Here are two of my XJ mods, the first is a cargo organizer and built in tool box for the cargo area and the second is a hitch mount rear tire spare carrier. I just like building things and the XJ is a great platform for ideas. Really enjoy this thread on the Forum and visit it often.
I wrapped my intake with insulation and then insulating tape. I also cut a larger hole in the front of the airbox. Now I'm getting air that is 50 degrees colder coming through my intake. I don't know the performance/gas mileage ramifications yet, but I imagine I've improved my mileage.
Now this is got to be a joke. No way just insulating the rubber intake will you net a 50 degree drop. Where did you get this number? Are you using a scan tool with IAT's on it?
I can't believe what people do to intakes and think they are actually helping. Like the first page with the aluminum wrap on the intake.

I want to see the interesting cb mount on the first post, but the pics just come up as a little X. Nothing I do will get these to load, I really want to see cb mounting ideas. Can anyone help?
I just used 2 corner braces that I picked up from Lowes since my CB didn't come with a bracket.

This works way better than putting it between the seat mounting brackets on the left side and its also totally free.
Escape Hammer Mount:
I know this is totally overkill, but I got the gadget for Christmas and I figured why not? It came with a mounting bracket, but that was bulky and required drilling holes in my console:
Trunk Milk Crate:
I had the bungee on the floor of my car, and I found the crate at the bottom of a local lake I just ran the bungee through the side of the crate and hooked either end on to the metal luggage ties on the floor.
hey so i need a 3" lift or bigger in 4 days....how do i do it?
i also need the rear coil spring lift kits so idk how that affects it?!
but any sort of help would be mucho appricado....
4 days? It can be done but why rush it? You will dive into it say tomorrow and then you run into trouble... Like broken bolts in the rear leaf. You'll also need an alignment. Then you wont make it out on Saturday. Wait after then you can start your build. You'll be surprised on what your stock XJ can do. Check your PM..
