Once I get the winch installed it will be a lot more fun to take out. I will be the one to volunteer to get all the JK's out of the hole they ran into. I have had a good time with it. I really wish I lived closer to some of the trails that I see on here.
Nice build thread. Scope mine out under the general build area...you could give me some ideas? You have done some sweet things. That is the same bumper I was looking at for mine. I am not too keen on how they bent the tubes for the guard, but it seems to be the best coverage for one with a winch. May I ask if you got a deal on it? What are you doing for a rear bumper? I want the tire carrier, but man they want some green backs for them.
Great lookin XJ, im right down the road from you, i live a little further south, but work in Alvin throughout the week, we need to get together sometime, maybe Twin Peaks?
That would be fun. I am just down the street from the Twin Peaks in Webster. There is also a local XJ club that I am part of on Facebook, Houston Cherokee Club, you should check us out. We are setting up a run to Creekside in the end of September.
Right on, request sent for the group, id love to take a wheeling trip somewhere, ill get in touch with you sometime in the near future and see what we can work out
I think that I am going to do a short night time beach run with another group on Saturday down by Rollover Pass if you wanted to go. Meet at the pass at 6pm. I think that I am the only XJ in that group.
Well it has been a while since I have posted on here. I have been working crazy hours and have had little to no time off during the weekend. I was however able to skip work today and go to a local off road park today with my Houston Cherokee group. We ended up with 15 XJ's.
I was able to test out the new front bumper. Went up a steep incline and slide towards a good size tree and hit the d-ring mount on the bumper. It also turned my passenger fender into a pre-runner fender.
I hit the tree that is right up the passenger fender in this pic.
Here is a video of teX-J going down a steep slope. He had a little bit of pucker during that little run.
