    Anybody into off-roading here? I would like to make my 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport, off-road worthy. I have started with buying a set of fender flares and mud tires. I also plan to add body armors to it. Is Poison Spyder a highly recommended brand? Any other suggestions?

    Welcome to the Hoard.
    I've been into Jeeps for 25 years now. Started off with a stock CJ. Grew into a aluminum body, full tube chassis 4 seater with a Vortec, Turbo 400, NP 203/300 double transfer case, locked Rockwell 2 1/2 ton front axles in both ends, full hydraulic steering, etc. Now happily back down to a lil TJ with 32" tires and one locker, enjoying all the local trails in the national forest. Its a lot cheaper/easier.
    Poison Spyder used to be known as high end good stuff, probably still is.
    I don't have any experience with body armor, I just built rock sliders and then cut all the other dents out until I could fit larger tires. That's hard on things.

    I REALLY like the stuff from Rubicon Express when I had my YJ.
