Rocklander

A 1996 Jeep Cherokee XJ Sport 4D build by @Jonathan_Karcher

Well it all started back when I was seven and my older brother got his first jeep (WJ) and then onto his TJ. Soon it became my time to learn to drive and I came across a low mileage stock XJ, which was a deal I couldn't pass up. I originally was going to make it for overland use but that quickly changed as I soon realized I like more difficult trails. The current goal is to get it on tons and 40's while still having the equipment on board for the occasional camping trip hence the name Rocklander
