I bought this 99 XJ around 6 months ago. So far it's been fun, reliable and is cleaning up well. I am so far going with stock upgrades, rims, stereo and plan on adding cruise control. This is a before pic.


As of yesterday

Thank you all. The nice thing about the paint, It's available in a spray can. New rear brakes today, new wheel cylinders and hardware as well. I got the more expensive kit with the adjuster and e brake hookup as well. Some of the old parts were stuck under the shoe making noise.

I keep finding stuff I want to do to this thing. ZJ rear discs, mtx swap, maybe some tougher bumpers, and I need a trailer for work. So far this is obsession number 2. Obsession number 1 is my Ford Probe GT. Both are cheap to work on, I junkyard shop for both, I'm constantly looking for parts. Those rims were a j/y find. $140 for the set with good tires.

Junkyard shopping, yay! There is one catch... i have to find a driver's seat. Worst case scenario, i'll get a wj or zj seat. I also have to wire that stuff up too.

I dont know how you like the grey bumper and caps and side trim but I went over mine with some black plastic paint and it made it look 1000% better imo
