New Lift/New Attitude

Hey Guys I just finished installing an RC 3" Series II lift. As soon as I finished, I new I wanted to go higher. Installed 3/4" front spacer, RC adjst. shackles in rear. I was fortunate not break off any bolts(lots of PB Blaster). Installed TC drop and JKS quick disc. at the same time. No vibrations, feeling lucky about that. Overall very satisfied with the way it turned out. XJ actually rides better now, than with the old stock suspension. The shakey butt feeling is gone...feels much more tied down. Let me know what you think.

First day home, wash and paint restoration.


Sitting at about 4"












Detours Light Bar



JKS Disco.






A little 4th of July Flavor

Not bad man.

I have a 3.5 inch lift, but I need spacers too. Bumpers and armor bring it down.

I work on Mopars

No, it's not an upcountry. Standard garden variety XJ

The guy I bought it from said he rarely washed it and never waxed it
For the most part, the paint was in reasonable shape. I started with a clay bar to remove dirt/contaminates. Next was a scratch remover/shine enhancer. Then sealant. Followed by a good quality Carnuba wax. It really brings it back to life
