Default CowboyXJs Jeep build

Ok. So Im a firm believer in we can build it ourselves. Im not big on buying and over priced lift from some company that the people that make the lifts drive a smart car.
So most of my builds are homebrew.

When i first got the XJ for $500 i almost had to tow it home.
So far it only has a 3" RC aal lift with full coils. "Im cheap but not so cheap to do a budget lift.
I also built steel tail light housing. Ive seen to many vehicles enter the trails and leave a taillight behind as a momento. Plus one of mine was already broken. Here are a few pics i have left from that project.

The lights came from local auto parts store for $50 and the steel i got from Home Depot for $25. 1/8" thick. The lights are LED with clean lenses light up red so as to stay legal.
