Why not slap on some 32's AT's on your truck and just DD it and get a cheap XJ for your wheeling?

The sport you are talking about is still an XJ just 2door.

lol I've found tons of stuff on there. Pretty much everything on this XJ except for the long arm kit and most of what's on my truck as well!

Here's a couple pics... no real tests yet as it's been at the alignment shop. I had to order 1 deg. adjustable upper ball joints for it.

Looks sweet man. You've done some good work too it. Completely different 4x4!

After I BL my Ranger next week and put some new 33's and wheels on it, i'm gonna focus my attention back onto my Bronco. Its been neglected for a couple years now. Needs a bigger lift and some MT's
