Overall I am very happy with the off-road capability and the flex of my vehicle with the rubicon express kit. I really do enjoy the go anywhere mentality I have with this thing.
More pics of my bumper mods, and maybe some wheeling tomorrow.

I don't know if its the angle or what but the first pic the back looks stiff. Might be the shackle angle. Nice jeep though.

Not sure what you mean. Both tires are still on the ground, how else should it look?

its actually is a bit stiff as far as flex goes, but I just did aal... I know but I did not have the money plus it was a good thing because I dont think I can get my right front leaf mount bolt out. I had to do that aal with the spring still connected.

no I actually never had a rear sway bar. I just did the aal and it has stock shackles. I am going up another 2" this week or next week so I should hopefully get a bit more after that

well I actually dont know what package my xj had but it sure is interesting... Here is a list of what it came with.
4.0 aw4 242 d30/d35
front skid t-case skid and gas tank skid
ext idle switch
power windows and mirrors
vinyl seats and carpet
and no factory roof rack...
Am I crazy or this kinda a strange setup to come from the factory?
