Almost a year on here and you haven't discovered the dozens of preexisting threads of this nature.. Hmm..

Edit- not to shoot it down, but this is a dead horse situation..

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part...

Chances are I just gave you my two Lincolns. Take it or leave it.

Rigidco R22X Rock Sliders $ 190 Highest tucking sliders Box style available for XJ's the lowest hanging part is flush with the bottom of the pinch seam. I get hung up less on my sliders that guys with more lift using conventional sliders that hang below the pinch seam.

Remove your sway bars - Free

Drilled my center console with a 3" hole saw and put in a flared 3" piece of PVC for a cupholder yesterday. Works great.

That is a brilliant Idea I wish I thought of that when I had my 87 XJ !

Right? My 92 is my newest XJ, the other 3 were all Renix era and I wish I'd done it in them.

Can't take credit for the idea though, I'd seen someone else do it a while back on here or JF, don't remember which.
