Didn't have a clue those were interchangeable so to speak but that's defiantly good for you!

There not interchangeable, I used a Artec JK to TJ conversion truss on the front and I've got to weld new perches and shock mounts on the rear axle once I get it under the xj and centered... There also 5 inches wider then a xj axle that's why I had to go with the JK wheels to get more wheel offset.... It's been alot of work getting ready to put them under...

I hear ya there Jon. Done a lot of work on my axles to get them ready to go under, and I don't have the benefit of being able to buy a truss for the front. By the way, I watched that vid and I like the idea for the sliders. I need to build something like that for the back of the XJ. The wife likes to cook when we travel and setting up a kitchen for her is a lot of work. I want to build a modular roll out kitchen that only takes minutes to set up and take down.

That's the same reason Missy got a big kitchen in the teardrop, Cooking is her favorite part of camping.

I plan on a modular design that will fit the XJ, pickup and a trailer yet to be built. I figure that ought to cover it. We like to camp where there is no one else around
