So im new to the forum, so i figured id do a build post on my xj i have a 1990 with 170k miles. I bought this jeep my junior year in highschool as my first car it was hit on the driver side passenger door, but i paid 600 so its all cool. It was bone stock when i bought it, ive had it 4 almost 5 years and its still never seen a trail. Its been a slow build, ill upload some pics and update what ive done so far

Here im changing the radiator hose cuz it blew so i flushed the radiator and got a new hose. Then the thermostat housing gasket blew so i changed that and got a new thernostate. At that point i was in jeep mode, Then i noticed my valve cover was leaking so i changed it, then i was under my jeep doing my transfer case drop and figured id do my rear main seal while my jeeps in the garage... Should be running like a champ after this week

So this is my temporary fix for my door, i riveted strips of sheet metal to keep the door shut as much as i could. Then i took some foam insulation spray and filled the cracks on the inside. Pretty ghetto but the only thing goin in the back of my jeep are my dogs and tools.
