Well, the XJ is back from the shop with a few new front end parts to reverse most of the 101 damage. Got Jason to toss in a set of HID lights well it was in the shop (Chanda) as well, so hopefully the night vision will now improve a bit.
The repairs ate up my "new tire money", but hopefully some new shoes won't be too far off. I'm hoping to do the tires and the next batch of mods all in one shot, so hopefully I can get this thing going again by the end of August. Picked up a set of 1.25" lift shackles for the rear end (thanks rws), and a set of JKS ACOS for the front. Should boost up the lift a bit while keeping the ride quality from the nice OME bits that are currently on.
JKS front disconnects, and an Or-Fab front winch bumper are next on the "to be ordered" list, and thanks to meeting TL-Iguana and Pookapotamus, I now find myself intrigues with on-board air.....lol.
