Lemme know if you ever need help with the doorless mod. I already did it on mines and it was easy just a bit of a pain to cut the hinges.

That was the plan lol. I just got to pick up my sound bar from my parents' house and figure out where I'm going to relocate and/or rewire my power window switches.

Went to the local junk yard today. They were doing a 50% sale for New Years. Found and acquired a HP D30 (non-CAD) and a 27spl C8.25 both with 4:10's. Couldn't be happier. A nice upgrade from the D30/D35/3:55's I have now. Should be able to push those 31's a lot easier now!

Also, got that
B&M transmission super cooler for Xmas. 3 words: Best... Xmas... ever.

Yes, it was the last XJ I found. 2.5L, 4 cylinder with a 5-speed manual. Was all the way in the back...

Yea, I know. Going to clean them up first and put those disc brakes of yours on the rear axle. Might try to find a locker soon...

I suggest you use some por 15 on them before installation. They will look 100x better than stock. I might be able to help you find a locker for it
