project flipper!!
Hey y'all!! So i rolled my xj last weekend and so im rebuilding her now. I plan on chopping the top, full dom roll cage, partial engine rebuild, replacing the leaf springs, hopefully put in my gc springs for about an inch more lift (i only.have 2" bb right now :/ ) also somehow i want to make bed side tool/storage boxes like in the new ram trucks, a spare tire carrier, hopefully do a 'mini tub' on the rear fenders i think it's called, and when its done i want to use aluminum diamond plate on my bed area.

I have a two door, so its gonna be kinda tight but im leaving room behind the front seats for two small seats im back that face towards each other. Like in crew cab trucks.

Another thing is, hopefully when i get the money, im also going to put in 5 point harness seats and use my middle cross bar of the cage as my harness post. I don't know how many pictures ill be able to get up because im doin this off of my phone but ill try to do as many as i.can!

let me know what you all think, questions, comments, whatever you want to say is welcome! im always ears for tryin to learn from others on here.

Thanks for lookin!
