Post My Limited 89 XJ Build!!

Well it started out a month ago when i finnaly got a job and could make some money. I just turned 17 and have done all the mods to this jeep by myself and have paid for it all too. I used a s10 bastard pack that i got at the local junkyard for 30$. They were in great shape and still had excellent arc. I then ordered 4.5 inch coils, sway bar disconnects, front and rear shocks, adjustable trac bar with mount, and lower and upper adj. front control arms, sye and cv drive shaft from rough country. I also ordered a 1 inch coil spacer from ebay. I netted about 5.5 inches from the bastard pack and came out level in the front. I was very pleased with the lift. Next was some 33x12.5x15 Maxxis Bighorns with 15x8 Daytona black steelies and 4:56 gears.

Other mods include, push start (was installed by previous owner0 along with remote start, Uniden CB radio with 4 foot firestick, two Hella 500FF lights (not installed yet), Sylvania superstar white lights, Rockford Fosgate component speakers with matching 12 inch sub in box, Rockford Fosgate amp and alpine deck with aux port for ipod, K&N cold air intake and cherry bomb for exhaust piped out the pasenger side (LOUD!!), and optima yellow battery.

I think that that covers it all. I am very proud with how everying has turned out so far. I have to do some triming to the fenders and ill be set. Let me know what you think and what you think that i should do next, nothing too expensive because im still a junior in highschool on a Dominos paycheck.

Future mods include front and rear bumpers, lockers front and rear, bushwacker fender flars, and herculiner down the sides.
