Axles! Haha
From what I've seen xj's need a lot of work to compete with tj's but I could be wrong maybe they were horrible drivers. But for a DD it would be great, it just wouldn't get chicks like your Tj would

They may do bumpers I thank they said custom fab work too. Check em out!

Good point. But I know what would. A black JKU Rubicon sittin on 37's wrapped around the new black AEV Pintlers. . But thats a little more than an xj or axles lol.

We've got two XJ's in the family, they are great on the trails and in the snow, nice and warm in the winter and look good mildly lifted with soft-8, a roof rack and driving lights too. Plus they are giveaway priced because of the 16 mpg gas mileage thing. We have class 3 hitches on ours and they can tow!

I was board yesterday and had some subs layen around.... (see pictures)

It took about 45 minuts but i see a mini project coming...
I want to put a plug under the dash so i can un-plug my subs, amp, everything and just lift them out.
I really dont listen to music lould when I wheel because I need to hear my spotters and stuff. I also want to put a swich in my dash so i can turn off the amp when i dont feel like blasting my ears off.

Do you have an aftermarket head unit? Mine has sub controls where I can either turn the volume of the subs up or down or turn the amp off all together. Or just turn your bass way down and leave the volume down.

I Was worried about that too. That's partially why I'm making it easy to unplug. The only place my jeep stays is my garage or occasionally school, which is filled with cameras and supervisors on golf carts... Other than that its on the dirt and the subs will be left at home

my jeep has seen better days... I had a blast though! I went up to cleghorn with rozco and his friend. I could have prevented breaking another hood latch. I thought i could take that knotch though. I ended up backing out because i didnt want to bend my fender any more then it was and my jeep wanted to go on its side
