Default My 1990 XJ

This is my jeep. Its a 1990 fuel injected 4.0L Auto. My main goal has been to build a budget minded but still somewhat capable rig.
The lift consists of stock F150 coils and a 2" spacer up front. Tonight actually... Ill be swapping in a set of 4" lift F150 coils and removing the 2" spacer for about a 7-7.5" lift.
The rear lift is made up of home-made rear shackles, a 2" block, and I did a homegrown add-a-leaf with some leafs out of a set of bronco II springs.
All said and done the xj will have a total of 7-7.5" of lift
Im running 33x10.5 BFG Mud Terrains and did some minor fender well trimming.
Rear axle was welded up.
I also stripped the carpet and pad out of the interior and herculined the entire floor. All that wet carpet not only stunk... but probably weighed 200lbs lol.
I built the front bumper using a piece of 5' C-channel, some 1" pipe, some 1.5" pipe, and some 1/8" steel diamond plate. I probably have $100 tops into it...
plans for a rear bumper are in the works...

At this point... including the purchase of the vehicle Im only into it $1200

I have a lot more planned... stay tuned for more pictures.
