    Default Mean Green Machine

    I'm starting this post to chronicle my progression.



    Here's my start point. I can't wait to look back at this and see what she's become.

    Currently mostly stock. The only thing I know for now is that the head has been replace so I don't have to worry about the 0331. I've got the 7120. (Just need exhaust adapter)

    Looking forward to the people I meet on the journey!

    That is a pretty nice and clean looking XJ to start any kind of build off of.. or even just to drive daily as is... Look forward to seeing it as she progresses to whatever it is you want of her!! Always fun to be able to look back and see all the progression and changes!!

    Clean XJ. I live in Kemah and have driven by Select Jeeps lot many times and have never seen a XJ there. I hope you did not get raped there jeeps seem to be a bit over priced to me. Don't get me wrong they sell some really nice jeeps and have never heard any complaints about them.

    Awesome I've been trying to find some ppl in my area.

    Didn't get raped to bad but yeah it was the only one on the lot. I'd been looking for a month to find one that didn't need real major work right off the bat. Glad they had it.

    I agree, very nice and clean. It always helps to start with one that is all there and looks good

    Right now get her purring nice, keeping her cool, and adding some power. Down the road 2 or 4", bigger tires, all that. It's still a rough draft. I'm not sure. once I get more and more into it I'll figure out what I want her to do.

    There's always more to to do! Get a bigger lift than what you want so when it settles you end up with what you wanted originally.

    Nothing feels better that taking a hot gojo shower after being shoulder deep in my girl.

    Had a great weekend searching pull-a-parts for odds and ends.

    After that spent the days tuning her up. New spark plugs, coil pack, alternator, oil pump, oil pickup, and oil pan gasket. Also nice tall glass of beer for me and 6 quarts of oil for the lady.

    She's running like a dream!

    Now to wait for next weekends adventure

    Thanks. Just have to buff out the dirt built up from where the badges used to be. Instilling a cowl intake tomorrow.
