Hey man, I know it's been a long time but do you have any more pics and/or specs of your old white XJ?
Just from the pics you posted it looks just like what I plan on doing with my new Jeep, even the same color.

Awesome build btw. I went through it last year and again over the last 2 days.

Thanks.

Thanks! I have the complete stripped chassis ready to go, still has the suspension, motor/trans/shifter installed, could sell it in different states if you are interested, might even be able to deliver it, will sell for CHEAP!

I'd love to pick it up but the last thing I need is another project! The friend of mine that I had talked with in the past about going halves on something like a JS or 7S or even a 1600 if we could afford it got stationed on the east coast so it's just not possible. Not to mention between the two vehicles pictured below that I already have as toys, the last thing I need is a 3rd toy as partial owner! LOL



And something more along the lines of your jeep... This was about 3 weeks ago!



And as of this past weekend... I'm in the process of 3 linking the rear end! LOL, like I said, projects! UGH!!!

Now I want to build a racer! For some reason I don't think my wife will be as motivated by the posted pictures as I am. Nice job on all the vehicles guys!

Great build, would love to see it in person. Too bad I'll never see any of those races in person

Where did you get your 9"? Did you have the extra work done to it or what truck was it out of?

I parted it out, and sold the rolling chassis with motor/trans axles etc, he is slowly building. I have two other trucks I am working on right now, very very slowly though.

Sometimes life get's in the way of our dreams. Feeding and clothing my kids was much more important than racing. I am building a 4-seat race legal truck right now, but alas, it isn't a jeep. Blashpemy, I know. Sorry to disappoint, I wasn't thrilled to do it, but it was the only option.

This has a lot of good technical info for plating and reinforcing XJs I think, but I will link it up when I get one going. I have been collecting lots of parts and not much to show yet. Thanks.
