frame plates. the most important base point for any XJ build. I chose ruffstuff middles and HDOffroad front and rears








2x6 rockers tied into the frame. the 2nd most important part of any XJ build








booger welds to sheet metal. the most ANNOYING part of any XJ build

sorry to say that you will notice many penis's throughout this build LOL. because my friends love to draw dicks on all my hard work

transfer case clocking jig from IRO. (who knew they actually made a quality product?)






clocking it up about 11 or 12* is perfect. I just had to massage the floor with a BFH but all the linkage and bolts went back on just perfectly. it sit's completely above the frame rails

Haha my buds are the same way. Looking good, clocking the case and going flatbelly is definitely on my to do list this year.
