Beater XJ

Picked up this 91 Limited last weekend and thought I would post a few pics as I fix it up. Here it is as I bought it last weekend. It had a mix of different 33" tires and a ton of body damage and broken front windsheild.

I took it to get glass the next day and got some new Goodyear Duratrac 33x12.5r15's put on today. The ride is way smoother than I expected for a hybrid tire.

It already had a lift on it. I think it is a 4", but I'm not sure of the brand.

I scored some new manual doors for cheap off craigslist to replace the trail damaged ones.

I'm working on cutting the rockers out today to add some 2x6 3/16 square bar for sliders. Here is where I'm at now.

The paint is some cheap spray on latex army green. I like the green but its chipping off so I will be Herculining the jeep with green tinted liner on the outside.

Those coils look like rubicon express.

What are your plans for it?

Keep up the good work! I think youll like those tires too.

Re: Beater XJ

Thanks, I did alot of research on the tires and they stack up to the MTR's with a slight disadvantage in mud/rock but way better snow/ice/rain/wear/street manners. This will be my pick the kids up from school/wheelin jeep.

That's a great tire choice for that, way better than the bfg a/t... I put them on my aunts tj and have been really happy with them.

Re: Beater XJ

Finally got some time to work on it today. Hopefully I can finish up all the welding tomorow so I can get those sliders and jams herculined and put the doors on for a trip Saturday, going shark fishing.

I'm putting four of these tabs on each side, might come back with more supports later.





On the jeep



Started trimming the rear wheel arch and doing the quarter fold. Need to finish tacking the fenders and the box fold.

Re: Beater XJ

I will be another to say those tires are great. Ran them on my olf toyota pickup. Did great on everything I put the truck through. I would recommend them to anyone that has a DD/weekend wheeler.
