This place isn't very active... I guess fb killed everything.
Go to boostwerks to look at rear shock relocation. There's also a YouTube video or two of people installing his shock towers.

Re: Anyone alive here

Seems that when they did the revamp it kind of died off and as the years go by there are less and less xj's

Very slow but a meager life is here. Torqs has a good build thread in there NWC with a detailed rear shock relocation plan.

Re: Anyone alive here

Still around. With the smaller number of cheap XJs around and the explosion of FB groups we're probably seeing a lot less traffic and new registrations/memberships.

I stole the boost werx shock tower idea then after building mine I'm left wondering what holds the boost werx towers in.
Theyd need substantial framing inside the hatch area to survive normal rd vibrations not to mention shock loads pushing and pulling

.

I'll get some pictures of mine in a few

Been here since the beginning. If you can't view Photobucket images, download the hotlink fix. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...bifiaedg?hl=en

How I did it frame is plated for about 15" then towers built off them. Can run any length shock . Think these are only 9ish stroke shocks.
You might notice the othere shocks hanging out in the stock locations. I've been slacking on removing them and they're brackets.

Re: Anyone alive here

I still check in now and then, password resets on here were a bit painful but sorted now. F__K Facebk!!! My 1990 is still chugging, trying to get a good alternator (1990 XJ - Limited Renix) and though I did apply the Kelley's WIP cables and fuse etc. still have some minor electrics issues. Stereo loses power when I use turn indicator stalk (left and right).

Anyway, glad is still here! even if kelleyswip is not functioning anymore :-(

Yeah, not a facebook guy either, I will never support zuckerberg.

As for I am sure the traffic will go up if they allowed non paying members to post photos, and make edits to the posts they write.

Without the ability to post photos or edit errors in my post, it makes website very unattractive to non payers like me. And I have free nonfaceplant (facebook) alternative that allow free photos and editing.

The website is well laidout, moderated well, has good folks, but the lack of photo posting and edit ability make it my second choice after Cherokee Forum, which has a more clunky looking website, but gives free photo and edit ability, it also has good folks there and good moderators.

I am dumb, and new at the jeep thing, so I appreciate all info, and this website does offer great info, but the lack,of photos and editing makes it difficult to use. Id love to get your opinions of things I have done on my jeep, or to help me solve a problem, things I need photos to show you. So I go to Cherokee Forum for that.

Using a forum like this with no photo ability is like going back to to the text only dial up days of the early internet!

The competing Jeep or XJ websites do allow free photos and editing. So why pay a fee when another place offers it for free? And that site appears to have more traffic too. I wonder why?

If free photo posting is allowed, traffic here will go up, and that means that will be able to justify higher ad prices, which vendors will gladly pay for do to the increased traffic.

If was the only XJ website around, yeah, maybe I would pay, but hey you got more than one competitors offering simular products for free.

Also I have been involved in other makes of cars websites for over 20 years, all of them free, all allowing photos, editing etc... They have grown and grown.

Consider it! It will be good
