Awesome! Have you been periodically spraying everything with PB-Blaster for a while? Stuck bolts can turn a one-day job into a two day nightmare.
Wish I lived closer, I'd lend a hand.

Today did my front breaks and ditched the rest of my air box. Was going to fab up a heat shield and better hold down. But the wife had other plans for me. So for now a tie wrap will hold it still.

Nice job so far, swunk!

I miss my old XJ. I guess I will just have to live vicariously through you until I pick up another. :lol:

Don't know if you know about this site or not but I figured I would send it your way just in case...and lots of info for XJ owners...http://www.cherokeeforum.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

And for good measure, lets not forget...http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Got back a wile ago from pulling my buddy out of the mud. Some people just don't listen, when I say your pos stock explorer isn't going to make it through that mud hole. Trust me its not going to make it. What's he do as soon as I leave he romps through it and gets his ass stuck.
Fucking ripped off one of my rear recovery points getting his ass out too. :roll: :evil:

O well I had fun.

I love friends who offroad and don't know how, then expect you to bail them out at 2 o'clock in the morning, from a spot dangerously close to where police patrol, because they aren't supposed to be offroading there in the first place.

Oddly enough, it was my explorer that pulled his Jeep Wrangler out. (I switched to a wrangler eventually though.)

well if he didn't have his kids with him I probably would have left his ass in the mud.
Even more pissed now, just realized I lost my S.O.G multi tool when I was hooking him up. :evil:
