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.

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

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...
