Im glad to see you still have this jeep, I have always liked this one. Seems like all the guys building XJs when I was building my green one have either gotten rid of them or stepped up to chopping them to bits.

thanks man. i absolutely loved your green one. i dont think ill ever part ways with my XJ, except maybe to get a newer 97+ to swap the parts over

went wheeling yesterday











and in doing so, i caught my slider sort of underneath a large rock which proceeded to rip off the slider


so the plan now is to replace the rockers with 2x6 box, take the side tube off the JCR sliders and use those and resell the sliders to recoup some of the money. the slider is fine, it just ripped out the 8 self tappers and the 5 bolt holes in the pinch seam were just ripped. i mean i COULD just get bigger self tappers and drill new holes for the pinch seam, but its a good excuse to do the rockers

i also managed to scrape my exhaust and break some welds at my muffler. have a nice exhaust leak now too.


also, forgot to mention, i replaced my front RE 4.5" coils with the RE 5.5" coils. MUCH better. they are a better height and a stiffer ride. the 4.5" coils were too soft for me. now i just need to remove my ACOS. its sitting a little too high for me right now.

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

and a couple videos.

this was a bad *** XJ. chopped top with the back of a comanche cab, exo, HP44 ARB, 9" Detroit, 35's blah blah blah.


and me going up the same spot. took me about 15 minutes and some careful spotting. i kept getting hung up on my drop brackets, first time i ever have been hindered by them. got some good airtime though

well i decided that i wanted to have a swaybar again. after adding the rack and having weight up there i feel its time. i dont NEED to but id feel more comfortable having one. especially if someone else needs to drive. have RE gen II discos and JCR axle side brackets waiting to go on. just need to actually get a swaybar now.

very soon ill be replacing my radiator as well as taking out my A/C condensor and related stuff. it barely works and i never use it. why not increase airflow to the radiator?

i also have leaf bushings to replace. just need time!!

when you weld the JCR brackets on, have the sway-bar connected to them first and the links adjusted where you want them, level the axle to the jeep.

then tack both the brackets on. that way, they are the same height

no worries. I wish I had done that with mine. we just eye-balled it and the sway-bar links had to be adjusted slightly to make it fit. not sure if it matters.

FYI, your bumps arrive monday.

I'm sure they can be cut down. my Prothane rear bumps are a lot longer than I thought.

Well I replaced my radiator on Saturday and in doing so I removed my A/C stuff since it barely worked and only blocked air flow to the radiator. I think im going to get an inline filler neck so i can get rid of my plastic pressure bottle. Also got all my bumpstops delivered.
