Patriot Blue build

So i figured i would make a new build thread. I didn't like the title and i didn't know how to change it. and my build was unorganized.
So it all started when i bought my 2000 XJ for 2,800 with 170,000 miles and still running strong. i got it on February 11th 2010. it was my first car. from then on i was addicted.
first thing i did was the usual.
changed the serpentine belt and the oil
i told myself that i wasnt going to lift it. haha
a couple months later i got a rough country 2" bb

a couple months went by and i was broke as hell. then on january 19th 2011 a miracle happened (i didnt think so at the time). i got hit on a snowstorm by a guy that decided it was ok to smoke week with both hands and drive with his knees in a blizzard. well i got him to admit to the cop that it was his fault in exchange for not ratting the little bastard out.
heres the damage
there is another pic of the bumper dented and the grill cracked but i cant find it

about a month later i order a 4.5 inch rough country lift. i got a deal cause i know a guy that owns a custom truck company
the back end is higher cause of the shackle angle. it is facing forward. i loaded the trunk up and jumped on the bumper. it is a little better. i am going to try and fix it and then bleed the brakes and get an alignment tomorrow. so that is where it sits now. i am going to get a deal on the new smittybilt bumper before it comes out cause of the gut that i know that owns the custom truck shop. he told me that i can get it pretty cheap so i am happy. after i get the alignment i am going to post some flex shots since i havent been able to do that yet
