Trish's XJ build

This is Trish's jeep now....(my daughter for those who don't know her). It has an add a leaf and pucks on 30's. For a combo Christmas/Birthday/graduation gift she decided she wanted it a bit beefier.



The plan is a Rusty's 6.5" long arm
sye kit
custom driveshaft
1 ton steering
4.56 gears-
cut fenders to make room for some 35's
If I can swing it I will lock the front and rear as well......see how the $ goes

It will be a DD/part time wheeler. Starting to collect some parts now....

for sale will be:
30x16 tires on cheap wheels
stock drive shaft
add a leaf-- sold
pucks---sold
3:55 gears

Do you think it's safe to expose your daughter to the perverts here?








I can't wait to hit on your daughter.

nice to see a mother/daughter build - gotta be a 1st
if your installing a sye kit, keep the old front drive shaft, its a direct fit for the rear with a sye kit, or keep as a spare.

Nice (and subscribed).

We may be interested in that AAL for one of my daughter's XJs when the time comes, Becky. I'll watch this thread for updates.

When we talked about this build I forgot to mention 1 very important detail. My parents bought me my first XJ lift and wheels/tires for my high school graduation present.....and look how I turned out!! Think long and hard about whether this is in her best interest, or if you're setting her on a path of being eternally broke and never satisfied with vehicles ever again.
