    My 99' MJ Limited

    Picked this up local on Friday! 2000 XJ Limited. Interior is on pretty decent shape. Stock axles, all electronics work including windows and door locks, and only has 2,000 miles on the new motor. It isn’t perfect, but it is a daily driver and it is going to be my wife’s project rig / family rig. Needs a little TLC but one day soon she will be a gem! The kicker though is, the motor is 4.7 Titan Stroker. The same engine in the JCR XJ minus the aluminum heads but with bigger exhaust valves and a performance cam and a new fully welded exhaust and some other nifty tricks below the hood. :]

    So, quick little update. I have been super busy with life... been working 20-30 hours at my second job and being a dad as well as going to school does not leave a lot of jeep time here lately! But I went to Tuttle Creek Kansas a few weeks ago with my buddy. Not 10 minutes after having it off of the trailer the transfer case was spewing fluid, the steering gear box was leaking all over the place, fuel was leaking from above the fuel tank, and a nail was in my passenger rear tire. My NP231 will not engage in any position. The Comanche is dead in the water... So my buddy had to tow me back to the trailer and I had to put a concrete anchor D-Ring in my garage to winch the Jeep out of the street and up the drive way... My goal is to get the issues diagnosed in the next couple weeks and the rear tire de-mounted and patched from the inside soon after. Not looking forward to undoing that bead lock wheel... Soon to do list: - Diagnose NP231 fluid leak and engagement issue - Diagnose steering gearbox leak - Patch passenger rear tire - Fix fuel leak Shortly thereafter to do list: - Wire rear winch - Wire rear flood lights - Mock up rear 4 link - Weld 4 link truss on rear axle Before October MOAB trip: - Mount spare tire - Mount Jack - Mount tool carry solution - Hydro Assist (hopefully) - On board air (hopefully) Eventually: - Finish my dang headliner, needs subwoofer enclosures finished and upholstery - Wire winches to steering wheel radio controls - On board Power Pro welder - Rock crawl cameras installed and wired to radio screen - Rock Crawl lights - Strip and repaint with actual paint or bed liner - Construct new front inner fenders - Create fiberglass enclosure for windshield washer fluid relocation - Wire the EXT idle switch to work while in gear with AX-15 - Install a bed cargo light Here are a few pictures from Tuttle Creek that I got. We went straight to that tree to take some pictures and that when my Jeep started showing all the problems.. There are a couple pictures showing the use of my garage anchor and then one more showing the struggles of only having a single car garage... Bless my wife for letting me have it.

    These ones by weather tech are my favorite! I have run them on almost all of my vehicle. Instead of sticking to the outside of the vehicle they seat to the inside of the window channel. The ones on my Comanche now were already on there. But I highly recommend the weather tech ones.

    So I got the wiring done on the Moonvisor. Wired it so that it operates off the headlight switch and comes on when the parking lamps / interior guage lights come on. XJ'S that do not come with a factory fog lamps still have the wiring. It is attached to a blank spot behind the switch bezel. I used the orange illuminated and grounding lead off of that to wire the visor. This way I didn't have to wire to a separate switch, it is on a factory fused circuit, and it is on an ignition circuit. I also gained the ability to dim the visor lights! I was pleasantly suprised that I was able to go from full off to full on by twisting the dimmer knob.

    I really like the bumper!!! But I'm gonna have to make a skid plate for the winch to protect the clutch lever and the rope from rocks

    Got the bumper from Krustyballer prepped with the accessories. Waiting on a couple more things before I install it. Got the Lund Moonvisor installed tonight. Just have to finish buttoning up some wiring on the interior.

    Started working on the rear bumper from Krustyballer, finally!!! Will finish mounting it next week, waiting on a couple final pieces of the puzzle to arrive.

    Had fun at Kansas rocks frostbite today, but man it was muddy!!!! I had some carnage... due to the mud and the tight technical trails I slid into a couple trees and dinged my bed up some.... Then while pressure washing the dirt off some of the paint began coming off... But, the jeep did absolutely amazing and I did every single trail, even the washed out expert ones. I didn’t do the slab because it was just too slick for anybody to get up so I didn’t try. I tried out the ramp again this time and made it half way up the large one!!! The new front four link system is absolutely killer... I am so impressed with how much my on road and off road handling has been improved! I highly recommend the IronMan4x4 front cross member and link system! For comparison, this is How I did at last years frostbite on the ramp. This one is the small ramp and I didn’t even make it half way up! With the IronMan4x4 front suspension and the 7075 links, I made it half way up the big ramp and had more to go!! But the 37’s were tucking in the fenders and rubbing some. So I didn’t push it to hard.

    Getting to the bolts on the transfer case side with the new cross member is dang near impossible without an extra set of hands to install the front drive shaft. Had to enlist the help of my buddy to get it installed, but she’s in and one step closer to Kansas Rocks!

    Thank you sir!! These edited ones do her a little more justice

    Got the flares painted and installed until I’m ready to construct inner fenders and actually fiberglass them to the body. Just trying to get things together for the Frostbite event this weekend! Here’s How she sits now: I also got the Ironman cross member welded today. She drives sooooo much better with the long arms and the axle stretched a few inches!
