tl;dr version to skip the pointless crap.

Purchased December 31st 2012. 198xxx miles. 95 XJ Sport. Front end damage when purchased.

Now that that's over with.

Things I've done to it do far:

New radiator
New valve cover gasket
New front and back ccv valves
New vacuum lines
New JCR Front bumper
New 9500lb Winch
New front clip and all new lights
New driver side fender
New 62mm throttle body
New accelerator cable
New air filter
Sea foamed the intake and crankcase. Injector cleaner in the gas tank

Things I still need to do:

Plugs, cap and rotor (done)
Fix small oil leak
Trans filter and fluid
Front and rear brakes. (Never done drums before)
Put new grill on (done)
Fix side markers
Fix lighting issues (multifunction switch I believe)
Fix door locks. None seem to work lol.

Future plans:

Suspension lift (height undecided)
SYE
Motor and trans mounts
Bushings all around
Steering upgrade
Bigger tires (size dependant on lift height)
Regear if needed
Fix rocker panels
Spray it with a flat dark green color.

How it looked when I purchased it:

Well plugs, cap and rotor was done today. The cap and rotor were worn down a ton compared to the new ones and those plugs were just nasty. It didn't look like they have been changed for many years. JGJ is definitely running good now so hopefully my gas mileage starts improving.

Went to check the voltage on my tps and this is what happened...all I did was touch the wires and the thing fell apart. It's only 2 weeks old too lol.

My next project is going to be shocks. I'm just going to get a cheap set to last me until I can afford the lift I want.

Over the weekend I had the rear diff drained and filled, fresh oil change and drained/filled the trans. Also found the loose ground that was messing up my transmission (thanks again cruiser).

Once I get some new shocks on I might go out and get myself stuck so I can finally test out the winch.
