Well i have been working on this for a long time and finally got around to writing my build and joining the forum. Well here she is all bad looking stock!My 2001 XJ Build "Rose"-1stock.jpg
I bough her in for $4200 all she needed was a thermostat housing easy day. On my first trip after getting her ready for the road the front breaks locked up on me smoked the breaks
Got fixed same day.

So as you can see in the photo the for sale sign well the Great Wife and I have just closed on the house so the lift has arrived so the lift is it for while. As you can see i am still unpacking boxes I ordered a Rustys 3 in lift kit with full springs and adjustable lower control arms. Thought that was all i was going to need!

After a while of this I notice a need for more parts adj track bar and rustys off road have duty steering. Very well worth it 3/4 DOM very nice! Sorry no pictures. At this point I stayed clear of CL and got a set of 33"s from a guy at work lots of tread left still no alignment, pictures later sorry
