ok, I'll say one more thing.....wouldn't it look alot better with a 5.5inch long arm kit on 33s?

Spencer, you should buy it before I keep putting so much into it. everything is always for sale for the right price.

You're on a forum asking XJ fanatics if your XJ would look better with a bigger lift and bigger tires...I think you know the answer to this question haha. And I don't think it would qualify as a "safari build" if you didn't ;-) lol

I would buy it but there's 3 things wrong with that. 1-I don't have the money. 2-I want a bone-stock XJ so I can build it up myself. And 3-If I bought it from you I wouldn't be able to drool all over your new add-ons lol

35s maybe someday down the road. I want to keep the hp30 and chry8.25 axles. I wouldn't do 35s until I decide I want to buy alloy shafts etc. 33s will fit nicely, it will still look big, and the axles will like them better.
