Flat Black and Moss Green Pearl is the best color combo on an XJ. Then again I'm biased. Looks a lot like mine, nice jeep man.

thanks it my favorite combo too.its the first project ive had that i didnt want to change the color.as far as the bastard pack question the links below helped out alot but its not an exact science.be prepared to swap leaves in and out to get the lift you want.i got lucky on mine but went a little high and developed a driveline vibration.did a one inch transfer case drop and cured 90% of it.another 1/2 inch would cure it but ill wait till i get bumpers and rack on it.the extra weight should put it where it needs to be.
