Thanx man! It settled about 3/4" so its just about level now. Gonna take the front coil insulators out and put in a 1" spacer, adjust the long arms to move the axle forward a hair, and add some bump stop and I should be rub free.

Beautiful jeep. I will be getting the same lift kit. What back spacing do you have on there? Did you like the Rubicon Kit?

Wow those pics are a real throwback! Can't believe how long I've had this jeep. Just turned 90k this week!

The only thing left from the original RE kit is the rear springs and the front brake lines lol! Everything else has been either upgraded or broken and replaced. All and all I liked the kit. Just wish I would have went with a long arm 6" that I have now... woulda saved me some $$$. And those wheels are 4" BS. The ones I have now are 3.75. Both work fine.

Looks good man, If you go to sell it just know a few years down the road you may kick yourself for parting ways with a under 100k clean XJ.

Well the time has come to get rid of the old girl. The wife's Jeep is paid off so it's my turn to get a new one. Don't wanna do 2 payments so when mine is paid for she'll get a new one. Ive been dealing with craigslist high school kids, no shows, and tire kickers all week. What a PITA. People are ridiculous. Hate dealing with it but it's still better than what dealerships are offering me in trade!! If all goes as planed I'll be driving a JK shortly I REALLY hate to get rid of it but all good things come to an end!

6K. I think it's a fair price for the miles (94k)it has and what I have into it. KBB has it at 6800 in fair cond. I don't think I'll get that, but we'll see. Only 1 person looked at it so far. He was dead set on buying it but his wife wouldn't let him lol! So glad I'm not married to a woman like that!

I don't think that's a bad price at all. My '92 has over 250k miles on it and is a complete HEEP, but I have so much money into it I would be giving it away if I sold it. It would probably be much better if I part it out when I sell it. I have contemplated man, MANY times over the past few years. Since I moved to PA 2 years ago I have only driven it, illegally, 2-3 times and that was last Winter. I still have a few things to finish up, but time is very limited to devote to projects. I should probably just sell it and let someone else actually use and abuse it.

Yeah that's a super fair deal. We payed about $5,000 for a (stock) 2000 Classic with like 165,000 miles haha. You'll definitely get quite a bit for a super low mileage xj like that.

And she's gone! I felt like the Indian crying on the side of the road as I watched the new owner drive away in it last night! Felt like I was giving away my dog... so heartbroken!! But on to bigger and better things. I now have this to play with...



It's 2012 altitude edition or some crap. 6spd 3.6 with 3.76 gears. I love it so far. They said it has a 3" lift but I think it's only 2... Do sent matter I'm gonna replace it with a 3.5" and 35s. Gonna try to keep this build more street worthy....TRY!

Yep sure is. Some guy from west newton bought it for his kid. Now there's some 18yr old punk beating the hell out my labor of love lol! No, he's seemed like a cool kid and I think he'll take care of it.
