Dude, I have owned LSX cars for the last 10 years and an XJ for the last 13 years. I currently have 2 F-body cars in my driveway right now, with one that hardly ever sees daylight. I would definitely be able to lend you a hand, and on the side contemplate my own LSX swap into y own XJ. I just haven't had the time or the wife approval so I just put it on the side. I even thought about going turbo as it is alot easier and the lazy way out.

Then maybe I could get some wheelin in.

Well decided after the recent rain, and the coming rain in a few days I would get some wheeling in behind the Walmart, as that is the best place around here. Well I had a good time, only got stuck once. By myself I might add, with no decent tree to winch off in site. SO it took me about an hour to get out. I killed a tree in the process but didnt take a pic of it as I felt bad for it. Eventually got out, and made it home only to notice my steering was way off on the way home, found the carnage in the last picture.


Going though the mudhole under the towers, it was alot deeper then I thought.

This was my favorite picture of the day, as the still water makes it look like my entire tire is there.

This is where I got stuck, off to the right on the main path, the first mud pit. The center was angled just right for my front and rear tires to touch them, and stuck.

Tried to pull cable the first time, with no avail. I was working against myself trying to climb that wall on my left with a small tree, only an 8k lb winch, and no traction. I ended up ripping that tree out of the ground. Then i found a different multi tree that I used, and my cable was not long enough, so I used a strap as well. It was long shot, and my winch was not happy, but I was able to pull myself out.

I called up Rusty's and they are gonna send me a new one no charge. The only wanted to know how I did it out of curiosity and to see if they had a defect in the part. I told them it was probobly from when I winched myself out sideways.... I just flipped it over and all is good now, drives strait as much as a lifted Jeep can drive strait!
