Very nice Justin. Did you move the track bar over at all to center the axle? Also what springs did you end up using?

Next time you come down to Jeeperz Creeperz give me a call I don't live to far from there.

Looks good, I will have an XJ one day.

Why are the flares on the front not painted and the ones on the back are? Is that how she bought it? Just curious.

Paint chipping off on the fender flares he did the front bumper and front flares with Bed liner material and was trying to get it all done before winter with the rear's and ran out of time. it will be finished this spring

LOL I know, I'm just saying I'm surprised since shock boots are supposed to trap dirt and stuff on the seal and bottom of the shaft I thought.

Did you have to do any fender trimming? And what all did you have for a lift on it?

I didnt move the track bar yet, im waiting to see if the coils settle at all, or if an adjustable track bar is in the budget. I used Rough Country 3" coils from Jeeperz Creeperz along with the shocks they sell for them.

as you see it in the pic it has 30x9.50's with 15x7

Looks good there Justin!

Now, what ya need to do, is get that SYE for her, then convince her to do a 4" long arm kit on it, throw some 33's under that bizzatch, and re-gear it... on second thought, the stock 3.55's may be alright at your elevation and geography to be fine to push 33's... but don't expect to bring it to a mountainous state and get anywhere LOL
