Gillian’s 92 Jeep Cherokee XJ

We found this beauty bone stock and still shiny. Gillian daily drives her Jeep, and makes frequent trips between Vegas and LA, so we did a mild build for now.
First, Dylan worked his magic trimming and tucking the fenders, then we installed a 4-1/2″ lift with our Shackle Relocation Brackets and longer shackles.
Next, Gillian’s ? Cherokee got our Track Bar and Track Bar Relocation Brackets. We also gave her a “Weak Link” Gusset, which strengthens the pocket that the passenger upper control arm attaches to on a Dana 30 axle by capping the front of it.
And of course, no personal Jeep build is complete without our full Over the Knuckle Heim Steering Kit. Our steering kit gives her plenty of clearance and strength for wheeling, and solid stability on the street.
Gillian added a personal touch to some of the parts we put under her rig, and gave them a red flake paint job and some pinstriping. Very nice!

Caldwell’s Turbo Suzuki Sidekick Build

Suzuki Sidekick build by Sidewinder Fabrication. Sidewinder made a custom turbo kit and manifold, bumpers, belly armor, rock sliders, re-geared the transfer case for 4 low low, lifted it 2 inches, and upgraded to 31″ tires. Soon it will be solid axle with trussed Dana 44s on 35″ tires with long arms and coilovers.

The next projects we have going on the Sidekick are full width Dana 44 axles from a Wagoneer, coilovers, 35″ tires, and a turbo (again)!

Keep an eye out for new photos of our progress!
