Xenon flares are not available for the XJ.

Not hard.

Yes.

No.

Do it!

Yeah I thought they were available. Well after lookin on the internet, it looks like Bushwacker is the only company that makes flat flares for cherokees.

Screwed on the CB antenna quick disconnect. Now I can pull all the way into the garage and get through those low hanging branches without having to unscrew the antenna every time.

And earlier my buddy called me outside and said his car wasn't starting and the lights were flashing. I wonder what was wrong.

No I just wire-wheeled the piss out of it and gave him a jump, started right up.

Auto XJs came with 3.55, some with the towing package came with 3.73, manual 4.0s came with 3.07s and manual 2.5s came with 4.10.

Just got back from checking out the roof rack. Decided to pull the trigger.



Came with four working flood lights.





Waiting for rust removal and paint.



The rack is designed to mount on top of a YJ using these bars, but I'm going to make it work for the XJ. I took the bars too just in case I need to cut them up for brackets or something.



The Jeep patiently waiting for its new parts to be ready.

Just bought some new sway bar bushings too since I can see light through my old ones.

I was also looking at my new rack a little closer and it is a Garvin Industries Wilderness Expedition Rack for a YJ Wrangler. It retails for $800 before tax and shipping, and I got it, with four lights, for $150.
