I'm guessing 750-800.

Better to be impressed than disappointed.

Got a picture? That sounds too easy.

One of those Zerka busted out if the fiberglass in the back and in not sure how to fix it..

I was mistaken. What I have are ZJ hatch struts. Nonetheless, they have a bracket attached to the strut by johnny joint, and a pivoting reciever (like XJ struts) on the other end. The only piece I don't have for each one is the male end that goes on the body

Hack N' Tap has yet to make it's way onto the XJ.


Might be time for me to go buy a welder, I keep eying up tube fender flares, and with the armor I have on the quarter panels I could just integrate them.

I'd go for a lincon of Hobart 110v with shielding gas.

Nah, but seriously considering a welder, found a website that sells pre-bent XJ tube flares with no sheet metal. Might just cut the rockers out and do 4x6 and bring it all together.


ie:
Tube flare welded to quarter panel armor and rocker

Might not though, as if I ever need to change something it's going to suck.
