The White Jeep Build

Well first off, I name all my jeeps by color hence the name of the thread, simple right? I currenlty have four jeeps: 95 XJ, 93 XJ, 88 XJ, and 84 CJ-7. This thread will be about the 95 XJ. I bought it in October of 09 with a 3in "lift" utilizing 1''+2'' spacers up front and 1.5" home made block and 1.5'' shackle with stock shocks front swaybar links broken on ford ranger tires and wheels. The main plan for this one is a capable weekend wheeler that i can drive cross country. i have the other three to get crazy with lol

Current specs are:
4.0L 153K
AW4
NP231
D30/C8.25 (27sp)
4DR
Manual doors/windows (which i now prefer after the wiring disater that PO of my 88 bestowed upon me)
RC 3in coils
RE Superflex LCA's
RE GenII disconnects
bastard pack+ 1.5 shackle
RC nitro 9000's
2 hella 500's on the bumper
4 Baja lights across the top on a home made roof rack
235/75r15 treadwright atg's

Hear are some pic's of when i bought it(after the tires/rims:

After lights


Next stage of the plans are to ditch the block/shackle setup with either the bastard pack i made or my RE 3.5 leafs i have waiting(need stock shackles that aren't rusted through.
Extended Rear brake lines
C4x4 tow/brackets off the 88
steel gas tank skid,
T-case skid
rear hitch off the 88
get all the maintence up date
CB
Reverse lights
Treadwright 31"mtg's either stock wheels with spacer or Soft 8's
plus other stuff i forgot to add (i have list somewhere.....)


enjoy

this is why blocks + stock leaf springs on a cherokee can be a bad idea





she isnt sitting on all fours yet. last week i noticed some brake squeal, so i checked the drums while the wheels were off. there isnt much left of the drums or the shoes so im gonna replace them since ive got it all taken apart and im extending the brake lines.

I haven't been able to do much lately with work and all the snow we got this year. Mostly catching up on maintenance items.

Since I'm planning on going to the Jeep Jamboree up at Drummond Island this June, I needed to get a few major things done.

Installed my c4x4 hooks and pick this up on craigslist today:


installed:



I'm probably gonna pull it back off this weekend and recesses to add lights, weld up the ends and repaint it

today i went to the jy to pick up headlight bezels to relpace my broken ones, ending picking a set of factory skids also.


the front skid is bent and has tow hooks welded to it, so it will need some work

well today i did some work on the skids. the gas tank skid had a huge dent that needed pounded out and the front skid will need a lot of work to get back into shape. I also found one those stock tire carriers when i was out, if anyones insterested in let me know and i'll snag next time i go out.

thanks Ct157167

Since i'm gonna be ordering new tires next week hopefully, either 30's or 31's. i stack up some logs while i was doing some yard work. So i took a little break to test the flex and cycle the suspension to see if i needed to adjust anything as far as bumpstops. I extended the rear brake line when i installed the packs so ive got plenty of lieway. i just bent the hardlines up front still have a few more inched of droop left if need be. I need to get new/longer bumpstops in the back so i wont invert the springs. heres few pics.....

still connected:




disco'ed
