Here's another shot showing the 4.5" lift.

Damn it thats a nice rig !

Luckily the chief mechanic at the local dealership is awesome and he had the culprit (a faulty crank sensor) fixed in no time. Picked the XJ up and brought her home.
Tough break on the breakdown, but luckily you got some good help. Basically just wanted to say that Power Wagon is badass.

Great job on the sweet looking XJ and nicely written build thread.

Keep us posted on any further upgrades.

PS: Go with the Krylon Fusion next time you want to do your trim and bumper end caps. It'll be worth the your time.
