Default 93' XJ Build

It's been about 4 years since I’ve posted on here but I recently picked up a 93' XJ. Here are the specs on it.

Waggy Dana 44's F/R
Unibody Plated
Front: Trussed 44/lockrite locker/Y Link set up
Rear: 44/welded
37's IROKs right now

Future Plans:
Cage
5 pts
39s/40s
Dana 60 in the rear
Bumpers F/R

(Don't mind the front right now.. it's broke and going to get the front unibody plated next week.)

Broke the entire unibody up front.. When I try to steer the entire frame moves side to side.. i'm gonna plate up the front inner and outter part of the frame to hopefully stiffen it up.

Eventually, I might get a new front fenders and make it look a little better haha.

hey man looks aren't everything. Get that unibody fixed up and I'll bet it's a lot of fun. At least you dont have to worry about getting any dents, lol

I ended up trading my DD 99' xj with 3"lift and 31's for it.. got an 85' Chevy C10 LWB and 93' XJ in the trade.

Why not just transfer all the parts to another body? That's what I plan to do. My unibody is ****.

Because the rest of the unibody is already plated up and I don't want to have to rework all the unibody underneath..
