Suspension: 3" RC coils, Clayton track bar w/ bracket, RE LCA's, full length add a leaf in leaf packs, 10" trashed RC hydros all the way around, out boarded rear shocks via hoops

Wheels/Tires: 35X12.50X15 Pro Comp M/T's wrapped around 15X8 D windows w/ 3.75 BS

Other Notable Modifications: LCA mini skids, IRO OTK steering, 2x6 rockers braced into HD Engineering frame stiffeners, JCR gas tank skid, ORS stubby bumper, completely flat crossmember/trans skid/transfer case skid

Best Trail Damage: Using the passenger side door to pivot off of a rock to make a climb

Build Thread: ibjeepin95's 99' XJ Build

Optional: I've always wanted an XJ to be able to drive to a location, wheel it hard, and drive it back home in one piece. I'm getting really close to having it how I want it, but I still have a little ways to go. So far it's crawled, flew, and has been driven down the highway smooth as silk. I couldn't ask for too much more out of it on stock axles and 35's.
