what a difference the little lift makes on the looks. Nice XJ, I had an old one and loved it.

Thanks man! I absolutely love the XJ's than again I love every Jeep I see. Yes the BB does my a huge difference from stock, even getting driving it and the flex is way better. My plans for the future are 4.5 but I have no money to buy it right now, maybe in a year or 2. For now BB is going to be perfect for the kind of wheeling I do. I want to get different wheels though I want something offset.

I didn't think spacers changed flex... But either way, it gets everything except your axle farther off the ground and looks way better! And allows you to run bigger meats without rubbing on everything

haha oh yeah I could probably fit 31's now without cutting the fenders. As far as the flex goes maybe it's just me.

Looks good to me. Dad has an upcountry edition with 250K and that thing is capable as none other from the factory and what was what got me into Jeeps!

Personally I wouldn't have painted the grill but everything else looks choice my man.

Well I got a call from a friend saying omg are you ok, and I said yeah.... why? She said because I just saw your Jeep and it's rolled. I said I'm looking at my Jeep right now it's perfectly fine, she said I know this is your Jeep. So I went to the location where she was at and sure enough this happen.

















At least the JK bumper held up that I built for it. I guess the kid I sold it to was drifting with out the sway bar connected around a cliff side and lost control and went over. Rolled about 4 times before the trees caught the Jeep.

You have a nice build going there. Seeing these XJ's definitely brings me back to the days I had mine. I sold mine last last December. Sucks to see what happened to your old ZJ.

Thanks AJeepZJ, Yeah I was in shock when I saw it. Never knew it would end up like that, I guess the kid got seriouly hurt but is recovering. I've always wanted an XJ and now that I have one I'll pry never get rid of it. It's awesome. The ZJ's do amazing offroad though and I have to admit a nice ride lol. I'll miss it.

I've thought about it but honestly there is no saving it, the unibody is wrecked bad and I wouldn't even know where to start. There are some parts on it that are good still so I'm going to the junk yard today to see what I can buy back.
