Not really. I've been slacking. This thing should have been wrapped up, registered, on the road and trails about a year ago.

I have a rockhard cage still in the box to get to too, but Getting it on the road comes first. I'm just finding it really difficult finding the time to work on the Jeep. I really want to hurry up and wrap it up, so I can move on to one of my bike projects. I want at least ONE of those done, so I can ride before it gets cold. Sounds easy enough, but we'll see if I can actually accomplish it.

Last time I saw it it was on 33s and on jack stands so I thought you had been busy haha, I hear ya tho, once my white one is done, the black one is going under the knife unless I sell it first. I want to build a 383 SBC and put it in something. I am thinking 383 in the black one with 36s and axles from the white one then an HP44 and 9" with 38s in the white one. But I also want a better tow rig..and I want to get a home theater system in my house..ugh haha

Why do you need two wheelable rigs again?

Ok, the 4.5" RC AAL isn't quite cutting it anymore between the 21 year old stock leafs in the pack and all the added weight to the XJ, soooo. . . . What brand do you guys suggest I go with and what size. . . 5.5, 6.5"???

I just got some insurance money, because our house was robbed this week. Instead of replacing my laptop I'm buying my JEEP a present. . Ready to order today, so hurry up with the suggestions.

wow! That was fast!

I already have the shackles from my RC lift and I have HD offroad shackle relocation brackets. I'd like to sit a little higher than 4.5" since I bumped up to 35's and don't want to trim in the rear anymore. I think if I go to 6.5" I'll actually be closer to 4.5" anyway.

How do I measure to see how much lift I'm at in the rear currently?

Take a tape measure to Walmart and park next to a stock XJ, center of hub up to the flare bottom. Then measure yours.

I would base it on leveling the rig using the bottom of the rocker.
