So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

Got one of the new hatch struts in but the second isn't lining up and it was too cold outside to mess around for long. On my old ones the base that connects to the hatch spins, but on the new one it doesn't. So when the base side is lined up, the ball side is facing down instead of to the side. Is there a way to turn one side or the other or is something messed up with the strut?

Also, on my 96 there are no screws whatsoever, just retaining pins to hold the struts on. Seems a little sketchy to me, I almost took myself out after I didn't get the the retaining pin exactly in right and that side popped out when I started to mess with the other side.

Nope...

there you go 200 with free custom design and powder coat for an extra 20
didnt know if diy beadlocks interest you but with free custom design you can have a one of a kind rim

Got my bastard pack installed. Gotta order front springs to complete the setup. I installed the pack with the lift shackles and ended up having 4.5" of lift and the vibrations driving home were horrible!! I changed to the stock shackled I picked up and brought it down to 3.5" and it drives great! I couldnt get my struts in cuz on of the bolts broke and wont come out. Gonna try and find someone to weld in some bar pin eliminators for me this week. Here are a few pics with the 4.5" lift in the back, didnt get to take any pics with the stock shackles.


and I got it stuck trying out the new lift! Stupid D30 with and open diff. Looks like an axle swap is in my future.

Webdog - what happend to the tube fenders? Aside from the paint being a different yellow I thought they looked good.

I agreed to buy another '92 XJ for $350 today. It is all good, except no title and no front axle Not bad for a parts HEEP though.
