Default 2001 XJ 4.5" Lifted

Thisis my 2001 XJ that I bought off of here about 6yrs ago, "Project dowork". Not much has remained since then, but the thread in the build section is still there to see what I started with. I've spent the last year tearing this thing down then building it back up. So what started as a leaky radiator and loose steering gear escalated into a massive project.

Quickinfo: 2001 XJ, 194k miles, AW4, LP30, NP231 w/SYE, 4.56 gears, 35" KM2s,15 x 8 Cragar Soft 8s

Price:$5999 obo
Location: Macomb, MI

So here's how it went down:
Tore apart complete front end.
Bought OE radiator and XJ steering gear

Then the “while I'm in this deep why not” came into effect
Then it escalated to buying
Rubicon Express Long Arms
Rubicon Express 4.5" Coils
Rubicon Express brake lines
Bilstein 5125’s 10” travel
JKS Steering reinforce kit
HD Frame stiffeners
Urethane rear bumps
Rebuilt calipers + pads
Powerstop rotors
External trans cooler
Trans cooler hard lines
Trans filter, gasket, and oil
140amp Grand Cherokee Alt
New A/C pump and accumulator
Overhead console

Then before the madness started it already had the following:
Serious UTK steering, also have the end to convert to OTK
Double shear track bar, forgot what brand
JKS Adjustable Coil Spacers
HD ball joints
New U-Joints
Spectre cowl intake
Bored throttle body
4 hole injectors
4ga battery wire
Headlight harness + H4 headlights
Pioneer stereo with 2 amps + sub
Detours Tailbone tire carrier
Aussie rear locker
Shackle relocate box with 1” shackle
Rough Country leafs w/urethane bushings, sorry didn’t change them out yet.
RC sway bar discos
Quadratec Rear Disc Brakes
1 ” wheel spacers
Forgot brand of front bumper, in build thread, but fabbed up big mounts
Trailer hitch
Bushwacker Flares

There is more, but is easier to see it then describe it. I’m finishing squaring everything up right now, so it hasn’t even been out with all the new stuff yet. Yes, there is some rust, but no holes. I have a ton of build pics if you need to see something specific under the paint.
