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!

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.

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?
