So I have been following this build and didnt even notice you were in Oside till I saw the driveshaft sticker that said Vista.

Will have to get intouch once I get my build going, and more importantly wheeling.

we have probably been there at the same time...I have a super cub plane as well but I dont land very well....its usually on the shelf waiting for repairs.

I will be picking up an XJ in the next month and will be checking out all the spots I can. I am still out on deployment right now....should be home on the 16th.

shifter mod

the factory center console was trashed when i got this thing, so i decided to do things a little different.

started by cutting down the factory shifter.


cut down the fac 4x lever as well.


made a new release lever and put a ball on top, still need to find a sexy alum. shift lever though.

started making a new cover out of some 18g sheet.

bent it up.



then installed the cover.


not everyones style, but just something fun for me.

headliner build

took down the stock headliner, stripped all the foam and covering.

then used some high density neoprene type interior foam.

cut out the designs, and glued them to the backer.


then glued the new headliner material to the backer.

im a old school hot rod guy, so i went with flames for fun, you could cut out any design you like and wrap accordingly.

end result.
