Thanks DOODS. The heims are stout. Best thing about them they are easy and cheap to replace!

Next thing that needs to happen is to get my JCR fuel tank skid on and get some 2x6 to weld in for my rockers. I need to get a pic of my rockers in the current state they are in. When we were at Crozet last time, I found myself pivoting around rocks with what was left of my sheet metal rockers. I want to fix that before they cave anymore into my doors.

Lastly, I think I am ditching the tire carrier. Just not really liking it anymore....

Nice build so far, bought my xj lifted on 35's with plenty of goodies to boot, for grand total OF $200 and traded a 79' chevy, but honestly not sure what lift it currently has other than a mentioned/claimed 5.5" lift, thought about dropping it down an inch or so with new coils and leafs and keep everything else.. And i see 3" lift and 35's works as well as 3" and 33's which was on my first xj haha

Bought some new shiny parts this weekend. Also installed the cRusty's steering box brace, tuned the steering, and added a cheap Tenneco steering stabilizer I got for ten dolla from the show. Shyt drives mint now!

Picked up some steel and ordered some JCR nutstrips for the gas tank skid. No pics yet, LAME. I will start the sliders this week sometime...
