ok so I just bought my younger brother (17yoa) an 89 cherokee with the 4.0L I6 (ya don't rub it in boys and girls I am jelous of the engine...). Its his first vehicle ever, and even though its not a wrangler and I'm proud to say that I picked it out and bought it. I'll post pics of it later.
Anyway on another note it needs alot of work that is going to be put into it. He is going to be using it for his senior project and his work will be cut out for him over the next few months.
My main question is that I have a set of rims from my wrangler sitting around and would like to know if they would fit his "new" XJ as it will need new tires.
Here is a list of things that he is going to need to do/purchase for his newly found project...
front/rear brake pads rotors and possibly drums.
sway bar bushings
muffler (probably going with a cherry bomb)
radiatior overflow bottle
power steering cap
interior body spray (due to the no carpet)
Front end clip (bumper/grill)
and a battery cable.
If you guys could give me some advice on helping with this project it would be most helpful (and if you have any spare parts for a 89, or like model years, let me know if we can work something out)
Mostly I just need suggestions on stuff to do to it within reason to be functionable and fun
