    Default Harlan MJ

    This is what I've been up to the last few weeks. I dove'd the front, Cut down the unibody to the rear spring hanger, bobbed the bed 9 in, Took all the old renix stuff out and rewired it and installed everything from a rusted out 94xj, changed it from a standard to AW4. Built a tire carrier and I'm finishing the front bumper today....

    Thanks guy's, the xj on the hill James is my brothers. I'm kind of the xj guy around here and I do alot of work on them. That one's in the process of a front axle swap, I have a concrete pad up there I do long term stuff on. I got the front bumper done today, now I'm working on a pulley that's making noise and a new trackbar. Should be leaving for my buddy's exhaust shop tomorrow and I need to go over into Ohio and pick up a factory MJ rollbar I bought off a guy. I just don't have time to build a cage since were leaving next Thursday.

    3 day's left and I still need to finish up the half doors and plumb my air box in. If I have time I'm gonna put some factory skids on. Been working on the car trailer and truck for a couple day's to make sure there ready.

    Well I've had some victory and some stuff I couldn't get done, but I'm leaving for Harlan in the morning so it's done for now. I didn't get the half doors done but there close, and I didn't get a winch because a set of Q buckshots popped up for sell that I wanted worse and couldn't afford both. I'll post pics when I get back here's some pics of shake down yard wheeling..








    Here's a pic of me and my buddy's xj he also built in a month for Harlan, we should have just took are regular trail rigs but were not exactly considered sane...

    The MJ did great at Harlan, I wasn't sure in the beginning but I ended up loving the 112in wheelbase. I didn't brake anything so that was a plus but I did have a fuel delivery gremlin that kept popping up every now and then.

    He's just not an internet kind of guy He exploded an 8.25 on Friday but we got the welder out that night and put enough rod in there to keep it together Saturday. I just noticed your from Dover, my brother retired from there and I live (magnolia) and worked (Sunroc, at the end of the runway) for years.
