This beast is Rubicon-ready!
I’m the 2nd owner of this 1999 XJ. It was a first car for a nice young lady who babied it for its first 190k miles. Then I bought it and personally oversaw the design and installation of every modification below.
I’ve only used high-end parts and everything has been installed by professionals. I’ve got about $35k in this Jeep.
This Jeep goes anywhere
- 5.5” lift and 33” tires to give you great clearance
- Upgraded, high end Dana 44 axles with chromoly shafts
- TruTrac in the front, ARB air lockers in the back
Worried about death wobbles from incomplete or low quality lift jobs?
- This is the top of the line lift installed by 4 Wheel Parts
- Includes steering stabilizers, long arms, and everything else so the lifted car drives smoothly
- Gets up to 90 mph easily – replace the mudders with some all-terrains and this could be a daily driver
33” tires already on it – but do you want to go bigger?
- Already geared for 35s!
- Notch fender cutouts more clearance than other aftermarkets like Bushwacker
