Default Lake's Build Thread

This is going to be my new build thread. Posted the old one in the wrong section. Anyways here it goes.

So I got my xj when I was 16, bone stock, nothing done to it.



It stayed that way until i tinted the windows and painted the stock wheels black.


Then, almost a year and a half later, it got bedlined and 31s.


Then came tow hooks. Can't find the pics.

Default Lift!

Next thing was a rustys advanced kit with full leaf packs and a tcase drop for vibes.


The rustys kit is amazing! It rides great.

Default Bumper

Hello, its been a while, and the only thing I've done is wash it from off roading. No pics, sorry. Anyways, I'm looking into a new front bumper, i want a stinger, but I'm not willing to pay $500+ for one. What are my options?

Took flares and end caps off. Added a trailer hitch and painted the fenders with plastidip. What do you think?

Looks good. I like the onboard air. Never thought of doing it that way.
