You don't have time for this anymore, probably best if you just give up and drop it off at my house

Congrats on the new job!
Looks like the XJ is going to need a "little" trimming here and there to run those tires..

Here we go again



Cut the shit out of the floor and got the doubler installed, well some what!



Clocked quite high, but should allow for a decent flat belly



Did a lot of bending to get shifters to clear the driver seat



Not sure if I will ever need to shift the 231 but planning to run the stock shifter (cut and spun the shift lever) on passenger side of the tunnel and completely customize the stock linkage




Time for a

Still need to mock that side up, that is if anyone wants to run shotgun when it's done

Got a little issue with finishing one thing before moving on to next, but did get new seals in Dana 300, twin sticks in and fluids in doubler. Did also get to have some fun last night and today. Checking out John D's thread this morning also gave me a little inspiration.









Driver side is going to be f.un with the fuel fill tube exclorsure, little concerned about not going high enough, once i get both sides clearanced then I plan to flip the leafs to check tire clearance.

nice to see your back at it, are you planning to raise the tank ? you would have room for the rear stretch and gas tank lid wouldnt be a problem to fab up a new one, or spin the tank around putting the filler tube on the other side

Looking good. The driver's side is more of a PITA due the fill tub encloser, are you planning to raise the tank or go with a fuel cell?

On the fence, need to research the fuel cell route, keep telling myself that I am only going to do a large chunk of this one last time

Got a little more cutting done, decided to raise the tank (funds),


Still need to frame it out and reinforce the floor , then build skid, decent start

and got the driver side cut.



Might work on frame for tank or closing in all the fenders, I should do some welding, getting sick of cut wheel dust (lungs need a break)

Need some suggestions on what to do with upper shock mounts once I stretch/flip leafs?

Those u-bolts on the springs look wimpy. Is it just the way it looks or are those like 1/2" allthread?
