I don't know yet... it should though, i'll have to check that out. The tabs are only half circles for now and go around the bolts, plan is to pick up some longer bolts and some washers.

Did you make your front bumper? If so how much do you charge for your bumpers?

So i put some fresh paint on everything and got the axle back under the jeep. Just have to put the tires on and give her a little test







The pitman arm is a back up till i get the new one on, then i have some nice parallel bars

Started a new tire carrier last weekend, still need to finish the bracing and details. Works well though.

Thanks, it works pretty well and if you don't need it just pull all four pins and you can lose the weight

Well i spent my government money today and picked up a d44 and d60 for dirt cheap with 4.10's. Everything is free turning and in working order, just need to redo the brakes and set them up under the jeep. I'll also most likely 3 link the front and maybe even link the rear. set the new perches up for an additional 2 inches so i can run 38's

Well its been some time since i have done any real work to the XJ, been to busy working on other vehicles.

So because i put off making my own parts, this time rock rails, i put a small dent in my rocker panel. :hehe;



Looks like crap! So I just cut it out, i love body work


The plan is to replace it with the 2" square tube that was suppose to be for my rock rails. I might even do boat sides, not sure yet. I have to see what is lying around the garage. I do want it to keep the original lines for awhile still.

Here is an idea of what it will look like.




And this is why rockers rust out. I had no visible rust yet but look at what came out of them.

That little welder is only used for tacking things together and some small stuff. I ARC weld everything else. A nice MIG and bender are on the Christmas list.
