You have some great pic's. I'm the opposite, I have TJ's and an XJ and by far love my TJ's. But my family is growing and will not drive a JK, Maybe the newer Toyota FJ.
Any who i think i want to mod my XJ. I dont mean to hi-jack/sidetrack your build thread, But have a couple questions about XJ's. Its a 97' with 8.25 rear 29 spline,D30 front and i think 3.54/5 gears. Both tags are shot. Its a country edition, and everything stock but BB. Is this a good XJ platform? The rear axle tubes seem huge compared to my D35 in the TJ.
But any help would be great, I know what i want to do kinda, But i have searched and want to know what leafs fit it for a little lift. Again sorry for the side track, Delete if not wanted in thread. Thanks

MOPAR!

thats a pretty awesome start actually. the c8.25 is way better than the D35, and stock the country has taller springs and better shocks. the 3.55 gears will be okay up to 33's I got 13-14 mpg city with my 3.55's. as far as lifts go I had the RC 3" series 1($490) and it worked awesome. I took the rear LCA's out of a ZJ or WJ and used them as my front LCA's so I could push my axle forward a little. trimm your fenders aslo because the 97+ came with smaller wheel well openings then the pre 96, it allows bigger tires and what not. also other mods are like removing the rear sway bar, better lights, and cutting the rear quarters, read my build thread in my sig (dirty betty) and see what ideas you get.
