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.
im all about the OEM+ look... heres my 95, lifted with V8 grand cherokee springs with a BB spacer and quadratec HD leafs, TJ moabs with 31" mtrs, monroe shocks front and rear. threw some tow hooks on the front and a shackle in the rear and hung with some nice sized jeeps running blues at some of the better parks here on the east coast.... def OEM+ to me
