1996 Jeep XJ Cherokee

John Carson lives in Auckland New Zealand and owns this cool Jeep XJ Cherokee.  Is a great all round truck that owes him around NZD 8000.00,  the parts ex the USA are cheap and of great quality!

What modifications have you done for your 4x4 and what are your future plans?
4.5" Long arm kit with Acos adjusters
True trac LSD's front and rear
4.88 re-gearing, chromemoly axles
35" Simex and 35" Mud Terrain tyres

Next after money - what's most challenging when lifting your 4x4 truck?
Nothing really, many bolt on products ex USA.

Where do you go wheeling and what is the terrain like?
Many Forrestry tracks, deep mud/ clay bogs, Muriwai beach for Drone fishing. Good family beach/ fishing vehicle and reliable enough to hit the hard tracks too.

Tell us about an interesting experience you had on the trail!
Going out with much more expensive trucks and mine going further and not breaking!
