i need to figure out tow points for the front. when i got in my accident it crinkled the front of the frame(not far back enough to mess anything up) but its a crunched up mess. any suggestions on how to go about mounting some brackets to it?

nice looking xj. I recognize that yellow one from NAXJA. some of us work to feed our jeep addictions. The upcoming plans sound good. Why/what type of chop top are you thinking? Plans for a cage at that point?

i picked up a roof rack and a 87 rust bucket comanche since i last posted. hoping to make the mj my daily driver and lift this one more. the mj needs floorboards, doors, and the gas tank relocated...all of which i hope to get done this winter because i think the xj is going to take a real beating from all the iowa salt with the snow.
