My XJ's Big Boy Stage II

Interested to see how your front coilovers end up. I am prepping my front for coilovers now. The hoops are going to displace a bunch of shit.

Yeah though I'm picking this up this week I doubt I'll have them on before my first ride. I am really torn about how I want to do my hoops. I don't necessarily want stand alone hopes and want to some how tie them into my cage but try to come up with a design that works well, that isn't over kill and doesn't look stupid is becoming a challenge.

Re: My XJ's Big Boy Stage II

I'm in the same boat. Bought some hoops but master cylinder was in the way, made some hoops around the master but we're just way too big. So I'm on to plan c with a bar running across engine tying into my fenders and then have to figure out how to brace it all.

Orfab made that one. I honestly wish I never got rid of it. They do not make it anymore and I have been trying to find another to put on my comanche.

Re: My XJ's Big Boy Stage II

Yeah, I want one too, I like how the driving/fog lights are protected, winch placement, and I'd imagine a tube bumper is lighter than a plate steel bumper, good luck finding one

My XJ's Big Boy Stage II

Okay so ordered the tube for the rear uppers today. Still need to order my lower heims. With school being done I can focus more on it this thing. Also helps I got rid of my Comanche. Traded it for a LJ that isnít as much of a project so will not drain me of a whole lot hopefully. Gonna start getting all no money loose ends tied up this week and hopefully get my heims early next week. Then should be assembly time!

The LJ:

Sweet LJ, Wish I never sold mine I had a patriot blue 05' with 4" lift and 35's. They gain value every year.

Re: My XJ's Big Boy Stage II

Is it a factory LJ rubicon?

Unfortunately it is not. The guy I got it from had a factory tj rubi with a rebuilt title he had swapped everything with. Trying to work out the deal he made of very clear that he was keeping the tcase but I couldnít complain.

Re: My XJ's Big Boy Stage II

It's still really cool. If I ever hit the lottery that's my plan with my Xj, find a 03-06 tj rubi wrecked or rusty and start swapping parts to the Xj.
