once i got my xj i began saving for a re 5.5'' lift. But last christmas my parents surprised me with a 3in rc lift. I cant say i was super excited but I didnt want to be an ******* and say no i dont want it. so I ended up putting it on, only have like 2 during lift pics.

During the lift:
It took about three nights to do. Granted i was going to school during the day, and work at night. So for three nights i worked on it from 8:30pm to 5:00am. i ran into problems like the front leaf spring bolts being a piece of crap, and other dumb stuff.

a few days after i lifted it I went for a stroll through the woods on a gravel path, mostly just crusing, when my alternator bearing decided to blow up, and jam the fan and rip the belt off. so my buddys little 91s10 dragged me home.
