    Default XJ in Longmont



    What's up Colorado?!

    I came from the East Coast where I had this XJ for over a decade, occasionally taking it on trails and building on it. Unfortunately, the area has about 1% of the public trails that Colorado does. Last May, I moved to Fort Collins and having more off road trail access was one of my top reasons to move West. I just moved to Longmont and found this forum (by Googling something about replacing XJ wheel cylinders - today's project), so here I am trying to find people to ride trails with. And trying to get my brakes back together.

    I also bought a '12 WRX a few months ago, so the XJ is finally a dedicated trail rig!

    Anyway, here's the good stuff:
    2000 Cherokee XJ
    4.5" mix and match lift, 31" mix and match tires
    Powertrax rear lunchbox locker
    Custom rear bumper, rockers, roof rack & fender flares
    12,000 lb winch
    Lots of trimming
    Dual core AMD 64 bit computer (for GPS/GIS, DAQ, music, OBD-II)
    CB radio and lots of different stereo setups
    Many future plans: 8.5" lift & SYE, 35-37" tires, more bumper work, portal axles, possible chop-top & 4.7L stroker


    Looking forward to hitting the trails!

    I finished my brakes today, which means I'm ready to run a trail! I'm thinking about joining you guys on the "MSV-Coney Flats-Saturday July 12" ride.

    I can help you with the first one. Not so much with the second one.
