Default 38 inch XJ 2,5 diesel.

This is my dads jeep XJ 97 model he asked me to post some pics of it since heīs not really a computer guy.
iItīs has an orginal 2.5 diesel engine from VM . 5 speed manual gearbox. 38 inch Artic trucks tiers, orginal dana 30 front axel and the orginal dana 35 rear axel with 4.88 gearing. He did the fabrication an build all by him self.

It has all the standar off road equipment such as GPS hooked to a laptop, VHF radio. Next upgrades gonna be
rear airbag suspension front and rear lockers and the dream is to but in the 3.0 jeep commander desiel engine or an Benz sprinter engine diesel of course.

first off, be prepared for the monsoon of people telling you how bad of an idea it is to run 38s with the D35(but i personally say run it till it breaks and worry about it then.) Ok, first question, are those the iceland offroad flares or what? and second, are those modified stock wheels? oh yeah sweet rig btw, love the low COG look

they are special made for icelandic conditions by an icelandic company called Artic trucks wich builds cars for the norwegian army and they also built the cars that went to the north pole.

Weīve been running the 38 inch tiers on the dana 30 and 35 for about 2 years and nothing as broken. We see no reason to go to bigger axels its only gonna ruin the weight it ways about 1700 kilos ready to go, with a full tank. and yeah those fender flares are made in iceland. Every truck has to have them if the car is gonna be road legal and this one is a 100% raod legal the tiers cant stand out from the flares.

Wow nice lookin rig. I like the look, and i am extremely surprised those axles had held up, although it doesnt look too rough from the picture.

Keep it rocking

Okey so couple of months ago we went up to see the volcano the earlyer one the one thats going on now and is messing up all flights is much bigger

some pics.




next to a 44" land rover


the glory. we where only about 100 meters from the fire it self and you could walk right up to the burning lava to light a cigarett.

also took some pics tonight on its summer tiers this is a daily driver after all and theres no need for 38" during the summer so we run it on 35" BF AT.






summer wheels close up


custom fender flares


the 2.5 power horse.
