    Jeep Build

    Since the thread was lost, I will start it over. I have a 1987 xj. Bought it bone stock, not running. Found out it had wiring issues, So I bought another xj for the harness. Got it running and started the mods. First came the 31's. Bought them used from a guy at work. Then I did a little over 3 inches of lift with rusty control arms and some lift blocks. recently the lift blocks broke so I got some 3.5" add a leafs and installed them. I have a throttle body spacer waiting to be installed. Ill keep updating as I do things

    Thanks. This weekend I am hoping to replace the water pump and thermostat to address some cooling issues I have on the trail.

    Put in the new water pump and thermostat. Wired my electric fan back in. We will see how she drives on pavement.

    Back to work!!!! I trimmed fenders and put 33's on since my 31's no longer worked out. Toysukijon(I think) fabbed me up a CB antenna mount that I will post pics of later. Jeeps looking great. Next is more lift to help with flexing and rubbing.

    Today I tossed on some 1.5" wheel spacers and put on a throttle body spacer. Too soon to tell a difference though. I will let you know.

    Sorry. Tried to upload them through the tapatalk app. Won't do that again. I will sit down at my computer later this afternoon and upload them properly.
