Hey everyone, I am new to the forum. I have been lingering around checking out some of the builds and knew I needed an XJ so i decided to get an xj as my very first vehicle (well i bought 2 xjs) a 91 that was modded out with a ton of goodies but with a blown engine so im stripping it down to put on my 96 sport that had some body damage and only had 104k on the engine.

Will have pictures up soon, I am a little slow with computers

I bought the 91 with the rhino liner on it, not really a big fan of it so i decided to just take the goods off of it and put them on the 96, i dont plan on putting rhino liner on the 96 so i will have to find some doors and fender for the 96

Yea, i have no idea why the rhinoliner looks like that, maybe they went for a rugged look with the grey color?

That is a front bumper, the guy threw it in with the grill for some reason, I just took it just incase somthing tragic would happen. Or i may keep the 91 rhino lined jeep to beat to hell, so i may throw that bumper on the 91.
