3 Attachment(s)
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

Hell yeah, good find man. Looks like a good starting point for after your TJ gets rock ready

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

How come you always buy jeep with the fog lights broken?

Bad wiring and they're just harbor freight lights

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.

DezertTJ 03-15-2012 11:21 AM

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

So ur trying to say you're spending money on XJ upgrades rather than TJ? Hmm some may have seen this coming :rtft:
