Default 60th Anniversary XJ build

Bought my XJ stock March of last year with 126k miles
I started to daily drive it at end of July and began saving money to buy some parts
By February of 2016 I got my list of parts all together and on the jeep.
Mods include: 4" Old Man Emu lift, OME long travel shocks, OME steering stabilizer, extended stainless steel brake lines, IRO double shear track bar, ARB front bumper, ARB differential covers front and rear, 285/75/16 KO2s with TJ moabs, Aussie front locker, 4.10 gears, Notch Customs flares, Uniden CB w/ firestik, IPF headlights w/ harness
Future plans: 35" BFG, aftermarket wheels or keeps moabs, 4.56/4.88(not sure yet), ARB rear locker, rear JCR bumper/tire carrier, hood louvers, rock sliders

the front is easy. Measure and cut and bolt on. The rear is a different story. You have to measure, cut and fold, then weld the folds and drill holes to bolt in. If I had to do it over again I would just do flat flares or pocket style from Napier

Yea the rear of the zj was fun too, I loved the way they turned out but I did bust a couple of the bolts off and had to reattach them with apoxy... I've cut alot of xj's but I'll never do another set of those no matter how pretty they are...LOL

Yeah I didn't have the front bump stopped yet at first and broke all the bolts. Had a body guy reattach bolts in approx same spot with concrete filler
