ATTENTION, and WELCOME new members

Welcome to the world of XJ ownership. This site is pretty newb friendly so don't be afraid to ask questions. We do encourage people to use the search feature though.

The search feature only reads a minimum of 4 characters. Use the * as a space filler. So if you are asking about a TPS sensor, you will use " TPS* sensor " when you search.

A huge part of helping you guys diagnose issues and help with axle identification and lift help is to know some info on your vehicle. Please take the time to editted your USR info and specifically your "Profile". It will give important info like year, engine, transmission, and transfer case. You can also add the axles you have inthere as well as other mods or doo dads you have.

Again, welcome to the board!

Lets just say I was old and wise enough to know my XJ has a unibody when I bought it and body lifts even on a rig with a frame are not "cool".

But I also knew when I bought it I had not a clue on how to do anything more then bolt on and off stock parts.

That is why I got online and the first place I sign up on was JF.com

This place is friendly, not like anyone ever argues just to argue on JF. Everyone is always as nice as they can be treating everyone with Kid gloves.

That's pretty technical though, even if you were way off.
