Bedlined sides

I used duplicolor spray on, found at kragen, or pepboys.

I removed the trim, sanded and sprayed.

Aj's Sliders

Clevis, and finally a member.

And finally, a real lift.

Last post for now, trip to Hollister, it performed flawlessly, but I had to trim the flares after, they got ripped off. Thanks for looking!

stvnlo80 01-10-2009 01:10 PM

Great work so far! Add a couple of lockers....and you'll really love it!

WranglerRush 01-10-2009 01:37 PM

If I had an XJ I would want it to look exactly like yours. That thing is awesome. How do you like the RE and OME combo? I bet it rides great.

srmitchell 01-10-2009 04:01 PM

Thanks guys, yeah, lockers are in the works.

The ome re combo is amazing, stiff, but comfortable.

How you liking those autopals, got a set that should be here wednesday

solarrubi06 01-11-2009 07:17 PM

good lookin jeep

srmitchell 01-11-2009 07:32 PM

They're great, the beam pattern is perfect.

Most recent stuff.
Solid diff cover
Alloy usa x-joints

Trimmed t case skid that works with the drop, and sits higher than the x member. I drilled 2 holes in the x member, and drilled and tapped 2 holes into the unibody rail. Cost was next to nothing.

Nice XJ. How are you liking those AT retreads? I might grab a pair of the ATs or the muds. Do your ATs perform well in the mud?
