Hey guys, I figured i'd make a thread on my XJ Build. Here she is when I first bought her.







I removed the brush guard thing, thought it looked kind of funny and the lights didn't work any ways.

Got the transfer case open, ordered some bearings and seals. All the gears look fine, looks like the previous owner may have been in it before but I'll get it put back together and installed soon. I'm guessing I should use ATF 4?

Wish my floors looked like yours. That's next on the project board. Good start.

Spent a couple hours today to clean the engine with a couple rags and a tooth brush. Yet it's still dirty. Haha! I'm sure you'll notice the high mounted 130 amp ZJ alternator.

Figured I'd update the thread. Finished the floors and bed lined. Installed all the interior. Not as loud as I thought it would be without the carpet.

My old tranny fluid before I changed it. Lol and also some cool pics. Other things I've done but didn't get pics of include: new steering box, new power steering pump, finished rear end, extended all the breather lines, and a new track bar.
