Shopping for an XJ - Seeking some opinions regarding my build
Well, I've been Jeepless for about 2.5 years now. Shortly after graduating, my new boss asked me to get rid of the Wrangler for a more professional car. Eager to succeed, I obliged and the Wrangler was replaced with a BMW 540i. I no longer have that job, hate the old boss and despise the BMW.
I've been shopping for an XJ for about two months now. All the good finds keep getting sold from under me. I still plan on waiting it out and below is the planned build. Please critique my thoughts.
I plan to run 265/70R17s on about 2'' of lift- less if I can get away with it. I'll be trimming the front along the fender line and cut-n-folding the rear. I'm not exactly sure how to accomplish 2'' of comfortable lift without spending a fortune. OME rides well, but I would like an adjustable trackbar. That puts me at nearly $1k. I could accomplish alot more with the money at places like IRO with a 3'' kit. Thoughts in this aspect?
