Default Project "Fox" - A slower XJ build

Just recently got a 2001 XJ with 160k for 600 plus trade. Im going in a different direction than most on this forum. This is my everyday vehicle so Im going for more of a street look. Im in college so available funds will dictate the speed of the build. Anyway this is her the day I got her

Installed my sony head unit from my old vehicle as well as my amp and 10" kicker sub. I have a spare kicker so i might try and rig up a 2 sub unit soon. Looking at using that "cubby" space in the back somehow... im not sure how yet so if anyone has ideas id like to save some space back there

I thought a good starting mod would be to do the ZJ seat replacement so I picked up a good matching grey set down at the jy. 40 bucks for the pair. I did it a little differently than most I left the rails and everything mounted to the floor and just bolted the new seats down on top. I like the look and the ZJ seats are much nicer to sit on. Didnt notice a huge difference in headroom or anything so overall Im happy with the results

Next on the docket is to replace the damaged front bumper cover. I think im gonna paint it as well as the bumper flares/back bumper/ side molding and below black to break up some of the silver. Probably paint the rims black too... Anyway not sure when ill get to it but thats the plan

my buddy built a sub box for 4 12's in his from the back of the rear seats to the hatch.. a little overkill for bass but it looked cool as hell.

I really like that idea. I think I could work up somethin like that myself. And yes it is a 4wd. The most I plan on doing is some field and dirt road driving so some all terrain or mud tires will do me just fine.

Yeah all the badging was removed when it was (presumably) repainted. Its a prior salvage title and some of the parts arent original. I got some new badging from the jy. What kind of adhesive should i use to reapply it?
