    Nice! I picked up an 88 wrangler over the summer with a plow on it and some very tired suspension. Grabbed a 4" skyjacker lift and a set of wheels and tires (4 black rock wheels with center caps and 33x10.50 BFG K02s, and one matching black rock wheel with a 31" tire for the spare) for on it in the spring.
    Thinking of fabricating two different bumper setups for it, one with the plow mount built in, and one with a winch and small stinger type bar. Figured for the winter I could run the plow bumper and in the summer I could put on the winch, so I won't have a plow mount hanging down all the time.

    You might want to reconsider the mismatched spare, using tires of different diameters on a drive axle for anything more than a brief stint in an emergency can pretty much guarantee an expensive and PITA differential rebuild. And certainly not recommended at any time on a limited slip or locker.
    If you can juggle tires around to make it onto a non drive axle, it's fine for awhile.
    Myself, I keep 'em all matched and rotated regularly.

    I figured that'd be a recipe for trouble, so a 33" spare is on the short list. Since I've picked up the jeep I've noticed that a lot of guys in my area are running bigger tires with a smaller spare.

    I finally buttoned up my winch install tonight. Now all I need to do is find a spot where I can safely and legally respool the winch under tension.

    Awesome. What color? There's a newer one, 14 or 15 I think, running around here. It's that really awesome orange color, lifted on 38"s. It's a sharp jeep. I have to get one of the techs to get in it for me cause the guy's not running step bars and my legs are too short LOL

    I love my 2000 Cherokee. The day it goes down I’ll buy another of the old Cherokees. I use it as my primary driver and work vehicle year round. It’s done everything I’ve ever asked it to, and I have total trust when driving in the Winter. I’ve done a few things to it, but it’s mostly stock.

    Black. I run a 2.5" Rock Krawler lift and 33" tires. I have Ace Rock Sliders that double as side steps, along with the Rubicon rock rails on the pinch seams. Hard Rock bumpers with a hoop, Teraflex Hinged HD Tire Carrier, Evo Protek skid system, Superwinch Tiger Shark 9500 SR winch. At some point I'll get some decent photos.

    When I bought mine and opened the catalog for after-market, I thought " Oh my, what rabbit hole have I fallen down? ". Weighing options but think the winch/bumper is next then a overhead rack. Fortunately first I have a small trailer to rebuild which is going to be more work then money.

    I hope that photo was taken w/a really short focal length lens, 'cause if not, her front camber looks to be totally borked.
    Fisheye lens? Or dropping down off of stuff too hard, or trying to climb shelves too hard too fast.
    Man, I hope it's the lens.

    I got my filler plates from Maximus-3 today. I'll probably install them this weekend after I do an oil change. I'll be happy if I can get them on before the state starts salting the roads, which I'm surprised they haven't yet, so I can keep my vacuum pump protected.

    Nice rig, I like it. Hard to believe there are ATVs that are bigger than that these days, LOL!
