Re: Introduce yourself

finally paid for my membership last night...

got my 2001 Solar Yellow XJ Sport in May 2005, and it's still stock. Well, I added Rustys tow hooks and a Class III hitch+reciver hook and strap and a CB, but... The XJ is a Sport, but it's got yellow/black leather seats and some other options that must have been custom ordered by the first owner. 4.0, Auto, D30/D35, no ABS.

I've wheeled it a bit for being stock, and after replacing the only real trail damage last night (crossmember customization at Rausch Creek), it's back to running smooth and quiet. I replaced the factory tires with 225/75/15 Dueler Revos and love them. Taken it on blue trails (and one low black) and haven't gotten stuck yet. I get stuck mudding, but that's because I drop the diffs or the whole frame on the ruts.

A Rubicon Express 3.5" lift is in the future, but probably not until 2007 unless I get a significant income boost to pay for the lift, SYE, and new tires. Figure it's best to enjoy it stock until I can put on a good sized lift instead of throwing money at budget lifts.

Re: Introduce yourself

Hello everyone! My name is Tim and I am located in Richmond, VA. I have been interested in Jeeps (primarily XJs) for years, but I continued in the "car scene" until several of my co-workers took me wheeling about a year ago. That is officially when I knew I had to bite the bullit, sell my cars, and buy an XJ. After searching for a year, and almost settling on some clunkers, I finally found the rig I own today (purchased about three months ago). It is a '00 XJ with 52,000 miles on it. Although I didn't build this rig to its current standpoint, I am very proud of it. Here is a list of goodies:

*6.5" Rock Krawler long arm (this is the rig RK used to develope this lift...it's the gray '00 on their website under the 6.5" longarm lift)
*Antirock swaybar system
*Bilstein 5150 shocks
*4:10 gears
*lockrite lockers front and rear
*33X12.50 MTR
*Custom prototype RK front and rear bumpers
*7000 lbs Champion (Sam's club special) winch
*SYE
*Ron Woods driveshaft
*8 1/4 rear axle
*Dana 30 front axle
*Cut fenders with Bushwacker flares
*Rock Rails
*Revolver shackles

As noted above, this rig is the rig RK used to develope their 6.5" longarm system. I've only wheeled it three times, but I love this thing. I've never had a more enjoyable time in any vehicle I've owned.

I will be taking this rig to BigDogs at the end of this month to REALLY put it through it's paces with me. I crushed a factory front lower control arm bracket the weekend before last, so I'm just waiting for my Rusty's upgrades to come in. I also have RK lower control arm reinforcement/skids that I am going to try and use with the Rusty's units. I won't be crushing that again!

You didn't need to cut the lower contolr arm mounts when the long arm went in?

Will also be at Big Dogs Ice Breaker. Should see ya there.

Re: Introduce yourself

Hey, I'm new here, was told about this place by MeavyMetal.

My name is Phil and I work for a gunsmith in my town.

My Rig:





---1989 Jeep XJ Cherokee Pioneer---
Rubicon Express 6025 3.5" Super Ride
Adjustable Track Bar
31x10.5 Procomp MudTerrains on Black Steel Rims
C4x4 Tow Hooks
Class III Hidden Hitch w/ Warn Reciever Shackle
JKS Quick Disconnects
Front Doorless Mod

Stuff to come:
Safari Rack
Gun Rack
Skids and Armor


When I moved back home from pittsburgh I was given this car as a graduation present...and I quickly started dumping money into it. I've only had the jeep for a few months now, got it back at the end of January. I didn't have a car in pittsburgh, so it was a well deserved present.

Not much really to say. I figured I spent enough money on my firearms, now I have to put some into my Jeep.

Re: Introduce yourself

Hey all, I'm Jeremy and new to Jeeps and wheelin'. I used to sell VW's and took an XJ in on trade so I snatched it up. Here are a couple pics of it last July 4th, my first day wheelin it is bone stock aside from the Thule rack.

gettin ready to pull my buddys yota out




Since then I put a Rusty's 3" AAL and 30" A/T's on it. Nothing too crazy as my budget is meager and it is now my DD since I am selling my GTI. I also got a hook up from a good friend on an ARB front bull bar and a set of Olympic rock rails. Alos got a custom cargo box / sub box for the rear cargo area, and have some IPF replacement head lights and Hella 500's on the way.

I don't know a whole lot about it other than it is a 2001 5spd sport. I beleive it has the Chrysler 8.25 rear diff, power windows and factory fogs. And just found out my throwout bearing is bad, so time for a clutch replacement in the very near future i guess.

I'm itchin to do some more wheelin when ever I can, and hopefully will make some meet & greets / trail rides.

Here's a pic of my GTI for the hell of it
