New to PNW with new XJ

Hey yall. Moved up here (Portland Area) last year and just got myself back into an XJ. Have had a few XJ's and Mj's and a ZJ over the years and was semi-active in the Sierra Chapter.

Picked up a unicorn 99 2 door 5 speed in the blue/slate color. Was looking to see if anyone recognized it. Looks like it was initially built up about a decade ago, and it's a little beat-up but has good bones. I'll get some pics up here later to see if anyone recognizes it. It has about 6.5" long arm lift, Rustys steering/suspension parts, warn bumpers, 4.10 gears, fiberglass front fenders. Roof rack.

Been itch'n to go explore the PNW trails and plan to be out there shortly and definitely open to joining some trips.

Welcome!

Rig doesn't sound familiar as far as old member rides go. Sounds like a good platform though.

35's swapped for 33's (measure out at 32").

Roof rack delete (I never use them).

All new brakes front and rear.

Stinkyfab motor mounts (tranny mount to come in future)

Tons of random repairs.

Now looking for 4.5" lift coils and shocks to lower this thing down. Also installing the no-lift shackle boxes in back to try to keep the leafs that are back there now (might modify the leaf packs).

It's getting there. Goal is low, wide, and fast(ish).
