93 5 speed xj Build

Thought I'd start a thread. She's a little rough.
As of now sitting on 31s with 3 inch inch lift. Just replace shocks ( rear shock bolts always break so I punched them much easier don't waste time drilling).

took front flares off already I'll take the rears off when I get the 33s



Floors rotted out so Did some ghetto aluminum floor panels, I dont plan on putting the carpet back I might herculine it down the road

Got a tera flex BB to hold me over. so it'll have a total of 4.5" of lift.





Cut some holes to get to the shackles bolts, Been PB blasting them like crazy hoping to make it little easier, I doubt it'll help put its worth a try.



Got bored, the head liner was sagging so I ripped it out and wired in some speakers on the roof, got it out of the donor jeep



since I got a 27 spline in the rear I'm swamping the axles with auto so I have 3.55 gears to help with the 33s

Got a nates bumper, I assumed that it came with the wrap around because there was no option, I'm kind of glad it didnt because I hear you have to trim it anyway. I'll weld something up later. Got it primed and painted


Apparent Nate never heard of tape or just forgot this is how my hardware arrived, minus the hardware

If there's no damage on them (tears or cracks, etc), and they're wearing evenly, then they are definitely worth the 550.

Picture? Where is the crack- top of the lug or is it splitting the lug, or what?

Yeah, dude, I wouldn't worry about that at all... I mean, if it really bothers you that much, you could fill the crack with Shoe-Goo, but it shouldn't cause any problems. Thats a really good buy, to be honest, and that bumper looks good.
