My Build Thread - 99 XJ
 
So I figured I would start a build thread since the XJ is going to see some changes in the near future.

As it began

Negative I just have a number of writeups, compiled they could be a build thread but I figured I would just make it easy and put everything into one place.

Heh the way hes talking about "the near future" I have a feeling if I went to the IRO group buy thread his name is on the list. I was very close about gettin in on it but didn't have the cash and wasn't worth borrowing from a friend or family when I started thinking about going 1ton.

Give us info on what you're planning :club:

Heres todays update, installed switch panel. Not secured yet so not quite centered but you get the idea.

Love the JCR bumper, very well built and great customer service.

Not much difference with 33's, you will need to trim up front and im going to in the rear just because. With stock gearing there is a difference but not one that bothers me. Personally I love it, best thing I have done in awhile.

nice switch panel! man i wish i wouldve known about that before i did all my switches. but where would i keep my change? :) oh yeah, obama has that all taken care of hahahaha

*sorry if that post was offensive to any..just senseless 1AM humor :)*

XJK 05-27-2010 08:46 PM

So today I put my aux fan on a switch, works well. Switch on fan on constantly, switch off fan kicks on as normal when needed.

Here are the next two things to do on the jeep.
