Definately a good starting point. stated it was a bug out vehicle, is it also your DD?

Hows the rust underneath?

things i see:

rear quarters look like crap. clean it up if you can
rear shackles: wow... get new leafs
I thought it stated fuel cell, that looks like the gas tank was just haphazardly relocated inside the rear. get a real fuel cell or get that tank out of the back
better rear bumper. and tire carrier maybe? dont see a spare or a place to put one. if you bugging out, you need spare
Camera mount - first real tight spot and buh bye camera

rest looks real good, and sometimes it can be the best ladder there is

Correction on the fuel cell, I changed that in the original post. I have a few suction cup camera mounts that I was moving around to just check things out, did not plan on keeping it there always. The rust is minimal for a XJ solid floorboards and all the normal XJ locations. I am fortunate and this is not my DD I have a 2004 Subaru Impreza STI and also 2009 GMC pickup. My wife drives a 2006 Trailblazer. I dont have any problem with the Shackles, they are flipped to enable the stretch. The leafs are a 4inch Pack. I would love to have a diffrent rear bumper along with a tire carrier, the axle builds will be first though! Thanks for the suggestions and input!


I loved the Ladder


Here are a few camera angles I was testing...

Just came across a heck of a deal on a set of sterling 10.25/kingpin 60 for 100 bux on Craigslist will pick up this weekend! Both tubes are shaved down and neither have R/P or carrier they have shafts though

Looks like I am going to re think the axles now... any suggestions?

They just flipped the rear shackle and re did the shock mounts, which did not last. I am in the process of coming up with an entire drive train revamp...
