Default Frankenstein Build

Ive got me a 99 XJ I'm dubbing the Frankenstein and I'm tryna go crazy and wild with this. I'm tryna go custom on a lot of things and really make it look like monster, I'm just looking for radical ideas right now on some stuff that's never been done on and xj or stuff you don't see done on an xj, any ideas???

That's a tall order man, what hasn't been done to an XJ???

XJ 4x4 dually?
Ind. suspension rally rig?
Graft on an old army jeep nose, but done nice & slick?

Weird stuff, but XJs are like deuce coupes and vintage Mustangs... If its a good idea, somebody's probably done it already.

"Simpsons did it!"

Hey man if it comes down to it I'll find a way to rig up a Comanche 6' bed to my xj and make it a dually, it would look sick as all hell and take some time for it but I'm going for crazy and wild

It looks nasty man I like his build and I love the name rolling felony haha I might have to rethink my name now. Me and my buddy just got off the phone and I was telling him how a dually jeep build would be insane to do he told me if you're gonna do a dialog you might as well step it up a notch and do a double axle rear end like the semi trucks have, how insane would that be to have done to an xj? Cause I know that's never been done before

So me and my buddy decided that we are making it into a crewcab with a 6 foot bed with a 7.3 powerstroke he has in his old pick up. We may or may not go the dually route but we will see when the time comes
