She's looking good, So What are you working on doing to it now ?

My XJ will be done Phase 2 within the next month or so (4.56's/ Front locker ) Then I can move onto Phase 3 (Swingout/Longarm)

question... so what is the big deal about lift blocks? I recently threw a set in the rear of mine 2" and in all honestly my leafs are great condition and it rides just like stock still... not sure the big deal with Blocks is.

They provide no benefits for suspension other than raw lift height which usually isnt the goal in lifting in most Jeeps. Most the **** you hear about them os parroted misinformation though. I look at them the same as a body lift. Ok in small amounts for a little extra height, but I'd stay away from anything over 2".

Still have my sliders and front bumper to finish. New tires soonish (next 2 months or so) then axles. Still deciding on swapping an 8.8 or just keeping the 8.25.

I need to get around to bedlining it inside and out this spring too.

ok im running the 2" just until I can get my s10 packs in there, but honestly I just cant see how this 2" lift would change things that much, yes if they are stacked then that's another story.

Sounds like you have some work cut out for you.

Axle regearing is the only hard thing and probably the first thing I'll have someone else do on this build.

Ordered the wrong size spikes, but the tubes not here so I've got plenty of time to reorder them. Skulls are for the rear bumper, but the tabs/drings, and winch plate are for the front bumper. Need to call Arcet and reorder more gas for the welder at work, but hopefully I'll get the tabs and plate on this weekend.

Veryyyyyyy Nice ... I like those spikes... what size did you want?

Ballistic makes some pretty sweet stuff, from the looks of it.

Theyre tube ends to cap tube off. Ive got 1.75 pipe and ordered 1.25 for the caps. Not worth shipping back so Ill just keep em for something else.

Buy an old WWII pot helmet and a few more spikes that size and weld them as liberty spikes to the Helmet.
