Default 1995 XJ "Stater"

Well hey guys i figured i better start a build thread since it is all starting soon. The rig is named Stater because it came from the state and it is going to be a bit of a SAR and eventual security rig. not too insane but will also be used for some wheeling.

Here is the plan:
exterior and interior:
Satin Black Paint
window tint
front full bucket racing seats
rear halfback seats
street legal racing harness all around
bed liner floor
custom door panels
custom gauge pod and a pillar
full interior hidden strobes. similiar to police strobes.

suspension:
3" lift
31/10.50R15
rear disc brake conversion

Engine:
this is my dream engine in a cherokee witch is a cummins 4bt turbo diesel.

Things Already Done:
Open Air Intake
H4 composite beam conversion, soon to HID
Holley Glasspack exhaust, dumps in front of rear axle
Stereo

Here are some various pics:
NEw H4's on

The light it self

On the trail:

The Exhaust:

sweet ill have to check that site out. do they sell bixenon bulbs?

as for the H4s they are trucklite 4x6, same as a stock xj lens but it is composite instead of sealed beam. no extra wiring needed like a lot of kits say it is just plug and play and blind lol. the H4s alone are pretty bright.

well i have some great news. had some free time so thought i would rip out the carpet and see the damage. and to my surprise there was no rust. well i take that back. there was rust from some bbs that got under the carpet. brush it off. soon to have rhino lining in.

just a quick question. i was thinking about getting this lift.

yea for some reason all the ebay h6054(headlight size) say that they are 6x7. they should be 4x6. plus the ebay housings are cheap. i had some projector ones a rock hit the frount and broke through the front lens as well as the projector lens. i recommend spending the money for the nice ones. not only that but the cheap ones are usually made of plastic and you cant put the higher wattage HID bulbs in if you want them.
