Talking XJOE The Punisher Build

So I've been lurking this forum reading posts for some time now, I am a recent XJ owner and have always loved this Jeep platform but until now I have never owned one myself, and likewise I have never posted. Until now. Let me unveil all my hard work and effort over the past few months. Allow me to Introduce, The Punisher. Before and After the install of Rough Country's 6.5" Short Arm Lift Kit. I am really digging this lift and was pretty easy to install even if I did it all by myself. I did install the drop brackets, HD Tie Rod bar, Extended Brake lines, SYE and CV Driveshaft along with this kit, What a difference! I cannot wait to take this out to my Property and let loose! I did have to remove the front bumper end caps to allow the 33x12.50r15 tires on 3.75 backspaced wheels to fully turn, not a big deal as I will be upgrading the front bumper to a winch bumper, maybe another Rough Country Product is in my near future. I really think this kit is the best bang for your buck, Thank you Rough Country, for not making my Just Empty Every Pocket-JEEP too expensive to build. Thank you!

It looks pretty good so far. Black is a PITA, but it looks like it's in decent condition. I recommend clear paint protection film on the front hood and fender wells, and possibly on the lower doors to keep the paint from chipping in the future.

Just a heads up, if those headlights are not DOT approved, and will blind oncoming traffic.

Thanks Guys, and craigjacob1 believe it or not but my headlights are DOT approved and they do not blind oncoming drivers any more than the hundreds of idiots that drive around with their brights on or with their lightbar on, plus I know how to adjust the throw of my headlights, many others don't even know how to change the oil in their engines, I've passed multiple cops and never once had an issue with the headlights
