished that project
    here is how it sits (pics 1)

    on friday i picked up a 1990 4dr XJ for 100 bucks good buy except that it had no axles or suspension no problem cuz i only need a motor and tranny

    so today my dad and i pulled the motor tranny and t-case looks like this (pics 2 and 3)
    found on the motor a stamp that says it was a factory rebuilt and documentation stating that it only has 10k on the rebuild pretty sweet

    so here is where the real work begins i bought this jeep last week its a 2dr 1990 xj has 35" boggers 5.5" long arm kit and all the doodads(pics 4and 5)

    i only took the body motor tranny tcase and axles he wanted the lift kit and tires bumbers and snorkel back to go on his other jeep.
    only problem with the 2dr is the motor is blown can be seen in this vid. http://s453.photobucket.com/albums/q...t=DSCF1523.flv

    so here is the project break down

    black jeeps motor and tranny are going in the 2dr along with a d300

    front axle: Toy 8" 4.88 gears birfields and welded
    rear axle: Toy 8" 4.88 gears birfields and welded

    suspension: will be leafs in the back and a 3 link up front with coils of some kind.

    first step is to get the jeep running with the new motor and then get the axles and suspension underneath it

    more pics to come in the following days when i get the 2dr home

    thanks for looking
    Luke

    nice project man.
    or should i say projects.
    did something like this in the summer. got one xj then got another one just for the suspension. after scrapping it found out the one i kept had no floors under the carpet.
    oh well.

    btw are you going to sell any parts off the xj you not keeping?

    the zuk was too much for me to complete in an adequate amount of time this will be much more time effective

    there are not really any parts left on it what were you looking for?

    well i made some progress today

    scrapped the shell of the black jeep

    and got the zuk out of the corner

    pulled all the random stuff from the interior and pulled the front axle out

    next step is to pull the motor and tranny from the zuk along with the rear axle and then cut up the zuk cage (hopefully tomorrow night)

    after that is done the 2dr will come home and the real build will begin
