98 XJ -The TJ's brother build

Hey all, just picked up this 98 XJ on Thursday after selling my subaru. I wanted something that can handle snow, trails, and DD duty while the tj is being built.

Some specs on the rig:
3.5 rubicon express superflex lift
RE hack-n-tap sye
Tom woods shafts
RE gen 2 discos
31x10.5 falkens
Fake locks
HP30 and 35. Might be regeared, need to find out

Some pictures:

It needs a little work in the pinion angle and overall looks, but it'll do me well

The PO used a bent piece of metal to go across and have the lights mounted to that. I'm taking them off since they don't work anyways

Had to put the 31s back on. Traded for 32" big-o a/t's yesterday on eccos. I like the clean look. I need spacers though

Looks good! I think it's time for some fender trimming.

I may lift it an inch taller because I'm going to throw some stock fenders on there. Being in a snowy environment with no flairs really sucks
