Default 98 xj build aka should of left it alone

well manda caved and now i get to tear into her jeep the jeep: 98 xj,auto,3:55 lincoln locked, 4.5 lift, thornturds. shockingly enough this thing preforms awesome offroad as it sits but hey everything i buy i can say it was a gift to her plans are long arm, 8.8,hp 30, 4:88, locked, frame stiffeners, wj steering, 35in mtrs, bumpers, winch, cage for manda pants, sye, and possibly a doubler this is going to be kind of slow due to me not having a garage at this point in time due to shitty contractors. but ive already got the tires, axles, and longarm set b the end of this weekend.

I've liked the way this XJ has looked since you first put pics of it up.

It will be even better with the mods you have planned.

ok so i dont have pics up yet but got the new 35in mtrs mounted, welded my truss on my hp 30 got all the joints, crossmember and other needed items for the long arm set up, stainless brake lines, took off bushwackers (they are going to get broken anyways), need to clean up cuts from previous owner. got a wicked badass throttle body spacer. waiting on my 8.5in springs to come in from jeeperz, need to find my lift shackles for the rear. the four link for the rear will be at a later date. sye and gears are next on the list. also got the lockers for the 8.8 and 30 along with the 1/4 thick front diff from btf and rear one from ahhhhhhh i forgot. just need some stupid shit to put it together but been working like a fool for the last few months so little progress has been made

so, ya all this shit is in my basement still, need frame stiffiners. ever since i rolled it this summer its been aaaaaaaaaaaaa not so good. i think im going to do a patch up job to get it road worthy in case it is need this winter. i dont have a garage big enough for this thing so this project hasnt really went anywhere. maybe do frame stiffeners and switch out axles for now.
