paid $799 for bumper new

and all i did for front driveshaft was got to a u-pull yard and get the double cardine style with u-joints and slip spline shaft cause the factory 1 was a cv end shaft and we trashed it first time at Silver Lake...so basically it was is stock shaft just not the original

the TXR's are nice, been to silver lake and rocks and valleys with them driving on the highway their and back, bought them for $75 all four and they are pretty much done but have done well, not sure what they cost new but im looking at the new goodyear mtr's myself


and for the axle not all front axles are the same length and the xj 1's will work as well so take tape measure and find the longest you can..
