Stock bumps, one rear is actually missing.
I don't want to buy shocks tell I have achieved a lift hight I am happy with. I'm cheap like that.. Ha

Got all excited and went and ordered these a moment ago.

This is what i plan to do since i have some scrap metal laying around, and it will be cheaper then replacing my current extended bump stops.


Now i wish i had the money for new leafs. My Dakota pack is sagging a little. RE will probably be the route i go for new leaves swell.

I have sacked out stock leafs on the Xj right now and I'm running 33"s. haha.

I figure after two years with the xj it's time I bought some.

Ill probably order 5.5 coils to level I out next time I'm home

I like your idea, don't see why it wouldn't work fine

If you guys ever wheel in the valley area hit me up. I'm always down to wheel when I'm in town.
All my friends rides are broke or they sold them.

That was a short hitch at work. haha

Got started on the rear springs. I wanted to get more done but my buddy's talked me into going to the Tuesday night fights.
Will hopefully have these done tomorrow.

Gonna be a lot bigger! Remember, those rear springs will sag down after a bit.
Throw some weight in the back when you go
to work to help speed it along. Lol

It's still on the 33" irok's.

The RE leafs moved the axle forward a bit. I'm thinkin rather then a shackle relocate kit I could just move the front leaf bolt back about 2". That would move the axle back where it should be and would give me a better shackle angle.

Mobbin, you've been PM'd.

Just picked up a set of RE 5.5 coils.

I'm having a hard time bitting the bullit and ordering LA's. may end up ordering drop brackets because I'm cheap like that. Lol

Make sure to check your pinion angle.

I'll have a new set of RE drop brackets avail. soon. Lemme know if you want them.
Can also do some yard wheeling if you wanna see how well the flex is with drop brackets.

Might have another fender too if you have any paint left

AND, I think I'm almost ready to get rid of that D44 with good axle shafts and a welded carrier with 3.73s, and the matching front non disco D30

Let me know when the brackets are up for grabs.

I still have the fenders from the silver Xj I got from you. If I don't order some fg fenders soon those may find their way onto the orange Xj.

May be interested in the axles. Which rig are those out of? You going full widths or?

The brackets are on the silver xj for mock up. I had to go with rough countrys on that one. (I'll show you next time you're over)

I think I have a single fender. Keep the silver ones for something else.

The axles are out of derecs old "trail rated XJ". They're "spares" in that pile of $hit under the big white jeep. lol
