An XJ build thread!

[QUOTE=upsidedownxj;246699234]Sold my CavFab kit and went with the Trail Forged setup. The powder coating alone was worth swapping for, and it clears my trackbar hardware!!


Make sure and get some duplicate hardware. I have seen two of those style kits snap the passenger knuckle bolt on the trail. Carry spare bolts.

Re: An XJ build thread!

Got some much needed progress in these past couple weekends! Working at Tesla currently, building their battery cell manufacturing facility. ****in balls to the wall busy. But found some down time to put in on Jasmine!

After much debate and consideration, I decided on rock sliders from DirtBound, as well as a steering box spacer. Took forever, but the quality is great and the price was as well. (price is key here)







Installed.

Re: An XJ build thread!

Also installed some Rigid Radiance Pod lights. I used RC mounting brackets. That is and will remain the only RC product on this Jeep.. These things are not that bright @ 900 lumens but I got em more for aesthetics. Installing a light bar later when I can afford a good one.



She also got an oil change today, prepping for a trip up to Oregon near Grants Pass. Anyone have any recommendations for trails in that area?
