XJ MOPARish Builds

So right now Im buying stuff and fixing stuff to look factory....ish. Basically Id like to see some XJ's with 2" or more lift, some kind of factory or close to it wheels, not cut up, front and rear bumpers approved. Ive searched and cant find anything really thread-wise. So if you have a picture or know of an XJ with a MOPAR style build, lets see it. I love the stock build look and want to see if that road is worth traveling.

The newest XJ's are not the best. The last 3 years, '99,'00,'01, are likely to have an 0331 aluminum head that is prone to heat damage.
Also, IMO I prefer the pre-'96 body. The '97+ have sheet metal missing where the bumper endcaps reach all the way to the flares. This is the pre'96 configuration.

Yeah I had a 96 before and it was pretty nice to wheel. Ive already replaced the head in mine haha. Went out shortly after I bought it.

Mines cut up a little bit buy it is 97+ and on stock wheels. I try to keep it clean, almost like a perfected stock look with some protection ha.
