time to build another xj

Well last week while i was at work i started thinking i want another xj so i found one one on craigslist and started ordering parts. So i ordered a 6.5" roughcountry lift, 35x12.50 procomp mud terrains on 15x8 procomp steel wheels, aussie locker, diff covers front & rear, axle tube sleeves & a single chamber muffler, still waiting on diff covers and sleeves. I went and picked up the friday its a 99 limited, wood grain, leather, sun roof with 190k, picked it up for $2200. I*got the front finished to day and going to finish the back in the morning.

Never been a fan of the 97+ XJs but I've always liked that color.

I don't where Marshall is but Marble Falls is supposed to have a great offroad park. I saw they have levels from about 1-9. So whats level one, the parking lot?

I'm from Longview, hello neighbor! However I'm stationed in GA

I'm not sure if those are short arms? If so how does it feel on the road? Any bump steer? I have always loved that color, and added bonus to leaving the stock fenders on!!!

what do you want for the 242??

and marble falls texas is located pretty central, about an 1 and a half north of austin.

reason I ask is because we are having a Grand Slam Texas @ hidden falls adventure park and XJ's are more then welcome.
