Default indirocz28's XJ Build

Hi everyone,
My name is Jeff, and I am pretty new to the forum. I bought my 1998 Jeep Xj sport back in July, bone stock from the original owner. Its begun its trail transformation and is doing pretty well I think. Each time I take it out I am more impressed with it.
Anyway, I went wheeling with a few members of the Bryan/ College Station area this past Sunday at BVORR and had a blast for the few hours we got to wheel. I hope to see more of the park next time.
Special thanks to the guys at BVORR for letting us wheel for free our first time out there. I can't stress enough how much of a difference that makes. Also want to thank them for the space that they open up to the public for local wheelers to come and enjoy during their meetings.

Day I picked it up, 268,000 miles on her One owner.

Day after I bought it and put new tires on it- painted stock rims black since old silver was flaking off

Had some rubbing issues, and decided that I will go with larger tires in the future, so I did some body modification

Also have RC stainless steel brake lines,sway bar disconnects, and adjustable track bar & bracket installed.
Coming soon- another 3 inches, dropped pitman arm, hopefully a rear locker and some adjustable arms for the front axle.
Largest tire size I am planning to go is 33" tall.
Thanks!
Jeff

Thank you,
Just ordered an Aussi Locker for the rear. Looking into an SYE and rear DS while I contemplate doing the 6" lift and Rough Country long arm kit.
