XJ Heep 3.0
« on: August 16, 2016, 11:23:43 AM »
My third cheap XJ acquired last night.

Ran like shit. Ignition tune up, runs perfect now. Still need a good battery and driver seat mounting rebuilt. The seat is all over the place.  :o

I'll like to build it to similar to my first XJ. Long arms lift kit, fab HD bumpers, rocker panels replaced with square tubing as rock sliders, 33x12.5 mudders and then some.

 I'll focus on get it's mechanically to 100% then mods will start.

My XJ Heep 1.0 had the IRO long arms without that thing. I'll see how it works.

This is the IRO thingy, rather controversial on the interwebs
