Welcome! It's funny, I used to have a '98 black Cherokee, and I still miss the hell out of it.

Yeah, the cherokee is VERY missed.... Also had a DPG Offroad hybrid suspension, plus some other goodies like C-Rok F/R bumpers and tire carrier and 35's at the end. I will build another one someday, if I could find a white two door.

I just worked with Sean yesterday at the FD. We have been slooooowly modding his Silverado. Just the basics for now though. Leveling kit, push bar, HIDs and some rigid led lights on the bar.

Glad to see you here, Nick! Can't wait to see pics of your rubi with the T&T tubes. I've been drooling over them forever but have yet to see them in person.

FYI - we are doing a trail run next weekend in Weare, NH if you'd like to come out with us!

I love the tube fenders and corners, but if I had it to do again I would go aluminum. Plus the company I had refinish them with industrial primer didn't etch them enough and in certain spots they are looking pretty crappy. I will most likely be yanking them and re-welding the seams, then using chassis saver as a new primer/base coat. Next weekend sounds fun, but I have a ton of little stuff that needs to be done before inspection time at the end of the month. I will see where I am at near the end of the week, I have some spare time since my only 24 hr shift is Wednesday.
