This is goin to be my build thread on my 2000 xj sport. it is all stock and needs some small cosmetic work bit other than that she has 139k on the clock and is running strong. The first owner apparently pulled it begging their rv and it only has around 80k driving miles and the rest pulled miles.

So far i've added my Yakima loadwarrior basket with extension. I also have a used Ramsey rep8000 winch waiting to be mounted, and a magnaflow 14" straight through muffler.


Stuff on order is a
Smittybilt xrc winch bumper
Superchips trailjammer ext includes-- Cai, flash paq, and 62mm throttle body.
Sony deck with iPod connection.
all of these will be here this week and hopefully I can get them installed next weekend!!!

My future plans consist of
Rubicon express 5.5" superflex kit
33x10.50 bfg KM2 tires on stock wheels
Cubby speaker box
JL 500/1 amp
JL 10w7 sub
Kicker 5.25" speakers
Kicker 200.4 highs amp
Custom rear bumper
Onboard air system
Front powertracs locker
SYE
CV drive shafts
All halogen bulbs converted to LED and HID
LED light bars for roof rack
And necessary trail gear of course.....

But on to pics!!!

Hope y'all follow my build and give me advise and tips along the way!!!!

Thank y'all, Robb

Too late to send the Stupidchips back? I was told chips do close to nothing on 4.0's...

Yea too late, and actually all I could do is install the programmer. And I felt a small amount of throttle response improvement..... And it has special features, tire size, increased idle speed, timing advance.... and diagnostic troubleshooting.

New bumper, trail jammer combo, and sony head unit!!!




Oh and for the ones who doubt the Superchips trailjammer kit. I felt a huge difference!!! All I have to do is install the new muffler and it'll be even better.
