i just picked up a 91 2 door 5spd xj. except i had to do a lot more engine work because the person who had it before decided to not maintain it AT ALL.

I only got a 3" Rusty's lift though, i was going for the 4.5" but my dad talked me out of it...might still get some 1.5" shackles and spacers though.

Looks good!

SFRautomotive 08-16-2010 09:16 AM

and i mounted up half my kayak rack, i still need to modify the rear to work right.

thanks, the 31's are only temporary till i build an 8.8 up and build the front up...then i will be going with 35's

i then removed the TC drop and modified the factory crossmember to have an internal Drop on 1.5's so i wouldnt loose any ground clearance.
