Talking Project XJ (Obsession)

Hey guy's New here Thank's for ur visit, Please Enjoy :]
Heres my jeep when i first got her. (i didnt take pictures of what ive done so far tell this last month..)
Looks not to bad right? well i thought so too for 500 bucks.
Tell i found out the, balljoint's and all front end u-joints were shot. along with the shocks and needed to be Re-geared. and a serious Tune Up.. BUT its a jeep thing. And im going to Re-Build her top too bottom. And on top of that sit's on a budget build already.. (witch im not a fan off But im not rich either )

160xxx miles on her isn't bad either :]
On the plus side the electical all works. replaced all fuse's and amp's..
(Yes my First jeep build)
