    ThatAmericanXJ Build

    I have been looking through my photos of the things I have done on my XJ. So I decided to start a build thread.

    Here are a couple pictures of the things I have already done to my jeep:

    Right after I put the lift and fender flares on.

    Removed the Carpet to Rhinoline or LineX the whole thing

    I Also installed a Smittybilt XRC Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier but for some reason the computer wouldn't let me upload the pictures. So I just added them here.

    Relocated the license plate and wired in some LEDs for Plate Lights

    Also looking into making an OnBoard Air System out of my A/C Condensor.

    I also have some plans for securing the Pelican Case and Tool Box to the rear Cargo area. Stay Tuned for that.









    REMEMBER!!

    So many possibilities with the metal body and available parts. With just enough room for customization as well!

    That's why I love the XJs. Also because they are cheaper to get ahold of too

    Finally fixed that duct tape job after 4 months... Haha

    Next up on my list is to sand down this rust and see what needs to be patched up. This is under the carpet on the driver side foot well. The passenger side has about a quarter of this amount. I plan on Line-X'in the whole inside on the floor boards. Also going to replace the plastics along the inside with metal and Lone-X that as well. Photos to follow.

    Had to cut out the whole left side of the driver side foot well due to rust. Going to patch it with some new steel then rhino line the whole interior. image.jpg

    Gutted the whole thing also. Along with all the plastics. Thinking of keeping them off and making metal liners down along the bottom so I can rhino line this as well. I also have a couple ideas for the rear inside quarter panels. image.jpg
