Default project "clifford" the red 4 door

so after scrapping my last xj i couldnt last very long with out another. i picked this gem up off craigslist for $600. runs perfect no rust. just needed a windsheild and some tlc. the day i got it home i started taking out the interior to ditch the nasty carpet and trim. i plan bedlining the whole inside and chop topping it. as for suspension i have iro long arm system and 8" springs for the front with a rustys double shear adjustble trac bar. the rear i have rc springs with a 2" shackle. and running rc shocks on all 4 corners. i already installed a rugged ridge cold air intake and throttle body spacer. i plan on redoing all the brakes and running over the knuckle steering. stay tuned and let me know what yall think

Very weird seeing brand new clean wheels on dirty tires. Build looks like it's coming along nicely though!

Like the name and build! I've got a red 94 4 door

i have the header panel and all for the front just havent got that far yet wanted to make sure my radiator and fan setup would work first before i put i all back and had to take it back off.

and 4:10's because the 8.8 i bought already had 4:10's so itd be cheaper to just match the front than redo both and im only running the stock axles to the completely fall apart i have a matching front and rear 3/4 ton set of axles for it just a matter of finding time with my job.

2 trac bars was a mistype lol the double shear mount is from iron rock offroad and the trac bar is from rustys

thanks for the support guys
