Default 2001 xj build by josh and kenz

Hi guys. Big thanks to all who followed " needing xj hospitality" it was a fun trip but now its time to get dirty. I'd like to start by saying I'm not a English major and I make many many spelling mistakes as well as grammar errors. Now that the legal jargon is out of the way.
My name is josh and my daughter's name is Makenzie " kenz" she is a big help and will be mentioned often. I live in white hall AR im a transplant from molalla OR. This is are second xj I will post pics of the first it was a black 96. I also have some parts left over from that build I will let ya know what I won't need and if anyone would like them maybe we can work somthing out.

I have a spare engine I picked up I will begin to tare it down in the next couple weeks and build a fresh replacement. Also have a transfercase that I will put the sye in so it can be waiting for when the lift goes on. I picked up a rough country 4 1/2 full leaf lift kit off craigslist for 200. So that will be used in conjugation with some other lift parts.
