Project Budget Beater

I have slowly been working and building my new to me XJ. Figured it was time to let the cat out of the bag. I have given myself a budget of $1000 to buy a rig, build it, and be on the trails. Can it be done? We shall see!

Some stats,
94, 2 door, 2.5, AX5, 231, 8 1/4, 4:10s, BB, 15x7 chrome blingers. All for the lofty sum of- $300 (Had a cracked head)
nused 2.5- $100
33/12.50/15 Goodyear MTRs- $260
transfer skid-$40
tow hooks and brackets-$60
triple gauge set from Summit- $30
paint, tape and sand paper- $20

So far the XJ runs and drives very well. The 33s put a hurtin on the 2.5 in high range but it does OK in low. It sould be fairly easy to meet my budget. I need to pick up a few other nick nack parts to complete the build,

bump stops
shocks
rear tow point
tank skid
maybe a front bumper (if funds allow)

Enough jibber jabber.

Here is the Cherokee County Rock Squad XJ.






I think the 33's fit well on the BB

You've done a good job getting good parts for cheap. You must be one of those "in the right place at the right time" guys.

Keep us updated.
