Default My XJ Flexin for ya.

1996 XJ 4.0 AW4, can't use OD because its not geared right yet, still running 3.55s. BFG35s and ~10" of lift, open, open at the moment but it gets along pretty good. Couple measurements you might like to know, 32" to the bottom of the front and rear bumpers and 24" of ground clearance under the belly.

Nice looking XJ. I've always liked the look of Bushwackers on XJ's!

It started out with a 4.5RE lift kit, including the drop brackets and new arms, this is quicksilvers old ride, he did that, then he upgraded to 5.5"RE for the most part and left in a the original spacers and shackle drops from an earlier kit. It sits nice and there is no arch in the springs, works out very well. Its just a little above what I concider a DD which was my intentions for a winter ride.

I have 10.5" and 35s, I ran the stock 3.55s & open for 2 years when I went to the 4.56s and rear locker it was well worth it. Nice XJ
