Got some more work done on the XJ this weekend.

This is pretty nerve racking to do



modified the breather to clear the truss





Got the truss set up and tacked on, I know I need about an inch longer bump stop. Otherwise the top of the truss is going to go through the oil pan. Time to figure out where the upper link bracket needs to go, and how long I need the arms to be

Started some mock up for the upper arm, using pvc for mock up so I dont accidentally cut my arms to short



before I messaged the floor, the upper link is very tight between the floor and the drive line

Arms are cut and welded, now putting the track bar together

3.5" Progressive Metalcloak springs, with how tall the truss is I'm guessing roughly 6" of lift. Apparently the rear will need more lift to match.






setting up the track bar





lots of bump stops to keep the upper link from smashing the floor

Threw the front tires on it just to see where its sitting, waiting on the pitman arm to hook the steering up. Front coils are dual rate metalcloak 3.5" springs. Overall this should only be 6.5" of lift over stock.

Well my bastard pack didnt work out like I had hoped, now looking at ordering some 4.5/5.5" RE springs




Not sure I will be keeping these beadlocks very long. Thing thing is wide!

Almost got everything painted, and I repacked my rear leafs again with some old RC springs from my YJ.



Close enough to level
