So as you all may or may not know I have built a LCOG crawler



2.5-3 inches of lift and it flat out works.
I have mid arms and stiffeners for it but I think my new plans are wj uppers and new lower bushings for this winter.
Over the winter I'm debating wether or not to 5.0 it and I need a flex plate possibly for now big whoop.

Now I'm happy with my 35s but need some input on what to do with my build. I'm staying on 35s till these are spanked. So do I build a cage? Wheel it and not care? I dunno shoot me some ideas!

You said it flat out works. Burn the stiffeners in and just wheel it.

4:1 transfer case if you don't already have. Get the stiffeners in and maybe a cage. Durango steering box with WJ steering pump? Over knuckle steering? Rear discs?

Bronco 44 OTK steering check.
Stiffeners are this weeks possible job, No to the durango box. (Mines Drilled and tapped for hydro assist) WJ steering pump maybe. My drums seem to be working fine, I can stop on the proverbial dime. I am working on a semi flat belly but that is a long term project.
4.1 Would rock buttttt.... Thats a lot of money. Possibly going to do a Np231x2 Doubler.

Build a stroker motor. I found a XJ on CL with a FOrd 302 V8. Get more gearing do a dana300. Decide what you want your xj to be capable of doing than build it to fit. On another note- how do you like the red letters? Any snow experince

Burn your stiffeners in, 2x6 rockers, flatbelly X member, WHEEL. Do you even gotta ask?


Honestly, if nothing else, STIFFENERS. I cannot stress the importance.
