How much do you want for it?
Also have a pic of the tread on those tires? I'm selling my XJ so stripping it down to somewhat stock

New daily 2013 Kia Optima, 2.0 Turbo, very stock, staying that way. Damn good dad car, enough power to get out of it's own way while being comfortable as hell with every option a bigger guy could ask for in Central FL.











Shopping for an XJ comes next, probably after the first of the year.

Well...this happened today :-)





Any ideas how to limp this sucker home? I'll rent a trailer and borrow/rent a truck if I have to but I'd like to brainstorm other options before I fork over that cash.

It's about 19 miles ish using mostly back roads. I'm heading up this morning with some tools, some flat bar stock, and some time. We'll see if I can get this thing limped home today

I had one suggestion, as I've done it. It's just not as safe as most here would like but it got me home at 10mph max..

My front spring bolt broke one time to where the spring came out of the perch. I had a HD 3" ratchet strap (like the ones on the back of tractor trailers) I wrapped around the axle and ran up to the cross member. It was enough to hold the spring in its perch while idling home. (NO main roads, just a back dirt road)

Ratchet straps were my first thought as well, if anything just to get it on a trailer. I'll try this flat bar first and go from there.

Flat bar worked, got it home safe and sound. You can check the pics and such in my current build listed in my signature.

Got a set of stock leafs for cheap from a local Jeep guy. I'll be swapping those out maybe this weekend and then this pile of junk is ready to move to the new house later this month safely.
