The Problem Child
« on: March 09, 2007, 05:14:56 PM »
MY 1992 Jeep Cherokee has seen alot over the years. IT had a real easy life, i think, before I got it. I bought it with 103000 on the clock from a dealer in Redding. Paid way to much but it sutted my need at the time perfectly.
After it was paid off I started the mods. Now it is a money pit that gets me places, out seeing thing and into more troblem then one guy should be in. Yet the mods are not done. Currently I am in Stage 2. Stage 1 was a effort to have a balance between street ability and Off road capibilty. I found what I can " the happy middle ground" vary well. Stage 2 is just shy of a trailer queen. With only "minor" mods i want to keep the street ability just to get to the trailhead without getting pulled over along the way.

IT is no where from finished yet though. The main obstical I have now is the lack of cash. I look forward to the days when I am chopping sheet metal and fabing up links for the big axles! :o
