Stage one looks nice.

What are the specs on your rig? We like details.

Agreed. I would love to know your lift specs. It's a nice look.

Budget build for sure
After figuring out my wife wasn't going to let go of the JKU for me to make a play toy I decided to buy an XJ to play. With having 2 jeeps to suck my wallet dry I'm trying to find deals.
DIY bumpers and sliders
Picked up the BW flats for 100 bucks
4.5" RE coils W/ hockey pucks
3.5" RE springs
Used adjustable lowers
RC 2.2 shocks
RC disconnects
RE HnT and used RE driveshaft
used skid row fuel tank skid and Warn TC skid
33X12.5 Cepek Crushers used
Wheels used
I've been lucky to find some deals

Future
Aussie or Spartan lockers
Adjustable track bar (trying to decide which one I want)
Long arms ( IRO critical path I think)
One ton steering ( DIY or IRO)

Then who knows

Thanks for the compliments i'm happy with the way it's turning out.

That's something I've been looking into. My shackle angle isn't bad but I want to see what it does under compression.

After testing found out I had to go add another hockey puck in front and a couple in back. Also found out my factory brake line relocation wasnt enough so i added chevy 1/2 ton lines. Now to figure out what steering setup to go with or build my own.
