1" JKS Shackle
5.5" Deaver coils
(I am doing the TNT ubolt eliminator kit in the rear netting 5.5" lift f/r)
JKS quicker discos and bar pin eliminators
Bilstein 5100 shocks
Wilwood D44 big caliper/drilled/slotted rotors
Iron Rock D44 Truss
Iron Rock Hack-n-Tap SYE
Iron Rock drop pitman arm
D30 Tube seals and sleeves
Rough Country Apillar light mounts

VERY soon I will order the longarms and the winch.

Re: hjeepxj's build thread

So, not much work wise, stupid holidays are busy.

Got the front bumper installed:



I *may* attempt the rear JCR w/tire carrier next weekend...

The Colorado Chapter is going to put together a build day and we're going to learn how to cut some old bracketry off a D30 and a D44 and weld some new stuff on. Some time in January, shooting to have the axles all the way finished by March.

Re: hjeepxj's build thread

Looking good!

Do you have any more pictures of those LED headlights, in action?

Would like to get a little bit better idea on them before sourcing a carton

I assume you saw the low and high beam pics I posted on Facebook, correct?

I can get more pics in a day or two however.

And thank you!!

Re: hjeepxj's build thread

The low beam is a little blurry, next time I'm out at night I'll try to get some more pics.

Wow. Can the stock head lights just be switched out with these or does the wiring need to be upgraded as well?
New to the forum. Just bought a 2001 XJ.
Also, where did you get the mounting hardware for the flashlight and axe?
Thanks!

Any time buddy! Welcome to the forum! Honored to be your first post.

The lights are 100% bolt in. No harness upgrades needed.

Both mounts came from Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/Original-Quic...ick+fist+clamp

https://www.amazon.com/Maglite-Unive...ag+light+clamp

IMO worth every penny to have quality lights in a kit.

Re: hjeepxj's build thread

A pic that would be very helpful to show off the headlights would be facing a wall in a parking lot or a flat building... this really helps to show off the Spread/Cut-off/How Wide the lights are. They look good on your pics but they also look just like my Cibie E-Codes... I'd guess your LED headlights have better cut-off and spread but it's hard to tell against the trees and side of the road. At least that's my opinion... and you don't have to take pics just for me.

Oh, and thanks for the link to the XJ LED package lights for the interior. I may just have to do this little upgrade now.
