Default 89 XJ, Its my Turn. Lets Build LOL STOCK PICS ADDED look at the tag



BTW THESE STOCK WHEELS AND TIRES ARE FOR SALE WHEN IM DONE FOR 100 BUCKS IF YOU WANT THEM

Ok, so here I go, I have an 89 xj, stock as all get out, So, I decided to order sone parts.

Today I got My 4.5 Rough Country from ups, While I do the lift, I have ordered a Polyurethane Bushing Kit to replace everything that the lift doesnt cover and to make sure I have extras, found it for 90 bucks shipped with a 5 year warranty.

I went with the Cragar V-5 Wheels, 15x8 3.75 back Spacing. Soft 8's are everywhere, I love them, but there like mustangs, look around and see 4 in one block. Window D's, just not crazy about the wagon wheels, had them on my YJ.

Im about to goto the Scrap yard now and pick up some tubing and such, for the bumpers front and rear, and maybe a swing out tire carrier. Gotta love having a welder laying around!!!!!!!!

Scored some brand new Buckshot Mudders From Craigslists yesterday For 150 bucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The **** are still on them, the guy couldnt get them to fit on the truck he bought them for????????? My lucky day I guess.

Also found some really nice seats from a 93 xj that I am going to have to fab mounts for. Ive never done a build thread b4 so bare with me if its a little off. Any advice or questions just shout it out.. Picks as I do them. Im going to start in about a week or so.

Changed my mind about the wheels, going with these instead, so I am sending my v-5's back to summit, there good about returns, no restock fees or anything.
