Is that yours or someone elses?

I used to have a Jeep XJ Wagoneer. I kinda miss it actually. It was seriously the most reliable vehicle I have owned as of yet. The only times I had trouble with it was when the crank sensor went out and the battery died when I didn't drive it for about 6 months.

You know some of the XJ's did. Especially if they had the tow package. Or was it the D40 they had....I can't remember.

The thing that made me not want to mod the Jeep was that if you go with anything bigger then 33's, you had to start cutting the fenders unless you did an axle swap, and they are unibodies, so....

Put a stock hood on and get rid of the Revolver shackels so it doesnt end up on its roof and it would be a sick rig.

Didn't some come with the 35 too? I know they came with the 44's in the rear with the tow package in the 87-90's*

*Had to edit my post, cause I decided to figure it out myself :)

Looks decent, kinda cool acctually. The way his tow point in the back is set up is kinda queer though IMO.

My last rig was an 89 xj. Nothing fancy 3" lift an 31's under it. That thing was surprising on where it would go considering how it was setup.

Kinda wish I woulda kept it to make a woods buggy outta

Is that jeep just used for a "display" for the shop on the back window? It just looks to pretty to be a trail rig.
