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


31's and RE 3.5




33's and RE 3.5






I will keep you guys updated on what happens in the future.

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

[B][I]New Mexico Driving Rules...[/I][/B][LIST][*]As a general rule, the vehicle most in need of a significant amount of bodywork (for which the driver is most likely uninsured) always has the right of way.[*]Never use directional signals when changing lanes. They only serve to give away your next move, causing most NM drivers to speed up and not let you in. In fact, use of directional signals within most large NM city limits is actual illegal.[*]NM law states that at least 50% of all paved surfaces within the state must be under construction at any one time. In all construction zones, at least half of the available lanes must be closed, regardless of whether any actual construction is be accomplished or not. Construction signs shall be regularly repositioned in order to warn drivers about upcoming lane closures immediately after they pass the last exit before traffic backups.
[*]Driving through constructions zones with upcoming lane closures is a popular game in NM. Itís called the "speed up and pass as many cars as you can, then see how close to the lane closure you can squeeze back into traffic before hitting any of the orange construction barrels" game.[/LIST]

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.

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.
