Now time for some upgrades!!
First things first was to get rid of the little 30" tires and up it to 32's. So a buddy and i trimed the fenders to make room, and added some rock sliders.

So now that the easy part is done, next is some lockers and a taller lift.

So i got the lockers in and took my XJ for a quick test, and it performed well. The Spartans are quiet and don't load up and pop. Very smooth on the high ways and only a minor pull when reengageing when letting off the gas.

Well i got my lift, i am going to try and install it this weekend. I got the RE 4.5" super flex short arm kit with new rear springs.


For prep to make sure things go as smooth as it can, i am PB Blasting the piss outta the bolts on the suspension. My rig lived the first 5 years of its life in Ohio, so some of the nuts and bolts are rust badly. So far this week i am 2 cans into the hose down of each nut and bolt. Some of my buddies say i am wasting money on PB Blaster by using so much, but after seeing what a shop had to do to remove a hub from the front axle due to rust, eff that nonsence, i am going nuts on the prick.

Ok so i got the lift installed, and it sucked. It took a friend and i a week to install due to rust. I dont know how you rust belt guys do it! Any how, now that the lift is installed the t-case drop kit still needed to be installed, but i found that the bolts and studs wont move with out help. Since i now have a broken t-case cross member bolt broken i the frame with a broken ez out in that, i am going to buy a SYE and just get that installed and forget about how crappy the install went.

What it looks like at the moment.

Attachment 632108

To get my XJ home with no drop kit, i had to put almost 400 lbs in the cargo area to compress the rear springs to stop vibes.
