c im not sure if i have the dual catts or not... i no there are the 2 things by the block, but i no i only have a single cat... and that is what i plan on doing a banks header/downpipe into a FM 40 dumped before the rear

Yup you gues it. I messed with the window again. I cant figure out how its bound up, and there is no way of getting the glass out. My next step is useing my dremel to cut the crank outa the door, and figureing out why it wont turn now.... ( I love me jeep.... but wish I could shoot it sometimes)

Otherwise I let the girl drive it today, and she managed to rip the airdam off the front on a snowbank. Shes a good girl. Just a terrible driver lol.

It all depends with how many other upgrades you're planning. If you're planning a lot then I'd definitely go with the 35's.... if you're like me and NOT throwing a ****load of money into your XJ then stick with a good set of 33's

alright...how about at least some stats of it then? You need to pick up a cheap XJ HEEP as well, so you can still hang out in here with us

I don't get it.... I mean... I LOVE my XJ, but I f'n loved my TJ too I don't understand this all or nothing attitude. "XJ's are the greatest and you can't like anything else..." Why? What's wrong with TJ's and CJ's. I'd LOVE to add a TJ or CJ to my fleet

I dont have a problem at all with the TJ. It's just that everyone here has a special place in their heart for the XJ. It's not that a TJ or anything like that would be a bad decision or anything.

It's like being in love with an overweight girl, but dumping her for a hotter girl. Heck yea it seems like an upgrade, but dammit it's just not the same.

Can't blame you there. I've always wanted a YJ, myself.
