just so everyone knows changing out the head light switch completely sucks.. I dont know if my methods were correct but I took out my
instrument gauges and approached it from the top.


complete PITA

Not much is new. I am changing careers into telecommunications and I have been traveling a lot. As far as the XJ goes. My sister didn't want it so my dad has been driving it and fell in love. We are talking about ordering a lift kit soon. We just installed a roof rack I got on a trade from a fellow JF member. Ill get a pic up here in a sec

Had to get her towed home last night. The key got stuck in the lock cylinder and the jeep kept going into "alarm" security mode. A bit ridiculous and annoying. Atleast it's an easy fix. I wish the jeep didn't even have an alarm since I only have a key and not a clicker

well a year later, it looks like changes are coming for my XJ. im thinking its time for the JK to go (sick of car payments) and im gonna build the XJ similar to my old one. 3.5" lift on 33's, armor, lockers, maybe even swap in a benz 5cly turbo diesel (scored a free 1984 benz W123).

That is one of the big reasons I daily drive my XJ. I have friends with payments lol. Theres nothing more fun than making repairs on a vehicle that you make payments on haha.

Thinking about getting this bumper from one of our very own.

Also looking at the IRO 4" lift kit.
