    Maybe one day. I’ve still got some grudge at windrock park I need to take of. Being on a trail for 24 hrs was fun.

    New body lines. I’m pretty happy with the cuts. 569E241D-B8AF-4D6B-BCAC-E35E05C7146D.jpg46E28E0A-83E3-4828-80E4-BC54ABBE46FD.jpg

    You gonna put any type of fender on there? Just something to keep the rocks and stuff from flying up and breaking a window or something silly?

    I agree with @boondoc89. I think that XJ would rock a set of flat flares. Not a fan of pocket flares. But they just might work on this Jeep. Probably gonna have to custom fit'em.

    With the large fender cut-outs to make room for the 40s @acerwin is probably going to have to make custom fenders. Just have never envisioned an XJ with some flats but with @acerwin + buddy its possible. My vote is on custom black plastic BW flares or pocket flares

    Nah no fenders. Not a fan of them. Just keeping it like this and going to send it.

    Had to cut them like this for being as low as it is with 40’s and how far my front axle is pushed forward.

    Well like always shit has changed.

    Found out that my front yoke seal in tcase is toast (dripping tcase fluid out like crazy). Going to order another and get that shit replaced.

    Not gonna go with the driveshaft parts for the rear I had. Just many possibilities for it to bind up and break. Ordering new parts.

    So this will be what’s happening this weekend instead of wheeling.

    You must have discovered crude oil in your backyard . I would have run out of money just buying the steel you put on that beast

    Ordered a 1410 slip yoke kit from wide open designs.

    Rear shocks came in today also from a buddy.

    Are your rear tires gonna rub into the fenders at full flex?

    Doesn't seem to be much more sheet metal to trim. Some fabricated bump stops will address that issue.
