Default Urban Assault Vehicle (VERY slow build)

Ive owned several Jeeps, but this is my first XJ. I will be building this slowly until I have better funds.

So far, I have replaced all fluids, redone the brakes, replaced the serpentine belt, removed the headliner, removed the fender flares, and cut and folded the front fenders. I will tackle the rear fenders sometime this week.

What I am going to do within the next year:

31-32" Duratrac's
New wheels
RE 3.5" Super Ride Lift
Front bumper
Rear bumper (maybe swing out too)
New audio with a stealth 10" sub
Black, white, gray, and dark gray digital camo paint

Here are some glamour shots and from the time I got her to the present:

I will also be Raptor lining the interior and the wheel wells, since I never got to use it on my CJ.


Here is my CJ5 that I had to get rid of. She was a beast.
304, 3speed manual, 2.5" Skyjacker lift, 15x10 steel rims, 33x12.50x15" Duratrac's. Spray painted in my driveway. It turned out really good. I never did paint the replacement fenders though.

Since this will be a DD, and I only go trail riding 3-4 times a year, I am building this more for road and comfort. That is until the off-roading bug hits me hard, or I buy a Comanche to build as a DD. Then this might turn into a chuggy down the road.

Here is the lift I am going to get. Is there anything I need to add, such as disco's, SYE, etc?

LOL. I actually traded it for the XJ. I needed a kid friendly vehicle ASAP.

I do miss it, but I built it and I have those memories. I have come to the conclusion I need/want an MJ morre than any CJ, so that will be fixed up and be my daily driver. Thats when I will decide whats best for my UAV.

If you had been closer, I might have traded you. That wouldve been a long drive on faith for either of us. Did you sell it?

Got some time today to start on cutting and folding the rear fenders. I've finished cutting the drivers side. I cut too much off. I still have to screw them down. Passenger side is next.

And finished. I'll just have to put a piece of metal over the parts I cut to much off of, but no biggie.
