Not sure of the power the rear gears and spool will be here monday and installed sometime during the week. It has 3.55s in the rear now and I drove it down the street and was shocked the all 4 squirrels could push it as well as it did.

As far as the XJ goes it is gone but it is already up for sale and for cheap.

I can't wait till it's done. Pretty much it just needs a few finishing touch and it will be ready for the trails. My goal is next weekend. jamminz.gif

Got alot of stuff done in the past week. I made a driveshaft for the front , got my gears and spool in, got the front air locker wired up and airline ran. I also did alot of other little thing too. Got to flex it out, The rear flexes awesome with 2 leaves taken out of the packs. The front needs different shocks, they aren't quite long enough. Now I am working on making an anti wrap bar for the rear.
