Hey so its been a while since Ive posted on here but I got rid of my TJ about 2 months ago to free up some funds and a month later got an XJ. Its a '95 Country with the 4.0 Auto and the girlfriend has named him Eugene. Well here's the day I picked it up.
and this is the interior It had but this isn't my picture.
Since I got it I have had a good bit of work on my hands. I went to OBX beginning of the month and knew I wanted to bring it so I had to beat the clock. With that in mind I had the Jeep Shop throw a 3" Skyjacker lift on for me to save time, not to mention I couldn't really do it at my townhouse easily, and then I got to work on my days off. I mounted 31" Extreme Countries, new front pads, rotors, and a caliper, new exhaust manifold (which I now have to redo because the gasket it came with leaks now), Tow hitch, trim off the front lip, add cup holders and prolly some little stuff I forget.
While we were down there the hurricane hit and I ended up being the only one in my family who could leave the house. I had it up to the doors in water.....
Now that Ive been back I took off the roof lights and mounted a light bar, had the interior hydro dipped, and fixed the wiring for the cargo light.
Hopefully within the next couple weeks I'm going to be adding a lund visor, front D rings mounts, and extending the roof rack with some rear lights. Also have to do front axle seals so I'm gonna throw an aussie locker in while its apart. Couple other plans for the winter is new floorboards up front, frame stiffeners, mount a rotopak where the stock spare was, Sway bar disconnects and YJ brake lines, and eventually an 8.25 with an LSD. Basically the plan for this jeep is be an awesome DD that can handle the roughest winter or dirt road I can find. I will be wheeling it but its not going to be a hardcore crawler by any means.
