99 Xj Build

This will be my first build thread. I've have a bunch of jeeps up to this point and figured it's finally time to make one of these.

As it sat when it came home. Had and header on it but otherwise stock. After that came a BB and some 30x10.50s. And then wasn't happy with that soooo.

Did a little flex test need to trim it a good bit and bump stop it.

Had my brother bore a throttle body for me.

And got a Dynomax ultra flow.

Now I'm just waiting for my brother or brother in law to have one of there vehicles up and rolling to get a rausch trip test run.

Big plan would be waggy dana 44 front and Isuzu dana 44 rear swap. But not 100% sure yet cause it won't get bigger then 35s in the long run. Wanna make flares, skids and bumpers for it. Would also really like to build a 3-link for it.

Had it out to a local show today for a shop called Offroad central. Was an awesome turn out. Had it on the RTI ramp for the first time scored 772.
