Truthful opinion, eh? Well, I think it looks absolutely horrid. It's too white, the tires are too big (and they match mine...), the suspension isn't scratched up, it's too clean, and most of all, it looks just too awesome.

That's a mean looking XJ right there. Looks friggin' great! How long did everything take to get hooked up and put on? Now, however, we really do need to work on the whole cleanliness aspect. Not to mention putting a cap or something on your fenders. That looks like it hurt...

I think you need a few more bolts attaching the LA bracket. And I second Arlo's question.

ive had my jeep for 8 months! im 16 and starting school and stuff so its hard saving money but everything you see here did come out of my pocket! ive been probably wokring on it hard for last 3 months though and took a lot of money (which i dont have anymore)! i think i might get some speacial tape stuff or something so it doesnt happen to me again!


thanks

For that sharp edge go to a good auto supply or accessories store and pickup a role of door edge guard. This will work well to put over the sharp edges. You can get black, clear, chrome.

so is it sitting now till them or do you expect 4 bolts to take the strain of the front suspension stress.not wise if thats the case.

don't forget to use cruch sleeves when you do add those 3 other bolts


also looking at the picture again are the front mounts still in the way? also why do they not look right ? like they have been cut off and moved down a few inches................
