i personally wouldnt pay that much for a rack. you can find nice ones on craigslist for less than half that price. it may not be made for the "XJ"... but a nice rack is a nice rack. i think ive said that before. go with 31s, 235s are alright, but i was running em on my XJ when it was stock and they felt to small. i would save the $$$ either way and find a NICE set of used 31 muds and mount em on your stock rims?

I've ripped off two mufflers as I said. Maybe I just push my rig harder or maybe its the trails I run. Not sure.

Remove rockers as in REPLACE with 2x6 tubing. Its done all the time on Pirate4x4, I did it on my old XJ, on my buddy's and it will be done on my next one.

I don't run a roof rack because there are two trails that I run often(two of my favourites) that have downed trees that lean or large branches that overhang the trail. 99% of the time I'm sure its fine for a roof rack though.

Is it just me or are there a lot of confrontational people here? lol

save your money on the 235s. As soon as you drop the cash for um you'll be pissed. Find some used 31s for now and start saving for a real 3-4.5" lift and 33s. It WILL happen to you, you think you'll be content with 3" and 31s BUT NOBODY IS...........................

that shackle bolt will come out no problem, just torch it for 5-6 minutes and then pb blast, hit with a hammer, then torch for 2 minutes again. then it'll come out

im a little bit nervous about my floor plan, it has had a quarter inch of water a couple of times after a hard rain. i'll probably bedline it and leave it that way, everything just costs too much
