Looking good so far. Someday you should cut and fold those rear quarters = no more rust, lol.
I suggest painting your stock wheels black if you want black wheels.

update: i am in mid bumper install as of now. me and a buddy were doing it yesterday but i had stuff to do later in the day so as of now its sitting with the old bumper off and new one ready to go on. just one steering box bolt in the way. and the worst part is i had knee surgery today so i wont be working on it for a while. my dad will probably finish it up. i wish he wouldn't cause he has a project of his own, he needs to finish his 69 camaro he's been working on for the longest time! i'll post pics when its done

same! the trails down here? nonexistent unfortunately. bundy hill is 1 hour 30 minutes away which is the best we have but i haven't gone because i do not wanna get stuck without recovery and have to get pulled out by my axle. any good trails up by traverse? we usually head up to elk lake once every summer and i want to bring the xj and hit some trails

Dang man, sounds like you really give it your best though. My friend tore her ACL from playing soccer and she was in pain for quite a while. Not something I'd want to go through. I'm also pretty jealous of your bumper. Once I lift mine a bumper is next on the list. I've almost hit wayyyy too many deer, and when I say almost I mean within inches.

yeah it sucks, but i'd be pretty good if i had a whole season. yeah i decided bumper came first cause if i get stuck no matter what im screwed. i know what you mean about deer, they are all over the place in michigan. i have bought it for deer insurance as well my parents only have liability on it

Looks good! I like your tail lights / front markers. The thought has ran through my head to tint mine but not sure yet.
