Default 2000 XJ Overland Build

Hi All - I'm putting up my overland-designed XJ for someone to take across the finish line and enjoy. Standard story of guy who has jeep, then has a kid and buys a house, therefore a project must be sold :-(. I've owned it for 5-6 years now and have been building it up as I started getting into overlanding. My build link is below for the entire write up. The build link currently does not show the dirtbound offroad steel fenders, Boostwerks Engineering ultimate steering brace, fixed roof rust or my completed front axle swap with 1 ton steering. Asking $8k (does not include RTT). I have over $25,000 in parts/labor with receipts from legit shops in the area that can vouch for the work.. All documentation will go along with the jeep.


The Good:Front Suspension/Axle:Rock Krawler 3 link long arm front suspensionFront coil springs (4.5" Rubicon Express Heavy Duty)Brand new rebuilt front HP Dana 30 axle--4.88 gearsYukon chromoly axle shaftsBrand new outter axle sealsJCR axle truss, upper and lower C gusset trusses as wellARB Air locker in frontG2 heavy duty diff coverCustom relocated front sway bars for 3 link long armsSteering/Brakes:Boostwerks Engineering Ultimate XJ Steering BraceCustom 1 ton over the knuckle cross-over steering2004 grand cherokee knuckles with Akebono calipers2004 Calipers and rotorsEBC Yellow Stuff Brake PadsCentric Premium Rotors Rear Suspension:Chrysler 8.25 axle with mechanical locker in rear--4.88 gearsCompletely rebuilt rear suspension on Old Man Emu rear leaf springsG2 Heavy Duty diff coverWheels/Tires:True beadlocks from Champion Offroad5 33x12.50r15 BFG NA KO2 tiresCustom sandblasted and powdercoated wheels from Coatings USA Brand new Grade 8 hardware (bolts and washers)Other Upgrades:IBS dual battery system with second odyssey deep cycle battery--all utilizing 2 gauge wiringEngel 45 quart fridgeViair onboard air system: twin compressors with 2.5 air tank.

The bad:
Front e-locker is installed, but needs to be wired to a switch
Roof rack needs to be repainted one day
Herculiner exterior has some parts that is not perfect anymore
Sway bar brackets need to be redone. After the front axle swap with one ton steering, the drag link hits the bracket
Driveline angle needs to be fixed after the front axle swap. Jeep has some highway vibration because of it
Hood latch stopped working. Just purchased Autofab hood latches to replace entire system (in progress)

I will post pictures of interior tomorrow when I can get some new photos in daylight.
