I'm always on the look out for other XJ's around my area since I got mine. I caught up with a guy through another local forum that lives close to me and has a red one with a 4.5" lift and 33's. Cool deal.
Last sunday on my way home from my gf's house, I caught a glimse of a badass 2dr black XJ going the opposite way on 301. It must have had at least a 6.5" lift and 35's on it, looked huge. Bushwhackers, big *** front bumper, roof rack, you name it. It was pretty decked out and looked great.
Then, about a week ago, I was appalled by this sight. Saw an XJ that was towing a trailer stopped at a light. As I passed, I noticed it must have had a small 2" lift or so because it was sitting pretty high. Also had the fenders trimmed pretty high, but not for big, knobby tires. The thing was sitting on big chrome rims and low profile tires. I was praying they were just his street tires and he had other for the mud, but I'll never know. It looked horrible. No flares, chopped fenders, and dubs. Gross. I as I drove by lol.
we just had a car show in our town saturday night and some one entered a xj that was lowered with 20 inch wheels and one of those to big and loud for anybodys own good stero systems it looked real goofy I wish i had a camera to show you all,what a shame I felt bad for the poor xj knowing all the other xj`s out there are laughing at it
when im pushing carts at work, i see it all too. i work in burnsville which has the biggest wanksters youll ever see. a minivan came in the other day with a spoiler on the roof, walmart spinners with the stock black wheels behind it, a 3" exhaust tip, euro-style tail lights and the hood had a random hole cut in the middle that served absolutley no purpose. never seen a pimped xj though. if i wouldve seen that, i wouldve probably thrown up all over it.
