98 xj build

Well this is my first xj. I've wanted one for a while now. I bought it 1/25/2013 bone stock. So far I installed a rough country 6.5" x-flex system with 1.5 " pucks, control arm drop brackets, shackle relocaters, slip yoke eliminator, brake lines, r/c 9500lb winch and winch bumper. Today I ordered ironrock offroad hd tierod, hd tracbar with drop bracket and extended front bumpstops. I will post pics.

well i pulled the side molding since it was already peeling. washed and waxed it once i got the old tape and residue off. i think it looks better without the molding.

Good idea the side moldings gay! Haha I did tat and rhinolined it. I really wish I would have got a long arm kit. But I'm limited to my high school budget. And my works slow till spring. But maybe ill buy one. Hah

Coming along well. Did you ever finish the rear bumper? Did you home brew it or buy it from a vendor? I am looking for bumpers. Keep up the good work man.
