I believe it was this last sunday, I was lurking craigslist and found a friend of a friends XJ for sale, only knew it was him because I sold him a set of fenders, but anyways, seen this add for a 1999 Jeep XJ with 5.5" lift and 35's. Sooo curiousnous got the best of me, and I checked out the add. Kid wanted $5,000 which is ridiculously outta budget right now ha, so I gave him a call bsing around about trading him my truck, 10 min later, he wanted to trade. Talked about it for 2 days straight, and well, 5/2/2012 I brought home my new to me XJ.
I traded a 1979 GMC K10 4x4 that I had aquired through some trading, and some old audio gear from my first 03' WJ that I kind of grew out of sort of? and $200. Dang what a deal right? I thought so. Drove it home knowing it was going to have deathwobble. Now remind you, well to tell you, jeep was located in Columbus, IN and I live in Vincennes, IN. 115 miles one way, with deathwobble
but I managed though, figuring out when it was coming and when to power of it. My conclusion is, possibly tires need balance because I see no evidence of any wheel weights at all
So plans are as follows(Not in any order):
1.) Long arms
2.) Figure out how much lift is in the rear to order the right set of leaf packs, as the ones on there, well are starting to invert.
6.)Locker up front
7.)Replace the rough country winch on the front with my superwinch lp10000-DONE
Things I know it has right now:
1.)K&N Air filter(Hot air intake)
2.)Throttle boddy spacer
3.)5.5" lift well, was told its 5.5"
4.)Short arms and rides like mini dump truck
5.)Came with not only winch bumper, but a steering brace
6.)Drop pitman arm
7.)Double sheer trac bar
List of things off the bat
-dash install kit-DONE
-steering stabalizer as it still has a factory mopar unit
In one of the pictures, you can see I went prepared.
