I was wondering how long it was going to take to do that thing proper :)

Did you put the (optional) adjustable front track bar on it?

So are you going to wheel this one or the XJ? Or both? My vote is for the TJ.

They'll split time. Depends on the terrain. I'm still paying for the TJ.

I thought that you were trying to buy a house, and you are building two wheeling rigs? :nono: And Bree has to sell HER car?! Man, tell me your secret to success!

Easy....tax check paid for the TJ stuff. I haven't put a lot of money in the XJ since 05. I have a roommate right now and pay $500 for rent. So, I save a lot of $$$ when I don't need to spend money.
After the house....those days are over. :(

Don't worry too much. You will be house poor for a little while but it is worth it. If your tax return this year bought all that stuff, wait until you see it once you tie the knot and write off all the interest on those house payments!

The tax check covered wheels, tires, and labor. I stashed some cash for the lift kit.

72 walks with a P.I.M.P. cane, that is how he does it.

Now he is in the two capable rigs group:thumbsup:

How do you like the drive on that lift?

Mine was better than stock after lift & wheels, takes corners great, no tilt.

yes I lifted a buddies tj and he is running 33's so we just took a large pipe and a big hammer and rounded the edge of the bumper to make it fit it helps stop the tire from moving around on rough roads too...

A 33" will fit with some spacers but I have a rear bumper/carrier that will be coming in soon.

So far, it handles much better than stock. Just a few vibes here and there. Nothing a SYE/DS combo can't fix.

Ya, I got a break. Jason didn't bend me over. :D

Spent a few hours tonight installing the rear bumper and tire carrier. Have to a little fab work (power tools and destruction) to fit the LED 3rd brake light.
