My '91 Briarwood XJ

Hey everyone. Just thought I'd introduce myself and my XJ. So here we go.

My grandparents bought it new from a dealership in El Paso, TX. They drove it for sometime then replaced it with a Saturn. My dad flew to Florida and brought it home. He drove it for a while, then got a BMW. Then my mother used it at her cookie store for making deliveries, but it was eating her business alive with gas prices, so it sat for a week or two, and then I got my license.

This is how I got it.



Changed a few things, got some 235/75/R15s and upgraded the stereo.



Drove it like that for a long while, then moved to Dallas from El Paso for school. Some time passed and got some 2" lift spacers and 1 3/4" lift shackles.




Tried on my roommates wheels (31x10.5x15 and less backspacing).


Rubbed like crazy.

Then scored some 30x9.5x15 BFG AT KOs with rims for $280. Didn't use the rims.




Then I got an OEM swing away tire carrier for $20 at a junkyard.



And I got her washed today.






Need to replace the rear springs and use smaller shackles. Otherwise, she'll be sitting like this for a long time. Got a CB Radio on the way.

Excellent XJ. I like to see the wood paneled XJs built up.

Thanks. Not sure why it shows the actual images, just the links but oh well. Haha. Can't wait to go bigger, but being a poor college kid that can't go wheeling very often, I have other priorities.

No better place to use my first post, I've been lurking looking at all the jeeps for a week or two now.

Had to say of those that I've seen that 91' XJ looks great. Really clean for a 91'

Btw, pics don't show up until after 25 posts I think?

Thanks. My grandparents garaged it a lot. I want a garage.

Haha I liked them too. Jeep didn't like the backspacing though. Haha.

I see the wood as antitheft.
