I picked up my 2000 XJ about 2 months ago, got it with a good front bumper, 2" BB, 31s and some ok wheels.

heres some pics when I 1st got it (click on pics to make bigger)





I have took it out afew times and everything worked as it should. I had my back tires rubbing when it would flex so I knew it needed more of a lift.

afew pics of it on the trail

so I ordered a RC 3" lift and put it on this weekend with the 2" BB (front spacer, rear shackle). So far everything seems to be working fine.

a pic as soon as it was on


Then had to do make sure everything was ok

My rear end went out, found one at a junk yard for $150 so putting that in this weekend. Going to keep my stock rear end and start bulding it once I have some more money.

Got the rear put in and then I had a bearing go out in the front so ended up putting in a front end as well.

I unhooked the sway bar for the 1st time. I'm still running stock brake lines so I was worried but have tons of room with them still
