    Long time 2000 XJ owner, finally mod ready

    Hello guys, decided to finally join the forums and share my little project.
    Family has had this for a while, and they finally decided they were going to sell it, so i decided to bring it back to life.
    Last 5-6 years lived in Oregon, went to Maryland, not its back home in Michigan...
    2000 XJ w the LP 30 up front and D35 rear...worst setup of jeeps ever but new axles are in the works. Here are some pics.
    January last year when i brought it home. Suspension was pretty rough, steering was like driving a boat, brakes were pretty rough, basically needed some major TLC.

    Thanks guys! Glad to be here!

    Here are some more pics as i progressed to get few more necessary mods to her! Most might be out of order as they are shared between photobucket and google drive

    Here is her before and after lift next to my lowered Yukon





    After some paying attention to the trans temps in the summer at the dunes, it was time for a trans cooler and gauge as well as a higher amp alt

    Welcome to Wayalife. It looked pretty good, for its age. I like what you are doing with it.

    After wanting more lift, as everyone always does, i finally convinced that i rather do the gears and axles prior...

    Found an 8.25 for basically free, or i would have gotten a ford 8.8, and scored a junk yard HP30 for about 100 dollars...

    front is getting an air locker, while the rear gets a powertrax no slip and liberty disc brake conversion, all mated to 4.56 gears

    Being open diff front and rear really got me to learn and play with gears.







    Snow or sand, most of the stuff i have only done so far, she constantly struggles getting thru with the open diffs...yeah i never really get stuck stuck, but i guess its just a reason for me to get axles
