    A buddy of mine who wholesales always ends up with some pretty interesting vehicles for my shop partner and I to work on. Check this one out. Its a 2wd 02 heep grand cherokee with the V8. Runs great but one minor setback. The steering is scary to say the least. Welded to the cast passenger knuckle is a small piece of bent DOM with a small bit of gusseting. Its about a foot long where it is connected to the stock brag link. He got pulled over and was told to get it off the road due to the VIOLENT death wobble lol. So we are putting true crossover on the RIGHT way. Also there is NO track bar on the front so we will also be addressing that lol. Also thron in is a pic of the F-650 we just put motor mounts on. Its a beast!:eek1:

    Looks like that front axle could use a truss too.

    I don't get it... why not add a d60, transfer case, and drive shaft? I don't understand! What's the point? It could be capable with only a little bit more work...

    That J$$P is over on bncoffroads website under readers rides. It says
    "Blake Roberts 2002 Jeep grad Cherokee. 30" custom suspension lift. 44in Super Swamper sts's. Boyd Cotington wheels 17x12." Its about 4 pages back under readers rides. If i rember right it used to forsale on their site for 18k. And I have seen it a few times in a parking lot in Houston, Tx.
    Glad It wasnt driving when I saw it wowo what a Heep.

    Just a little background info for ya.

    i like the rims on the jeep.

    why did you put "not for hire" on the truck? do people try to hire you that often? i'd love for that to happen to me.:laugh:

    The "Not for Hire" is a DOT thing. I belive that if not shown that it is considered a commercial vehicle, I may be wrong tho.

    Even with 4x4 this thing is WAY too tall to wheel. Its sways like crazy as high as it is.

    Thanks for the heads up Ill go over there and check it out. If anyone knows a sucker lol it can be had for alot less than 18k.

    The "Not for hire" is so that you are not required to have a commercial drivers licence (class a) to drive it.
