Default Biggoofys 90 XJ mild build

I bought this XJ from a buddy a few weeks ago for $1200. Its pretty mint inside even the headliner is in great shape. A/C and heat both work as well.
Eventually it will get my 3/4 ton axles that are in my ZJ when I step it to tons but for now its staying on 33s and getting a mild build

Current specs
90 XJ 4.0 aw4 231
33" BFG KM2
RCX drop brackets (getting ditched ASAP)
3" lift
IRO OTK steering
IRO extended brake lines
Smittybuilt XRC8 winch (uninstalled) still need to get a bumper
Ironman4x4fab adj lift shackes (uninstalled)
6" coils (uninstalled)
Rustys adj track bars (uninstalled)

I had a bunch of parts laying around from my ZJ so this will be a cheap build lol

Plans are:
Ironaman4x4fab Front long arms with a Clayton crossmember and flat belly skid should be pretty good.

Installed a new fuel pressure regulator today since the old one leaked a bit. I also tested fuel pressure and determined it needs a pump and filter since ill be there anyway. It only primes 10psi and takes forever to get up pressure which is causing a serious hard start. It stays at 27 on idle.

I follow your first build and will follow this one. Ditching the drop brackets soon because they suck? Or because you want IronMan parts?

Seeing this jeep makes me want to get my 33's on that much sooner. I love how they look with 3" of lift. I just need to get my hands on some bushwackers!

Both reasons lol. I just need to order a Clayton skid and crossmember.

Thanks for the kind words on the jeep I'm looking forward to doing a small build on it.
