Light bar came in! With the light bar on and headlights on, I can't even really see the headlights

Since the tj is now on 35s, the km2s moved to the xj, along with the alloys. In the past month, bilstein 5100s went in the front to replace the shorter rs5000s, and today I put some extended braided lines up front so I can actually flex it

Well here is the high point of the life of my XJ. 5.5" on 35s with JK Moabs




Yesterday I brought the lift back down to 3.5" and put the 255/75/17 km1s back on. After next weekend, I will be taking the rack off and placing both XJ and TJ up for sale. I am looking for an LJ or a low mileage XJ. This way I can stay with 1 vehicle and transfer my parts to that
