You're gonna love the WJ brakes & steering Get the steering angles right, and there's no need for a steering stabilizer. I've run my ZJ without an SS for the past five years after the WJ brake & knuckle swap. Not even the slightest hint of DW - ever

That's actually a pretty damn genious idea on the trackbar mount to get the TB as long as possible with OTK steering.
Any clearance issues? I'm guessing the C- gusset mount is a double shear (C's gusseted on both sides?)


As for swaybar endlink mounts, you can just about see them on my ZJ here.. it should be pretty much the same on an XJ. I've pushed my axle slightly forward, and the coil plates are centered over the axle tube.

MrBlaine came up with the track bar mount and team NAXJA used it on their KOH rig. I can't vouch for how they ride, but I do have a couple of buddy's that have used it on their rigs, both are very picky about the way the set their rigs up, and both are very happy with how they perform, both on and off road.
Not double shear, just one 3/4" bolt, about 8" long(iirc), with 1/4" wall tube. Only about 3/4" of the bolt hangs out of the tube, and the shear strength required to snap that bolt would have to be ridiculous, I'm sure I will have MANY other parts break before that bolt will.

Update: I'm not going to do the brake upgrade on the XJ, I'm wrapping up the loose ends and enstalling the last few parts I have sitting on the shelfs getting it ready to sell. The drive for my new job brought about the need for a new daily driver that I bought back in December(2017 Subaru Outback), and I have barely driven the XJ since then.
l've gotten quite an education in performance vehicles, and was raised stout hot rods and classic cars, and I'm finally getting to a point in my life I want to build something with some power, serious looks, and possibly take to the track. I've been looking very hard at Factory Five Racing, something in the 33 Hot Rod flavor.

Anyway I'm going to make a big push this summer to work on the Jeep and finish up the more pressing items on the todo list, so here's what's happened so far:
Welded up the lower control arms, ended up getting an aluminum upper control arm that seems to be just about the right length, but I'm going to see what it looks like once I get the front end aligned.
Arms are in, but still have a little bit of the body side control arm mounts to cut away and paint. I'll try and get some better pictures once I get the rest of the brackets cut out and everything painted up.

Next on the agenda is to takle the drivers side floor pan and duplicate the seat mounts I did on the passenger side. I might go ahead and pull the OME add-a-leaf and install the JKS shackles, since all I have left is to get the rear floor pan and shackle relocation brackets, and I'll be tackling that at the same time. Finally, I'll get around to that Dirt Bound DIY rear bumper I've had sitting in the corner.
