Default The life and Death of my rusty XJ



how i bought it, paid $450




a shot before we left for silver lake opener of 2010, this is with the 30" BFG mall terrains on it.

.

poser shot from the SL opener 2010




This is after the "ghetto lift" and the 8.8 swap into the rear, still sitting on 30"s



Crammed some bald 33"s on it



took it to the dunes with bald 33"s had some good times.



then i scored a set of "cut" KM2's in 32x11.5 for a hell of a deal.



Went on a memorial trail ride, met quite a few GL4x4 members


Wish we could still play here


Not a huge fan of "mud boggs"



i'm a huge fan of attention though.



eventually it dropped a cylinder and the rust was getting terrible, 278,000 miles, she was tons and tons of fun, i almost cried watching her be towed away on a trailer.
