Nice looking rig. That's a hell of a place to start from. Is this your first xj?

Yes its my first xj, but i built my buddies for him, and have helped fix plenty of jeeps.

Forgot to bring my cord with me so cant post the pictures. But it consisted of getting 3inches of water on the floor. So carpet is pulled, floor is solid and awaiting raptor liner.

Welcome and nice jeep!

Looks good, My idea's/pointer would be stay at 6.5 and long arm it, get a sye and drive shaft. you can trim and fit 37's

I was rocking 35's on my worn 3" lift.

Slacking on pictures, but left front shock blew out, and motor mounts arent doing the best. One thing after another with jeeps.
