Default 1999 Classic slow build!!

So I've had my XJ for 10 years now. I bought it and it was stock except for the wheels. First thing I did was put a 3" Rough Country AAL lift on with 31's. Installed a kick *** stereo system and called it good. Well 10 years later I am starting over, nothing crazy. A couple months ago I upgraded the suspension (RC 3.5" leafs and 1" coil spacers) to give me basically a 3.5" lift. New shocks, tcase drop kit, sway bar drop kit, new ujoints (got rid of the vibe). So here we go, this is where she sits today.

FOR SALE!!!!!

I also swapped out all my interior lights for LED's, last to do is the gauge cluster and the HVAC cluster. Pictures to come when I am done!

Have not had money to do too much this week due to Xmas. But I did install my HD wiring harness and ordered some Autopal H4 housings and bulbs. Also installed my clear turn signal lights. Picked up a matching Maxxis bighorn tire for my spare and threw it up on my rack. Hoping to order my 1.25" wheel spacers and Warrior products bumper with brush guard in the next couple weeks. Went shooting yesterday and played around in the mud after.

A few pic's of what I've been up to lately. Putco wiring harness, clear turn signals, new matching full size spare, and a tool box I made with some left over plywood and then bedlined it.

Nothing new here. I installed the Kenwood deck a couple months ago. The speakers and sub are all from years ago. Just thought I would throw some more pics of the Jeep on here.

Some old pictures. Two of the Fat Mat I installed everywhere except the headliner. My first amp location (didn't work, seat wouldn't move with amp under it). And one of my XJ, how she looked for ten years.

I've been killing myself trying to get some Moabs for like 6 months now. I saw this on the forum and loved the look. Lot cheaper than going to Moabs and having to get new tires.
