Moving back to TX!

I am active Army, been away from TX for the last 7 years. Finally making my way to back home to TX, however not out of the military yet "Fort Hood" is my next duty assignment. I will be frequenting the forums once our move is complete "jun/july" time frame.


I have a rather built '99 XJ


D44 out of F250 Front with 5.13s, chromoly shafts, Reid Racing Knuckles, Eaton E-Locker, and allot of other goodies!
D60 FF out of E-350 Rear with 5.13s, and Spool

Dimension:
Ground to Roof= 73"
Width= 86"
Wheelbase= 116"

Welcome back to texas, thats a nice xj, but that dont look like no 116" wheelbase to me. That would be a 15" stretch.

I cant wait to get back to Texas, and take a trip to Barnwell. I grew up in Longview area and its quick trip to Gilmer.

This really isnt a good comparison, but I was parked at a fairly same angle/spot. I am not trying to prove that my Rig is anything that it is not, but I am fairly confident in my measuring skills haha.
