Default New to forum - my XJ

Hey everyone. I just joined the forum. I own a modified 2012 JK and a 1998XJ that I have been working on.

I got the XJ about 6 months ago and other than needing a new alternator and battery it has run perfect. I recently decided to upgrade it a bit. It came with about a 2" lift and some bald 30" BFG A/T's. I put on some 31x10.5 Wrangler Duratrac's the first week. My 31's rubbed the LCA's at full turn so from there I wanted to do more. Below is pictures of my XJ from when I got it, and from today. It is almost done. Last part to be added that is in the mail are some warn rock rails.

1. New Cat Converter
2. New O2 Sensors
3. New Map Sensor
4. Old Man Emu Steering Stabilizer
5. New Front Disk Brakes - Roto-Tech Front Cross Drilled & Slotted Rotors w/ Hawk Performance LTS Brake Pads & New Rear Drum Brakes & Pads
6. Replaced Diff Fluids, Transmission Fluid, Power Steering Fluid, & Brake Fluid.
7. Front Smittybuilt XRC Bumper & D-Rings With Quadratec Q9000 Winch.
8. New Heavy Duty Rugged Ridge Tie Rod(s)
9. Skyjacker 3" Lift With New Complete Rear Leaf Springs & Front Springs / Shocks
10. 1" Transfer Case Drop
11. Drop Pitman Arm
12. New Throttle Position Sensor
13. New Front Grill (Old on was cracked)
14. Crown Industrial 5 Layer Custom Extended Brake Lines For 3"-4" Lift.
15. 15x8 (4" backspacing) Black Rock Lobo Steel Wheels

Soon To Come:
1. Warrior Products 12Gauge Steel Sideplates
2. Warn Rock Sliders / Side Rails
3. JKS Quick Swaybar Disconnects
4. Rear Bumper With Hitch & Tire Carrier
5. Front bumper reinforcement brackets



And my JK:

And both together:
