What could possibly be a good reason to do this to an XJ? I could see it being doable as long as you cage it. The pilars will support nothing after being hacked like that.

IT WILL FOLD LIKE A TACO!!!! THE XJ IS MADE OF PAPER!!!

heh heh....
i think it looks pretty cool, cuts down on some weight if you have a cage, when i chop mine, its getting fully chopped off and caged, not just the rear. [how much can you really fit into a 2 foot bed lol]

it does look damned cool though with a cage

just so people understand why some do it

--Richard aka "Goatman"

My goal was to create more rear clearance, to eliminate the potential for rock damage to the rear side windows, roof line, and D pillar. I built my rear bumper and the rear floor so a 37" tire could lay flat (which you couldn't fit inside) and made a custom aluminum storage box to go over the tire. If needed, I can strap stuff down on top of the storage box. I don't want to steal this thread, this is a nice build going so far, but here's a pic of my rear storage.

Good Logic: Get all materials first (such as thin sheet metal to fix up cuts, roll cage), then chop and add new materials.

Bad Logic: Chop now, fix later.

I chose Bad logic. Its been 2 years, and I have not yet been able to touch up, bondo, ect....

If I could go back, I would choose good logic; however, 85% of the time I learn from trial and error. People inquire about my actions from time to time just to learn from my mistakes. I don't mind.

Good logic = very happy in long run
Bad logic= happy too; there is just some regret

Yes, because we all know that clubs and internet forums have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with helping others and INTERACTING with something other than your keyboard!!!!

Did you ever consider that maybe he was helping?

If somebody stops you on the street and asks you for directions, do you tell them a round-about, ass backwards, route that will add 9 extra days to their trip? No, you tell them the quickest way to get there.

Sure, but do you think that's it's kind of an A-hole thing to tell a guy asking for directions to go to the nearest gas station and buy a map?

Nice try, but it's more like pointing out the map that's sitting on his passenger seat, free of charge. Somebody has even written clear cut directions on how to read the map.

Somebody with WAAAAY too much time on their hands! Maybe they should make a site where you can search for modified XJ pics while they're at it!! http://www.slicky.net/smilies/rolleyes.gif
