I guess... IMO 5:13s would be much better, most people are runnung 4:88s with only 35s. Those axles and tires are going to be some serious weight to move around unless you plan on being in 4low all the time...

4low unless I am going to get gas which is exactly 1 mile down the road. Trails are my back yard, I have 3 other vehicles for driving purposes.

1999 Cherokee Limited 72k miles Perfect Interior... I was planning on Purchasing an all Stock XJ and doing the build myself however my buddy was needing to get rid of his ASAP! Needless to say I got a killer deal on a well built Platform that I just drove 106 miles back to my house with the cruise control set at 75mph! I was actually very impressed with that by itself!

Rough Country 4inch SA Lift
Maxxiss Bighorn 35x12.50s
D30 high pinion Front with 4.10 gears and Detroit Locker
Chrysler 8.25 Superior 4.10 Gears Welded
SYE with new driveshaft
The Rear has been stretched to 112"
The Rear is also Comp Cut! which is what I wanted to do!
Fuel Tank in Cargo Area
CB/Antenna
Halogen Light kit that are REALLY BRIGHT!



I have ready to install...
Full rebuild kit for the d30 and 8.25
4.88s front and rear
Spartan Locker Front
Detroit Rear
Rustys Long Arm from my previous XJ!


Overall goal for this project is to keep it some what streetable but maintain the ruggedness of my lifestyle. My wife is actually the one that convinced me to get another Jeep so she supports me 110% We want to build this XJ to be prepared for the Bath Salt Apocalypse!


Now for the good stuff the photos! For any of yall that remember me... I spend allot of time wheeling so Look Forward to TONS more photos!





Great looking rig Tex. Looks like you guys are having lots of fun with it.

I'm really curious about your roof rack. I am looking for one just like that. Not too big and fairly narrow. Do you know what brand it is? I see it's not on in the last several pictures you posted. Any chance it's for sale?

Roof rack is now on a buddies WJ, I am in the process of fabbing up a little bit beefier and larger rack to hold more luggage for camping/hunting outings. I want to say the brand was either Thule, or warrior products.

check out this site for some GREAT DEALS on roof racks!

I think I figured out which Roof Rack you have Tex. It looks like a ROLA Vortex Luggage Tray. It appears they are made in Australia but who knows with the way outsourcing has affected the world.

I found one for $180 on etrailer Rolla Vortex Luggage Tray.

This is just what I'm looking for.

Overheated early this morning on the way to work, my best guess without an in depth look around would be the waterpump...

Thanks man!


Waterpump went out today, luckily I was only about 2 miles away from work! Highest the temp got to was 235-240ish still enough to piss me off!


First Up I drained and Flushed the radiator








Took the belt off, I didnt have to remove the fan shroud, radiator, brace or anything else besides the belt.







Got the old water pump off... everything seemed like it should work haha.










Threw it all back together and everything is perfect, I havnet seen the temps raise past 205
