Default Project Blackout

I bought this XJ just after my birthday. I had a big plan for it with little money. I dont have a picture of when i first got it but i do have it with 31s and no lift.

I plan on it i took the fender flares off and took off the trim itself. Im going to sand it and paint it tommorrow.

The jeep is a 1992 with D30 and D35, now about 4 inches and 31s. Automatic tranny as well.

I then added the lift and painted all the other chrome. Door handles, mirrors, etc.

Put V8 grand cherokee coils with spacers and did a dodge dakota leaf conversion..

Thanks! I love working on it. The best part it performs great. The leafs flex a lot more than I ever expected and the ride isnt that bad either.

Took the flares and rubber side trim off. Now I gotta take a razor blade and some 320 to the sides. Will have it painted tomorrow...Black or herculiner to the sides?
