well i picked up a set of zj canyon rims for the jeep yesterday for 50 bucks! no pics yet im waiting till i get tires for them. 2 have some clear coat peeling on the centers but nothing i cant live with. if anyone has a decent set of 30 or 31 mts or ats for sale reasonably priced let me know. lift should be going on hopefully not this weekend but next weekend if nothing comes up.i would do it this weekend but i have philly modifiers at atco with the pontiac saturday and our meeting on sunday!

looks good... gotta love the 2 doors. Not really sure the camo cladding would go with the white but thats just my opinion. I would think about taking off the rubber pieces and maybe herculining that bottom area and the flares.
well the lift kit is started. the xj is currently sitting in my buddys shop right now. the front is finished and the back is being a pain in the ass. it should be done tomorrow and ill get pics. judging by the front it looks like i got alot more then 3 inches out of the new coils. im hoping to be just as happy with the back.

steve are you doing add a leaf in the rear ? if you are me and kurt found out its easyer to put them on with the pack still on the jeep but you need C clamps <( that was for kurt ) its easyer than trying to bust the shackle bolt lose

yea i did AAL. we took the whole leaf pack out and yea it was a huge pain the a## breaking those bolts loose. i actually had to do bastard packs though cause i had 2 cracked leaves. luckily my dads neighboor had 2 leaf packs out of an old 2 door explorer that we used. its a little stiffer in the back but it worked out ok. ill post up pics tomorrow since its already dark out. i will say though i got almost 5 inches of lift out of the kit from where the ride height was originally and the jeep sits 2 inches higher then my old xj did. also with the being said the 30s look tiny on there haha but its all good.
thanks for the comments guys. ive been driving the jeep all over the place since i put the lift on. so far no issues what so ever. vibes from the driveline angles are minimal to none, the ride is actually quite good considering how i had to do my rear leaf packs, and whatever quirks my motor was having the past few long drives i took it on seem to have disappeared. my dads taking it to work to give it a front alignment and quick look over for me. ill probably get around to rear when it finally just breaks haha. overall im very happy with how it came out and as long as my dad doesnt find anything when he takes it to work im ready for some runs!
