93 xj build
 
Hello this is the build of my 93 police package xj.

I am starting off buy getting my xj ready to go doorless or make half doors for it. I am going to mount mirrors to the fenders, I got some free mirrors from an 86 suburban.

This is where I plan on mounting them.

sanded down the brackets.

And I painted them black

The paint is kind bubbling in a couple spots so I will have to resand and go over them again.

I sanded the brackets and put a couple more coats of paint on them

My XJ is a 1993 police package That I bought in June 2010.
It has a 3inch budget booster lift up front and add a leaf in the back with 31inch bfg mudterrains and a cb. I plan on putting a 4.5inch lift 33's on it and painting it tan

Which lift are you planning on putting on?

Same kit I have. I like it, plus its upgradeable to the long arm for future upgrade if wanted. However the instructions off of RC's website is for the 6.5 lift. I'd suggest getting the SYE kit at the same time too. The t-case drop kit supposedly ruins motor mounts.

RC doesn't offer a sye for my tcase, I have the np242.

You should build a custom console since you already have your old one out. The stock ones blow, and it wouldn't be that hard

SHANE 87 05-03-2011 11:38 PM

My police package doesnt have a center console but I am thinking about getting a zj console to put in since it has cup holders
