The plan is high clearance for the XJ. Something like T&T Customs mixed with Clayton off roads cross member

Using 2 Johnny joints at the cross member and stock rubber at the axle.
Going to find Some suitable threaded rod/bolt/pipe for the upper links.

I may also make some new lower control arm mounts... as i have torn one off already


But tonight is the gear install, just recieved my d30 carrier
