Took the XJ on a 200 mile highway trip this weekend. It got up to speed great, tracked straight, no crazy wobbles or shimmy or vibrations, rode very smooth. Cruising at 70mph at a comfortable 2200 rpm, no sweat for the 4.0.



Open road and up to speed for the first time. Before now the Jeep has barely seen above 50 because I live in town and don't have far to go to get to work.



Temporarily fixed the exhaust with a coat hanger because the rattling and banging was killing me. Once I get the money I'll get the Rusty's catback with the 50 series Flowmaster.

My custom exhaust hanger haha.



Very ghetto but it works for now.



At least I can't hear the pipe repeatedly slamming into the shackle.

Took the XJ off road yesterday and today. These pics are from my cell phone but I have a lot more pictures that were taken with Stephen's camera that are much better quality, I will try to get them off his camera and uploaded tomorrow.

Yesterday's trail run.









After we were done. A lot more mud gets thrown on the side of the Jeep with these wheels. I like it.

Today we decided to bring some wood and get a campfire going so that we could cook some hotdogs.



Following Stephen up the trail. Pics are more blurry than usual because I was bumping around so much.

Trying some hill climbs.





Trying to get good perspective so that you can see just how high and steep these hills are. Pics do no justice.

Arrived at the cooking site. A few leaves had decided to go along for the ride.



Getting the fire going.





My XJ was the buffet table.



Fire



Packed up and heading out.



As I said, I have a lot more pictures that are better quality that I will try to get up soon. But until then, enjoy.
