i didn't get to the front suspension because the steel yard didn't have what i needed, but today i removed the inner fender on the other side and then mounted my fuel cell, i also figured our how to mount my new fuel pump. is there anyway to hook up a fuel gauge to the cell? the floor cut isn't quite done but you get the idea.

Sweet Jeep!

You may want to look into a shackle relocation bracket to fix that shackle angle. I wouldn't even want to drive it with those angles. A good shackle angle would be about 45 degrees out the back of the jeep. I can't wait to see how the rest of this turns out.


nice truck you got there too!

1500? Come one if you are gonna use it as a tow rig 2500 would be much better. Good looking xj though

yea ita a 4.7 and yea its a 1500, i didnt get i as a tow rig its just my daily driver, and like a i said i will be flat towing anyways. as for the lease since mine is a corporate lease it is unlimited miles and includes all maintenance and insurance in one payment so its a really good deal , and no i am not using the factory fuel pump i bough a be2000 inline and then will buy this http://www.summitracing.com/parts/ATM-3262/ which should let me us the factory fuel gauge
