1996 XJ Build c pic

















Good Morning guys I am new to the XJ side. I have mainly dealt with CJ's but with a growing family switched to an XJ. As far as this XJ goes it has 262,000+ miles. It has a super lift (As told to me from seller) 4.5" lift. It has 33 X 12.50 r15 Mixed treads. Possible death Wobble. Interior is good shape (Ill post some more pics later when I get home in a couple days) This is my build up and please feel free to add what you guys might think would be great purchases or change ups for a trail rig. Moderate off road use is the plan.

1.IRON ROCK off road Track bar (DW ISSUE)
2.IRON ROCK OFF ROAD LOWER CONTROL ARMS
3.33 x 10.50 r 15 (Going to reuse rims)
4.KJ Rear disc brake swap (waiting on a parts liberty to open up)
5.Aussie Locker front

So far this is where I am at!

Ok here's a few more pic's (more detailed) So far I've looked it over and its not bad at all. Minor rust. One problem I did notice is driver side lower control arm drop bracket is bent back, and rust on passenger side inner fender wall frame support. I just ordered some quick disconnects and installed rear hatch lift support after I hit my head getting groceries in it. Extended brake lines and track bar from IRO is the next to do!

Just a quick update I have upper and lower ball joints new steering stabilizer and Iron rock off road track bar and bracket to go in as well as setting up a on board air system. I'll be posting pics of everything as soon as I get some free time. I've decided to go with IRO critical path 3 link long arm and slip yoke eliminator.

Just a quick update I put 34x10.50 TSL swampers on. I also put in a Aussie locker front side. I'm in the process of putting on the IRO track are but have a bolt that is playing hard to get out. I also am putting in new ball joints but the ball joints are seized and I'm going to have to hit them with some major heat. I'll post more pics later. New pics are in original post.
