Default slow motion XJ 2.0

well, I picked up yet another xj to build... it's been a while, so I doubt any of you remember the original build "slow motion xj build" but yes, i do still have that one... though it may end up being a parts donor rig for this new one sense the new one is much better mechanically.



of course, just like every xj Iv had this is another 2 door!

specs- 1995, 4.0Ho, ax15, d30/C8.25.
the body is super rough, but this thing runs perfect, no grinds in the transmission, 4wd works great.

The plan is to make it look good, 3-4" lift, 31"s. Maybe weld up the rear end or put a spool in it (don't bother talking me out of it, what can I say I'm set in my ways lol!) or I may pull the d30 non disco front that's locked and the d44 rear with its spool and chromo shafts from my other xj for this one, and the lower gearing of course would be nice. still up in the air what to do.

That's cool yours was the same color, I'll be painting it eventually. I did my last one orange. Not sure what color I'll use on this xj.

unfortunatly my plans have changed. I parked this one next to my 91' and overall the 91 body is just way better.
so the engine/trans/tcase are going to get pulled and put in the 91'.
