A new topic to blog about.....

Wildcat Outdoors will now include Jeepin along with all the other topics discussed here. Two weeks ago I bought a 1989 Jeep Cherokee 4x4. It has some issues, but it runs and the 4x4 works. I got it fairly cheap so I don't feel too bad about it.

When I first got it it looked like this. Not exactly an offroad vehicle.

Next thing I did was build this "shelf" in the back so I can store tools, ropes, come-along and fluids while keeping an area where camping gear and stuff can be put.

The next thing was to loose the "rims" and put back on the factory steel wheels. Fortunately they came with the Jeep, so I only had to buy tires. Looks much better now, don't you think?

I put a roof basket on it Monday but have not taken a pic yet. I also ordered the shocks for it the other day. They will go on upon arrival. In February I will be getting a 4" lift from a fellow NAXJA member.

I will continue to post pics of progress. Future updates will be custom rear bumber with spare tire/gerry can/hi-lift jack mounts. Custom front bumper with winch mount. Repair some floor board rust and coat entire floor area with Rhino-Liner. It wont be a super-duper rock crawler, but I think it will get me thru my deer lease road.

God Bless Yall!
