I kno,, I kno,,, It's not an XJ but it was BUILT,,, hehheheh

This is the 3rd time it's been rolled ,, flopped and It just jeeps getting better after every rebuild.

This time she did in both front fenders, windshield and frame, rollbar section above passenber, totally trashed the top, the tailgate, Both drivers side control arms, both upper and lower drivers side control arm mounts, rear track bar and both bumpers,, Deep sigh

Here it is back on its 33" radial Swampers. The top will be here in a day or so. We decided on the Rampage 109535 Trail Top - Frameless/Bowless. Since I was able to salvage the rear window bar and instead of the no drill header I am using the stock top header. You can cut it off and it has screws that go thru a plastic edge similar to a normal top.

I used the ROR200 and 202 coils with appropriate shocks. Front and rear TB reloc brackets, pitman to lift it this time. And have a better stabiliser coming on Monday. The front tb bracket is from Morris and the rear is from Rough Country. I have both sways off now but will prolly be gettn em back on as it seems a lil wavy. But hey,,, its NOT a sports car. The front left upper and lower CA brackets are Rough Country also.

So,,, what ya'll think?

Hehehhhehheh,,,

She slid this time on a wet one laned road that crosses over a mountain here. On a corner and a coupla sport bikes were goin up as she was commin down. All that damage from around 15mph. The tow truck that flipped it back and drug it back out did all the suspension damage when the dragged it sideways to line it up for the rollback.

<deep sigh>

So, she just can't drive. How about the first two times? She needs training wheels.

Actually,,,

I'm thinking OUTRIGGERS.

We were wheeling some pretty steep trails the other times it flopped. Not rocky or muddy,, just STEEP and Mr. Gravity won.

Yep,,, see for yourself

A HUGE rock hit the passenger side exactly on the short bar above the passenger seat. See for yourself.
