My first xj build

I posted this on a couple other sites and the good feed back is blowing my head up, and making me happy. Thought I'd drop by here and let you guys blow my head up some more. Last week it was completely stock... Started buying parts a couple months ago, and i finally started wrenching on it last friday, it took me a week to complete it. I am pretty proud of my work.

Well I finished this thing last night.

Specs:
2001 Automatic XJ Sport
NP231
6.5" Lift
Teraflex long arms (dont hate)
Rustys uppers
29 Spline Chrysler 8.25... 4.56s Aussie locker... Disc Brake Conversion
HP Dana 30 out of a 99 xj... 4.56s Lockright
Advanced Adapters SYE
Tom Woods Driveshaft
35" Mickey Thompson MTZs
Other little doodads

Great lookin rig bro. You might wan to consider polishing that front turdy of yours a little... cant be too careful... Possibly look into a truss if you do more "hardcore" wheeling.
