Ahhh...the dreams of future mods to come.

And your XJ looks great! And looks great flexin' too! Your steering geometry looks spot on...those bars look almost parallel. And look at all that pretty paint on the axle and knuckles! And are those locking hubs on the 44?

yep i love to paint , The knuckles come that color they are Dedenbear brand knuckles. For the D44 those are locking hubs, it is off a 1980 J10 axle. The Bronco Graveyard disc brake conversion kit comes w/ the lock outs. So when ya build your axle I would definitely check that out.

cool xj. I am pretty much set in my mind on a TNT radius set up with their sweet flat belly skid. I am curious how you like your rusty kit. I hear lots of bad, yet some very strong defenders of his kits good value. How well does it perform.

He moved to Georgia over 2 years ago, and haven't heard from him in at least a year and half so good luck with the bumper haha.

Here: (this is one Broke made that I picked up)



It's about 3 years old now, has a couple of dents, wasn't made long enough for a winch, but I made it happen. I also had to modify the ends so the tires didn't rub to hard, welded in a 2" reciever and fully welded instead of stitched.

Since it's so beat up .. $50. You pick it up.
