Icelandic XJ on 38" tires

Hi everyone


Pictures; http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s... a7fd05&type=1


I registered on this site just now and this is my first post. I've been browsing this forum and I see how different our modifications here in Iceland are from yours.

This is my '97 XJ originally equipped with 242 engine, AW4, NP 231, 8,25" rear axle and D30 Reverse front axle.

My midifications:

Engine:
2,5" exhaust with cherry bomb vortex muffler. No catalyst converter. K&N cone filter, right now I'm making Cold air intake - pictures coming soon. Will be able to connect the air intake through the top of the firewall.

Transmission:
Added extra cooler for the transmission and will maybe install a thermometer to the trans.

Front axle:
4,56 differential and torsen truetrack locker. Adjustable KONI gas shocks. MOOG progressive springs which are made for ZJ.

Rear axle:
Ford 9" from early bronco, 28 spline, fitted with 4,57 diff. and torsen truetrack locker. Gabriel gas shocks. Thinking about making A-link spring suspension this autum.

T-case:
Installed Advance Adapters SYE kit.

Also:
Strong tie-in hooks front and rear (not sure if I'm using the right words).
9" Hella Luminator with 55w Xenon kit
Yellow Hella 55w foglights
Extra Reverse lights
VHF radio
GPS
Platform for 6 Jerry Cans instead of the rear seat
Bracket for 60 l. fuel barrel on the front end
AC pump out of Renault Megane used as air pump
10 l. aluminum air reservoir (the AC pump builds up 100 psi in the reservoir).

The car is only lifted between 4 and 5 inches. To make room for the tires it takes alot of cutting and welding. I hope you enjoy my photos.

Re: Icelandic XJ on 38" tires

38"s on a stock D30?? Scary lol, but dang that is pretty freak'n sweet I must say. I saw that barrel strapped to the front and was like WTF is that winch?! You really buried those 38"s up front in that one pic. Keep it up!

Re: Icelandic XJ on 38" tires

my.02:

get yourself a 35 spline detroit and some chromoly shafts to go with for that 9" OR a 40spline spool

then build yourself a 35 spline 9" for the front with d60 outers.

I know guys blowing 35spline d60 shafts and r&P sets in the snow on 40"s... that 28 spline garbage aint gonna hold up. and that 30 is going to go nuclear quick.
