So I want to be more active on here and I am starting to get a little more free time now that some projects are caught up..

So- I will start with this.

This is a picture of my 2001 Jeep Cherokee (XJ) when I first got it, very stock and needed some love to get it up to par.

Here is a summary of the build:

JCR Front and rear bumpers
Warn VR8-S Winch with synthetic line
Factor 55 Flat Link winch block (much safer than a standard hook)
Obsession OR Rock Sliders
Bushwacker Flat Flares
4 inch lift
Bilstien 5100 shocks
33 x 12.5 x 15 BFGoodrich KO2 tires
HP D30 Front axle
D44 Rear axle
Both axles are trussed, lockers and 4.56 gears
Roof Top Tent (RTT) is made by Free Spirit Recreation- it is fully automatic, you unlatch the straps and push a button on your phone (can be opened manually also)
8x10 Free Spirit Recreation awning
100 watt Solar panel with bluetooth charge controller
Costco 54qt Fridge
Dometic Fridge Slide
ARB on board air system for running air tools or airing up tires on the trail


I am sure there is more I am missing, but I will add it as I remember.

I drive this Jeep daily, and use it for camping and traveling and having it set up for these things makes it perfect for a BOV since it is outfitted for offroad use and camping and I use it so much anyways.

I have a lifted XJ (1987) one thought I have had is if a solar flare hits I will need electric components to replace what got fried. Have you thought about having a small faraday box with replacement parts in the xj?
