Project high school build!
 
Hi guys im going to be making a build on my xj. I'm in the market right now for a 4 door xj. Hoping to get some subscribers now so when I get it and start the work I can get some input. I built a cj5 last year. Will post a before and after pic. Blew the motor up in the Cj, got pissed off, and decided I wanted a xj. Hoping to have the xj through college as well

XJs are good vehicles. I am a teenager building a WJ. They are fun to work on!

Sweet man. Biggest problem for me is coming up with money. I usually have to take parts off and sell them before I can buy new parts to replace them. Hopefully my xj will treat me well

Back to the xj I'm looking for a 4dr 4.0 with an auto and np231. Love manuals but I need an auto for convenience and to many times I had to have a friend move my Cj and couldn't do it because they couldn't drive stick. Plans for the xj are to keep it a little more simple than the Cj but still badass. Planning on a 6.5 inch lift and 33 inch boggers. Probably some black eaton beadlock wheels. Going to decide on bumpers when I get it but I have a winch already. Thought about using my corbeau seats but I sold them because I'd rather have money to get the xj. Going to put my pioneer radio in it and get some subwolfers. My budget is $4000 to buy the xj and then will probably spend every penny on it after that. It's going to be a DD/wheeler. Probably going to get a ford 8.8 and keep the Dana 30. Get some 4.56 gears and most likely just weld the rear spider gears. Stay posted to see what my new jeep will look like. I've looked at a couple but I'm looking for a reliable start and they weren't it. Will keep you guys posted

So I think I have found the jeep I'm getting. It's about 6 hours away from me in Kentucky. It's got a 3.5 inch lift and 31s. 102,000 miles and its in good condition. Warn rock sliders that are in good condition and a cargo rack inside with a full size spare. All for 3000. What you guys think?

Went to look at another today that found out was in an accident and had an abandoned car title signed my a cop. Drove like some ***. No castor at all and it felt way to plush and just drove horrible. I NEED to get a jeep. I'm having withdrawals. Might get a zj. Found one for sale for 4500 with a 6 inch long arm and nice tires I think are 33s it's white and I think it's a 4.0.

Obv. Watch for the 0331 head in 00-01 xjs

Zjs are cheaper then xjs around here idk why.
I know your young and so am I but do you really want to weld your rear end on a dd? Assuming it will be your dd.

Yea zjs are cheap here to. And I did it to my Cj. It chirps a little but I'm not planning on NASCAR turns in my jeep so it's not to bad.
