Default My Humble XJ

Hi there, i'm new to the forum..

I sold off my 230CE and bought a 1996 XJ Manual.

Here is the picture of my XJ when i got it, I had removed the sidesteps,tinting, the bottom spotlights and the hood side deco light.Currently it is at a stock height..

K&N Air filter from Quadratec.
Cut Out Bushwhacker Fender Flares from Quadratec
(Pissed with my malaysian custom for taxing me USD300 for it....grrrr)

AWC Daytona Wheels (Black)

My future mod list:
4.5 RE Lift or Custom lift @ my local workshop
33" Tire
T-Case Drop Kit (Will get SYE when i have enuff cash)
Longer brakelines
Lower Control Arm

Bought a Borsch Grinder

STAGE 1: Installation of Bushwhacker Fender Flares
*Removed the inner metal and the old flares

Finish grinding...

At the time being, i managed to cut the front 2 fender, the rear fender, will be quite troublesome, will need to look @ the manual properly.

Tell me what you guys think, After cutting all the fender, will i be manage to put 31" tire (temporary)?

I've had problems with water pools, when my XJ goes through them the windshield (yes, Istill have one) is covered with the water- heavy and thick. I'm blind for a second or two; that's with the stock flares, without them I fear it could be worse. Just a thought..
