I just ordered an ARB deluxe Bull bar front bumper. Next is some bolt on sliders for rocker and side protection. Also, some Rigid/ Trucklite headlights! The list never seems to end! I will say that I have been on borrowed time not running with sliders! Damage done to the sides and The unibody construction of the XJ can stop you fast. Making the XJ an unsafe vehicle to drive.

Yes the list never gets shorter!!! Now I am looking into front & rear lockers and a rear gear, from 3:73 to 4:88.. Then I'm looking at front and rear bumpers, winch, 315 / 70/ 17's, compressor, etc, etc, etc...

Started going through some of my light weight Fly gear, on the top of one of my Jeeps! Does that count? Vance.

Yesterday I installed a new rear suspension in my Tacoma. All-Pro Offroad Expedition series 3" springs, Trail Gear U-bolt flip kit and extended brake lines with Bilstein 5125 series shocks. Going to be a HUGE improvement over what I had. Now to get it loaded up with gear and go out to stress test it. As of now the front suspension is factory springs with Bilstein 5100 adjustable struts set to max (2.5inch) lift. In the future I'll be adding 3" coils with the struts set at .5' lift. But for now, what little extra cash I have needs to go to a new set of BFG's.

See y'all on the trails.

Bought some rock sliders and frame brackets from JCR, today! The rock sliders are the Classic powder coated sliders. The brackets, really help your bumper stay on your Jeep XJ with a hard pull! Having the uni- body construction on the XJ you need the extra strength. This bracket also helps with the steering box and give more strength too. Vance.

I finally got around to extending the wire harness for my hood mounted ditch lights. The harness wasn't long enough to tuck under the cowl and reach the passenger side light. I had it run against the firewall and ziptied to the AC lines which looked janky. I didn't wire loom or heat shrink large enought to fit 2 14ga wires so I twisted them together like we used to do for complicated car alarm installs. It came out nice and clean although you'll never see it under the cowl. :)

I decided to mount the Arkon tablet arm to the transmission tunnel. I didn't feel like modifying the passenger seat bracket to try and make a mount. Once I get the bar shaped the way I want I will try to stiffen it up by adding another length of metal inside the loom and then pin it to point higher up on the console with a clamp. It's currently very sturdy but the tablet wobbles a lot if that make sense.
