^^thank you!

Gonna be a slow month as far as fab goes with the holidays. but am going to try and do the center console,hood vents and build the new crossmeber for the long arm front. Would love to link the back..if i can find a cheap 8.8..but might have to settle for some new springs out back and shakles? If i didnt have do do a new roof on my house i would have opted for tons...budgets suck.

You're in the same boat as me. I've just started my 87 XJ project as well as working to complete my 72 Baja Bug. Keep the pics coming!

Scored myself a christmas present...found some new RE 4.5 rear springs on CL for 140 bucks...not a bad score. With the relocation kit in the rear and the soon to be built front LA...should come out cool.The guy mounted them p..and thought they were too stiff after a couple of hundred miles, so he bought some rusty,s....could have been his 90" shackle angle..lol

heres the springs
