98 XJ from Europe ;)

Hello Jeep Maniacs. Greetings from Poland. I really love all of Your Jeeps that I have seen on forum so I would like to introduce You my XJ 1998 r. 2,5 turbo diesel VM.







And now short description:

2,5 td is an italian engine designed for Iveco and Alfa Romeo but also has been installed in european version of Voyager and Jeep -XJ and ZJ. It has 118 HP but generally speaking this engine is piece of S&#t.. It has independent headgascket for each cylinder So I'm seriously thinking about the swap - for oryginal 4,0 L or 2,9 td from Mercedess Sprinter.

What You can see on the pics is:

Bumper made by our local pruducer plus my home made bullbar.
Snorkel - "Airflow", designed for 2,5 td. As You can see its on the other side than in 4,0 L.
Rack- Home made - nice and cheap
Bushwacker - domestic production made of fiberglass. Weak but cheap
Winch - 12 000lbs dragonwinch. Not bad and very cheap.
Side bars - Home made from Kit that I bought.
Body lift - 2 " - Ironman heavy duty springs - front and upgraded springs rear.I removed trackbar from rear, I also fited polyurethane bushings on the front trackbar.

Last Year I have painted whole jeep from underneath with epoxy paint for better protection against water and salt.

What will be done soon:

Rear bumper
More lights on the rack
And of course - 31 " tires

In a near future

4,5" body lift
Engine swap


Thanks for watching and I really hope You will like it


All is in the hands of man. Therefore you should wash them often.

Good looking XJ. 4 or 5 inches of body lift seems a little tall. Welcome to the forum

I think he means suspension lift. XJ's are unibody.

Go slow go far go fast never last.

Hello again !

I would like to introduce you my low budget, home made rocking levers for my XJ, for 0-2" lift.

Made from what I found on scrapyard. I also had to use some turning, cutting and welding skills. Polybushes are new, domestic production.

Total cost of 4 levers I estimate at 80 $.
