    so i've been looking around 1st gen builds trying to find a one like i have in my mind but no luck....

    just wondering if anyone was building up a 1st gen....


    with a 2.5-4" lift ( preferrabley 3" c/o and 1" BL)


    trail gear all the way around i.e rock sliders/rear bumper/tire gate and front bumper


    bush wacker(or similar brand) fender flares (the big bolt on ones)

    32"-35" x 10"-12.5" tires on about 15"-17" rims


    if there isnt a build out there like that how do my plans sound????


    thanks in advance

    I haven't done a build thread yet, but I've got some of what you're looking for (I guess) :

    • 3" RevTek lift
    (just received my TOYTEC coil overs, will be replacing the RevTek soon)
    • 32x11.5x15 BFG AT's on American Racing black steelies
    • Xenon Fender Flares (the big ones, but not riveted)
    • no trail gear to speak of... I've got some nerf bars in the garage tho :rolleyes:

    ya im considering them^^^^^

    because by the time i buy a 3" ome lift with new leafs in the back with LR UCA it puts me out to about 1600......


    and a really good 4.5 long arm is about 1400


    and a great 6.5 long arm is about 1600



    and tacos are extremly hard to find atleat what i want..... ive been looking for one between 1997-2001 extended cab with 110,000-135,000 miles for about 7500....

    and do date(for about 3 monoths) i have yet to find one like that


    on the other hand i have found mutilple cherokees. those cherokees were between 1998-2001 with 70,000-105,000 miles for about 6000-6500


    how does my logic sound :confused:
