Yeah I think reversing stock leafs would probably be better, those stick out a bit too far for my liking, though if you had a tire carrier on that bumper it would help keep things away from the mounts potentially. Either way it looks damn nice with the stretch, can't wait to see how it does on the forklift.

Got it on the road last week which was awesome. A local shop made me a drive shaft which took a couple days because they had to order new tube but while I waited for that I picked up a brake hose off of a dakota which is 6" longer than the xj's.
Went to Firefly over the weekend with some friends and came home to my new shaft threw it on and took her for a spin.
did some flexing at home for kicks and giggles today




Tomorrow I'm going to get the e-brake hooked up with the new brackets I made. Sometime this weekend I want to measure for shocks in the rear and plan a way to mount them. Probably make some bumpstops, the bumper isn't getting in the way of flex which is nice as soon as the leaf springs hit the bumper they are completely flat.

Very nice.... The 35s almost look small with how much room you have

Just finished reading your thread , your XJ has done a lot of evolving since you started out . Really nice looking fab work , curious to see what you do with the front fenders . And what are you going to do with the 35s ? Are you going taller ?

Took some measurements for shocks by flexing on some stuff around the house. Rear tire fully stuffed measured 19.5" and fully flexed was 29". For the front fully stuffed was 16" and flexed was 26". I need to take away an inch or so from the measurements because I haven't made the mounts yet. I figured out how I will do it in the rear just haven't bought some tube for it, going to use 1" tube for top mount. Probably going to pick some tube up tonight for it. Not going to do anything about the front shocks for a bit because I will probably make hoops for them just measured to see what it was.

Saturday I ordered some 5125's for the rear from Kolak who was a great help and If any of you need shocks I recommend sending him a pm. Hopefully shocks will be in soon, I made up mounts for them and all that they need is to be welded up. This is pretty much it minus the 5125's and lower mount .

I also put KM2s back on and they just look so wimpy

Yesterday I re-torqued some steering and suspension parts and adjusted the steering box some which actually made a huge difference. I had a lot of play in the steering before. Also filled in some pesky rust holes.

Worked on it all evening and night just now finished. I put on black magic brakes and pads, bilstein 5125's, refitted the fuel cell, and put the creepy crawlers back on to go wheeling this weekend. Fingers crossed I can go wheeling got most of everything done but still a slight chance I won't be able to make it. If anyone In the area is interested the plan is to go to rausch creek this saturday.
