93 xj new first build

This will be my first build. I'm going to list just about everything so this may be a long post. Currently it's sitting on 2.5 inch coil spacers and 2-2.5 inch rear shackles which were donated by a friend. Tires are 235x75x15 with crager D window 342 wheels.

Stage 1. I opted for the RC 4.5 x series, as it incudes the adjustable LCAs and UCAs, adjustable track bar w/ disconnects, and new brake lines. It's only a $150 more than the other and includes way more. It wil sit on 33x10.50x15, either BFG all-terrains or BFG Mud-terrains. I am leaning toward the km2s, however am unsure about loss of milage. soon after i will install SYE.

Stage 2 will be engine and performance mods. Including magnaflow exhaust(good sound, and no chambers), high flow air intake(k&n or airaid), TBS, upgraded ignition, and i'll probably chip it.

Stage 3 is interior. New seats, headliner, sound system, steering wheel, etc. All things to basically recondition and make it look nicer.

Stage 4 will consist of a safari rack, steel bumpers with di rings and winch mount(fabricated by my buddy and myself) lighting, new paint, and tinted windows.

Stages 2-4 will most likely be pieced together and/or switched around. I'm not really worried about recouping my costs as I do not see myself selling this rig. I plan on having it for a very long time, when it dies i'll drop a new engine in it. already found a company that make OE engines for less than two grand, www.powertrainproducts.net. Sorry for the length and here are a couple pictures.
