I guess Sarcasm is beyond you

I am on my 2nd XJ and will never own a SWB in my life... unless it's an FJ40 or Defender 90.

I understand sarcasm but for the people who really feel that way- it is easier to get some in the back of an XJ.

BTW- nice rigs. Mine is undergoing a trasformation as well. Keep us posted with Pics.

Added a couple of recent pics minus the flares ... anyone know anybody that wants to buy a "slightly" used pair of Bushwacker flares?

Well, for those that know ... the YJ is getting stored for later and I'm putting big boy britches on the flexible body of the XJ.

Adding:
She's lost her doors and hatch already. Putting a interior cage in by Oct.
3/4 ton 8 lug w/ H1 wheels and 39.5 Iroks
Hydraulic Assit via WestTexas

Already have:
4.7 stroker
Teralow 4:1
A driver that gives two shits on body damage.

Here's a couple of old pics:

I'm trying to get him to go to 39" too ... although I never really considered 36" tires small.

The ride height is going to be an inch/two taller than where it is on the stands, which isn't far from where it was...

I can't wait either! It'll hopefully be done mid Sept, so I can get a few miles on it before a good beating in Oct. The bad, I may not get the cage in by that time ... if it turns out to be fubared wheeling it without reinforcement then it will all get swapped to the white YJ in the last pic.

I see pics here and red x's at work. Someone PM'd me and said they see red x's.

I'm at a lost when it comes to posting pictures and have asked someone before. What is the "easiest" route/direction for posting pictures, aside from attaching thumbnails.
