Have you articulated it to check for clearance on your coils? It looks really close, like you will end up with a coil hitting your lower tubing. That is a hell of an undertaking. I think you'll be understanding why XJ's are not more popular for buggy builds. It'll be badazz when its done though!

Tube work looks real clean. Stretch the front out some and it would set the look off even more. I dig it.

Also got wheels with a greater offset than the stock ones so I have a wider stance and I can already tell the back does not move as much now
