Back in an XJ

Been neglecting Naxja, you guys have always done me great sharing your guys knowledge with me. Thought I'd share my build over here.
Got this last November 94 4.0 auto 144k, non-disco, I'm the third owner. AC/heater work. Previous owner did a bunch of fuel line work to get it to pass smog which it did easily.

8.8, Grizzly locker with Yukon shafts

35s going 4.88s

Re: Back in an XJ

Turns out my exhaust was getting in the way a little but just trimmed the cross member a hair and it fit fine.

Re: Back in an XJ

Frame stiffeners were a pain in the butt. One thing I didn'e like about the cavfab cross member was the bolts hitting the fuel line but we'll see how that plays out. Besides that it's super stout.

Re: Back in an XJ

My stock drive shaft seems too short barely connecting when fully extended so this is the before pic, brought the lowers in a little, haven't gotten pics yet but still seems to long.
