NAXJA.org is an awesome resource for your XJ. Go to the site and register search for budget builds. There are many many interchangeable parts! For instance an s10 leafpack coupled with you xj mainspring is good for 4" of lift no changing shackles, front coils from 79 bronco or f150 is good for 4-5" many many others try this link

Or this one.

Iv got plans for the rear bumper and sliders already. Ill be using a 5x5 tubing in the rear main member than a big channel to wrap the sides with. Will be integrating tow points and a higher hitch receiver. Sliders will be similar to AJ's SuperSquare rockrails. The material i have access to is all square tubing and I like the look of it. I hope to incorporate some tail light guards into the rear bumper since i smashed one already

Do me a favor! And your rig a favor! The shear weight that your adding using that big material is enough but it's unflattering and power robbing and much harder on your components. If you must use it, at least taper it to some shape that will at least play to the design of your orange crush! Take your 5x5 and taper it with a torch and weld on some flat stock! Give it some shape other than square! Challenge your mind ! You can do so much better than square with the materials at hand. That way your rig draws attention for its stunning looks and creative fab work! And not jabs and criticism! C'mon kid show us what ya got!!!!

Wil take those suggestions into mind. The 5x5 really isnt to heavy in reality. My entire front bumper only weighs 120lbs. I use the front bumper for storage of chains and a few other items that under 21 year olds cant have. Serves as a mini fridge here on campus haha. The back will likely be tapered up for better approaches and a bit more style.

Lol only 120 lbs, my front bumper is about 90lbs and at times I think it is too heavy.

120lbs wow that's 50 lbs more than mine and it's considered heavy! Then chains eek!!!! What do you need chains for? Surely not for recovery!!! Nylon straps won't kill you! Chains will!!!!

Has anybody removed the plastic fender liners (front or rear) on the 97+ models. Im noy a big fan of them and am looking to fold the pinch seam in the front. Iv heard something about using a pool noodle if you take the fornt liners out but not sure why itd be needed. Does anybody have any pics of them removed or know why the pool noodle is needed. Aslo do you recommend taking the liners out Thanks

Im about to do the pool noodles. I have no liners and no real problems with it, and cosmetically its pretty much undetectable. Noodles are to keep offroad crud from getting slung into the door area near the hinges and fouling things up.

So I got home on spring break and installed the lift shackles. It looks like a normal XJ should(no sagging rear) Had to cut the old shackles off and use a BMF hammer to force the bolts out of the spring.
Also went with my Dad to the jeep dealer to buy one of those new JKs. We got a 4dr unlimited 6speed hard top all black. He wanted a simple jeep and nothing to fancy. Itll have mostly highway miles but Ill comvince him to get some nice upgrades.

was able to test out my new shackles for the first time today. They worked great but its defiantly time to get new leafs. The picture of the inverted springs is from the 2nd to last picture with the rear tire off the ground. The axle is against the bumpstop in the picture
