I got a 96 xj that I have done very little with so far. Was pretty dirty inside so I gutted it all besides door panels, center console, dash and seats. The by mistake sprayed the floor boards and cargo area with undercoating instead of bed liner, Its working so far.

Here is a pic when I got it. bad pic I know

I put 4" coil spacers up front and did a bastard packed rear leaf with a set of leafs from a 01 s10, cutting the ends of the leafs of and only using the main from the xj I gained 6-7" in the rear.

Plan to go up another 2" in the rear and 2.5" in the front, build bumpers, install my winch and a little more.

Anyone know a good place to be 6.5" lift springs or something from the junk yard?
