The JCR Offroad DIY rear bumper went together really well.
It comes pre cut and tabbed together so you just fold it into shape and weld.
A couple of hrs and you have a pro looking bumper and not much more money then buying the raw materials. Its coated in Raptor bedliner, I put that ---- on everything!

The Trailgear sliders went on easily as well.
They look really close in the pic to the tires but they are not.

Did you ever decide what flare combo you are going to use?

What kind of fuel economy are you getting with cummins in your XJ?

Going with Rusy's (terrible customer service) standard set.
They should just cover the tires without looking to huge.

Yes the XJ is getting the TDI, my 08 Dakota has the ISB170 Cummins 4 cylinder and gets about 24/22mpg, empty/towing.

Hoping to see 30+ from the XJ.

Been a few weeks waiting for the adapter to get cast.
Finally arrived this week.
I love the ability to rotate the engine to just the right position and then bolt it into place.
Stock 4L starter is also going to work but looking at one of those mini gear reduction ones as well.
Here are the two parts of the adapter.

First one bolts to the block.

The transmission adapter then bolts to the engine adapter.

DSCF3002 by [url=https://www.flickr.com/people/[email protected]/]

Engine bolted to trans.

Engine is sitting almost vertical with a slight tilt to the drivers side.
The mini starter may allow me to re clock it to vertical.

That adapter looks pretty awesome!

Also, love how puny the VNT-15 appears in an XJ engine bay
