Heck weld the front up too, but then youd have to trailer it there.

That's is worst advise I've ever seen on here , never weld the front unless you have manual locking hubs and it is not street driven.

Thats why i said "have to trailer it there"
I would assume if he is going into a real mudbog, and not just playing around, that it would be just a toy for mudding...

X2. I feel this thread will end up with an XJ built with a PVC cage, home guttering for a snorkel, and lots of booger welds...

What's wrong with PVC cages, just pour concrete In them and it should be plenty strong

So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.
