New to the forum,but have been following this site for about 3yrs.
Have learned countless bits of information in helping me solve the oh so many problems that these jeeps have and I am forever grateful(thank you all!)

My XJ is commonly know in my house and by my friends as (project whiteout).I purchased my jeep about 4 years ago from a woman that had it sense new and was awarded in her divorce,it had sat for a few years in her garage until the new current husband came along and said it was time for it to go.It had 180.000 on it,sagging head liner,all the typical oil leaks,etc but it was all in tact,no rust,ran like a top and interior was flawless expect headliner with a stack of service records dating back to new from the dealership it was originally purchased.The new husband was asking $2500.00 I got it for $2000.00 drove it home and the fun began!
Got it home did all the basics stuff oil change,tranny fuild,gear oil,transfer case fuild,power steering fuild,brake fuild,radiator flush,plugs,cap,rotor,etc.All in all it as was really pretty clean and looked good.

On to the good stuff!

Looks so good. Can you tell us what type of bedliner or paint you used? I'm super curious.
