Burrito Burner Build

So I sold my beloved little TJ a few months back in need for something a little more practical. So I bought a half decent XJ in its place. It's a '96 4.0, D30 front 29 spline 8.25 rear with 93k on the clock. It was the most rust free find after 2 months of hunting.

I had quite a bit of extra money from the sale left over so here comes the fun!
Planning on following all the latest fads by keeping it low, big tired and sexy...
Started off needing a new gas tank, original one was rotted leaking fuel everywhere. Slapped on a skid row tank skid and rear cut and fold in the process. Also fixed a hole in the drivers side floor with old socks and duck tape, doing things the right way!!

Next came the Aussie for the rear and full JCR ground effects, trying to keep everything 'Merican made buddy!

Haha na, it was a failed attempt at trying to stir the pot. Here's what she really looks like,


When I get some time I'll post up all the good stuff. Short list is a bunch of Iron Rock Off Road goodies, Synergy front coils, Old Man Emu Rears with shackle relocators, and Bilstein 5100s.

Haha it hauled and the speedo was about ten mph fast at 65. I got the rims off of a neighbor for an embarrassingly cheap price. Had them on a mustang. Burn outs and donuts with the aussie was a blast

List o' parts:
Suspension: front; Synergy coils part #8063-45 4.5 TJ springs gave just about 4" lift.
JKS discos, Bump stopped, bilstein 5100 part #24-188197
IRO double shear track bar, HD tie rod, and upper lower control arms (and ss brake lines)
All new tierod ends drag link and u-joints (all NAPA)
M.O.R.E. steering brace

Rear; OME CSO33RB (left overload spring on and removed 3rd leaf), RC shackle relocation brackets, IRO adjustable boomerang shackle, bilstein 5100 part #33-066868
On order: DPG adjustable bump plates and 4.1" bumpstops

Right now the front end feels pretty darn good for a lifted jeep, no death wobble at all and it's properly bumped. No problems when wheeling. Rear does not rub too bad but I put the rear sway bar back in and along with the overload springs it helps limit travel.

Tires are 295/70-17 cooper stt's with procomp wheels

Armor is skid row gas tank, tnt belly, JCR everything else

Also has AA SYE and East coast gear supply driveshaft

Thanks for looking!

If the rear is rubbing, why not trim? I've got 33s and no bumpstops and it doesn't rub at all.

Haha thanks, many a Taco Bell drive thru in that pig so it's kinda fitting. Just as an FYI, Yankee Candle midnight summer car fresheners help the best on keeping the fart smell down. Fresh Linen and coastal breeze are a close second haha
