Ok well plans changed again, I bought another xj. I was cruising CL and an ad popped up for a 96 xj for $500. He had hit a ditch, bent the LCA and UCA on passengers side, but the unibody and body are still straight. Air bag went off but I am just gonna put on an aftermarket steering wheel. Got it for $300 so will be much easier than figuring out everything with the old jeep.










He has a front clip for it too but I think I might sell it and get a 97+ clip. I will be picking it up soon, not sure where I am gonna store it but I will figure something out lol.

Plans are 5" long arm lift, HP30 built/built 8.8, 4.56s, 35s or 37s, yadda yadda, build will start more soon as I sell the ZJ so someone buy the ZJ!

I did but I got it back haha. I now got rid of the clunk, had a weird hesitation so took apart the transmission and freshened it up, now shes back on the market. No idea where I am gonna put the new xj when I get it though.

Good to be back and thanks man yeah I can not wait to hit the trails again. Especially now that I can trailer the jeep to and from the trail. I have a radiator for it now too and a front fender plus I am buying an HP30 and 8.8 off a buddy so axles will be going under it soon too. Hoping to have it driveable soon enough

Yeah buddy I am officially back and now I have a build just like yours cause I picked up this one for $300 hahaha.

Almost mine. Paid the guy, brought it home and now just gotta transfer the title tomorrow but its in my driveway now. Went out and got it after work and towed it home with my dak. The truck loves pulling it. I feel it a little but does 65 on the freeway like a cake walk. Surprised me, hopefully it feels the same way with 600 more lbs of armor and tires haha

Got stuck in traffic on the way out. Let me tell you how much it is pulling a tandem in minneapolis rush hour..





Ready for home. I was wondering how I was gonna get it on the trailer, didnt think it would really drive with the missing LCA on the pass side but drove her right on up! She starts and runs fine and with a new axle, she will be able to DD if I want to





Heep





Completely clean rockers











Yay more traffic









Here she is at home. The guy I bought it from had hit a ditch which bent both passenger side control arms and shoved the tire into the floor. Frame is completely straight though, lower rad support took a hit but it came with a front fascia so all I have to do is get a fender and windshield (his head hit the windshield and cracked it).

But I am getting an HP30/8.8 combo next week and my lift is already half paid off (6.5" IRO long arm w/ OTK).

Here are the plans

-IRO 6.5" lift, long arms, 5.5" leafs, 1" shackle, doetsch tech 8000 shocks, no sway bars, braided extended brake lines
-HNT SYE, new seal flange, custom driveshafts
-HPD30, c-gussets, inner sleeve kit, IRO truss, 4.88 G2 gears, riddler cover, IRO HD LCA mounts, 760x u-joints with almost alloys, ARB air locker down the road
-8.8, IRO truss, HD u-bolt plates, 4.88 G2s, aussie locker, riddler cover
-35" Interco TrXus M/Ts or something similar
-IRO OTK steering and possibly hydro assist

-CAGE!!! <-- Most important part. After seeing how much a slow roll crushed my a-pillar, I dont even want to know what a heavy tumble would do. Thinking of doing a hybrid cage right now but havent decided. Also debating on doing some IRO sliders or cutting out my rockers and doing boat sides.

Either way, stay tuned, hoping to get it done by spring in time for some wheeling.

I'd love a new slate to start all over again with. Can't wait to watch this. Maybe your progress will help motivate me finish mine up. Lots to do.
