XJ stock dd/ lame to fame!!!
Quick rundown on my story. Over the summer I retired(tranny) my baby the green XJ. With the shitty econ I purchased a 2001 VW Jetta in hopes of making green a lean,mean,fighting machine. Well after a few months of zipping around in the Jetta, reality sank in. Reality means the Jetta became history and another XJ was brought to the family. XJ #2 was strictly a DD until..... some jack wagon pulled out in front of me. Insurance decided to total(hood/header/grill/bumper/d-side fender/radiator) it out. That was considered to be over $5k in damage. Regardless I bought her back and decided I would spruce it up. Besides the fact that I need to get it road worthy I intend to build a very beefy/stocky yet clean/practical XJ. To get a clear picture of what I want, you could envision a "Rubicon" XJ with a twist!!! Operation has already started. She should be finished by weeks end to be back on the road as a commuter. The upcoming weeks will bring a raised suspension and wheel/tire.
