Nice work, really digging the low lift w/ 35's! Wondering if you have done a write up on the 'trim and tuck' you did on the rear...I did a quick search but couldnt find anything

I didn't do anything different than anyone else. Just a regular cut and fold and than folded the rear quarter. I may cut past the pinch weld later for more up travel, though.

Your xj is almost a twin to mine. I have a 99 with a RE 5.5" long arm set up that I lowered down to a 3" lift, kept the LA's and am running 35's on. Crappy phone pic

My next step is gonna be a cut and fold on the rear lower quarter and slide my rear axle back about 2" for clearance at the front of the wheel opening. Maybe this weekend.

Notch yet. I really need to do more inner fender clearancing than the actual outer fender. I still got a lot of sheet metal left over from my tube fenders that I did on my TJ, so I need to get cutting.

Very cool man! I love it. You need to get a build thread up so we can watch the progress!

So I need some feedback on either a 3 link or 4 link long arm. I was all about a 3 link but I feel like I'll feel safer with a 4 link. This Jeep will be driven on the road a good bit even though it isn't my DD. So give me some feedback!

That's what I am thinking. One link up top just scares me a little for something I will be driving on the highway.

I think 4 link is the way I'll go.

So are you going with a BDS 4 link?? Cuz TNT and Clayton "long arm kits" arent 4 links.....ther radius arms/2link setup in sort of theory



on a side not for BUMP STOPS go to the Junk Yard!!! Ive been keeping notes at work like a lil nerd and

older toyota pickups have a decent rear bumpstop
but the better choice seems to be 03- and up rear bumps off a ram 1500 somethin to look at and is def gonna be cheaper than daystar or some place like that

XJ 35's locked Gas Tank in the Trunk Shox Hoops in the rear.

Haha, Clayton is what I'll go with. And I think I know what I'm doing for bumpstops. But right now I am looking for good prices on gears and master installs...
