    hello everyone, obviously new to the group but not new to jeeps or using it, I have a 1999 XJ sport with tons of mods and very capable offroad, I'm hoping by joining this group I'll be able to learn a bit more about my jeep and the jeep world, find some good places to take my jeep and people to talk with and possibly wheel with. I currently live in Las Vegas NV but shortly moving to Salem OR. I'm experiencing a pretty serious issue with my jeep I'm hoping maybe someone here can help with. I'll be posting a thread in the Cherokee tech forum if you can help please please chime in with any info that might get me back on the trails. Thank you all in advance

    Thank you all for the warm welcome I look forward to becoming a strong part of this group.

    Awesome I can't wait to get out there and see some of the beautiful country and experience the great trails they have.

    Nice! If I was in the market for a JKU I really have to look closer at the XJs like yours. That location looks relaxing and fun.

    The top pictures were taken at lake mead outside of Las Vegas, the other is on a trail here called Rocky Gap, both nice getaways if it's not to hot lol. I've contemplated selling my rig to get a newer wrangler but it's tough to part ways with this one it's a very capable rig.

    DAMN Dude. I'm impressed. My XJ was not even close to your build. Sweet rig dude. I love it.

    My intro to Jeeps was my XJ. I loved it from day one. Always wanted a Wrangler. BUT couldn't afford one. So, I bought a Cherokee. And no regrets. Again....my intro to Jeeps. And I had no idea what they were capable of doing. And my XJ changed that. 20170317_195144.jpg
    Nice XJ dude. Welcome to the forum again. Bad ass XJ. :bowdown:

    Thank you all very much, my rig and I have a love hate relationship lol we've been through a lot together as I've heard from a lot of jeep owners lol as far as Vegas goes... you can have it lol. I'm originally from Utah, I've been in Vegas for 17 years and wouldn't recommend living here to anyone but everyone is different.
