So it has been awhile since i have updated this build. So first thing first, I built my jcr diy rear bumper... love it now i want to build a custom front bumper. Next thing i found a great craigslist buy which was the roof rack, which is a defender roof rack with the defender light guard and 4, 9 inch pro comp biolights... Oh and i finally got a full size spare. Now on to the more pressing matter wich would be the recent damage. Long story short tried to climb a rock stairs type obstacle and broke the uhh( forgot what it was called but its between the slip yoke and transfer case) where it is mounted in the t-case. So im thinking of doing an sye, not totally sure of what that entails.... and advice would be great, now heres the pictures:

Lots of good looking XJ's in your group TRex. How did that drive shaft fall off? Did the output shaft on the transfer case fail?
