My RCX track bar rod end is finally beyond serviceable and since both IRO and RCX claim their track bars are not compatible. I will be ordering new track bar....double shear kind.

My trackbar is also in bad shape. It gives terrible bumpsteer, probably due to it being 2" shorter than the draglink now. I drilled out the frame side mount to take a 5/8" bolt, so going back to stock style is not an option unless I replace that mount.

My windshield also cracked mysteriously while I was at work. It slowly becomes more turd-ey everyday!

I may order a ruffstuff trackbar kit. They are having a nice 25% off sale right now.

It did suck. Pump started growling monday... thought for sure I'd make it to the weekend. Nope. Jeep had other plans. Took me 2 hrs because the fitting on the high pressure line was seized to the line so it wouldn't spin without kinking the line. Had to dismantle the pulley, bottle, and return line from the pump so I could spin it to unscrew it... then I had to do the same thing to put it back together... I was fed up. Pain in the ***.

I almost bought the HID headlight kit with projector housings, but I'm glad I didn't. Just seems kinda janky. And ricey. I remember the pic Texsun posted way back when one of his was burned out, and it was horribly glaring in the rain. Ain't nobody got time for that.

I drove my Xj to work ( finally started my new job) I work with a bunch of like minded gear heads , We were all standing around after our shift and one guy asked me if I wanted to race his 76 nova I said sure we can do a 10 mile race, you pick the first 7 miles I'll pick the last 3. He came back pretty confident in that head start huh. So I showed him pics of the last 3 miles he declined One guy thought it would be hilarious to watch a nova try to climb a granite waterfall with 3 3' tall ledges on it lol.

Are XJs high in your area? $4k seems kinda ridiculous.


Ordered new bumpstops and a double shear track bar from IRO. I've got some extra birthday money still, I'm kinda debating getting some of their adjustable LCAs next week. Not sure if I wanna do those or my 2x6 rockers first. Finally got the plasma cutter working last week and it's retarded how much easier it is to cut through 1/4" than with a grinder lol
