I appreciate the compliments and encouragement. I hope to her at least drivable again by Thanksgiving or at least that's the deadline the boss/wife has given me. I think she's getting tired of tripping over parts in the basement.
The evolving plan so far:
Front: '99 XJ D30 with 3.55 gears and Alloy USA diff cover and axle seals, 3.5" RE springs, RE Fixed UCAs and LCAs, ZJ steering box and tie rods, reworked RE sway bar end links, 28mm sway bar with Energy Suspension bushings, poly bump stops Daystar top and Energy Susp. bottom, Bilstein 5150 shocks with JKS mounts, Rugged Ridge ORV steering stabilizer, new UCA bushings, new ball joints and a ProComp adjustable track bar.
Rear: Chrysler 8.25 with 3.55's, HellCreek 4.5" Leaf packs for SOA, ZJ disc brakes and Bilstein 5100 shocks 5150's if I can find a deal on them.
Brakes: '95 Dual diaphragm brake booster and master cylinder, ZJ proportioning valve and re-plumbing the rear hard lines to do away with the load sensing valve.
Tires: Currently I'm planning to run a 265/75R16 (31.8") tires on Crager soft 8's that came off my XJ. I'm not really that fond of the tires and the tread is less aggressive than I want. I'm currently looking possibly to run 235/85R16s same height but not as wide.
Interior: I'm still scrounging for some seat belts, and I have most of the plastics to complete it. 2doorxj, I decided to go back with the bench when I found one with headrests on Craigslist. I could never find a set of buckets that fit my budget, and I kinda like the old school look of the bench.
Paint/Exterior: Colorado Red (stock color) with no huge decals. At this point I plan on using stock style bumpers. Factory roll bar, if I can find one.
