I was recommended that tyre size today at the tyre place. He had a different take on the tyre size allowage too and said it was 'up to' 50mm taller or 3% of the tyre placard, whatever is less!

Missing the under rear seat storage of the XJ. Am I right they don't tilt forward at all?

In Vic. Maybe my guy was just pedantic.

It came with a $3000 Freedom Pack which is the bonnet protector, wind deflectors, stainless nudge bar and side steps.
The only thing I will be leaving on is the towbar which was part of the package.


Here it is next to my XJ on the day we picked it up 5 years ago. He has only done 5000km since!

I'm making some small changes so it will be suitable for my camping trips towing the offroad trailer. Most important is some decent recovery hooks.


I had the rated recovery hooks already and want to mount them to the KK. Going to use the brackets from the Mopar 3" stainless nudge bar that was on it.


The heavy wall tubing was cut into saddles and captive nuts welded to the underside. Then welded to the nudge bar bracket plates. The saddles are needed to clear the nuts and leave some room for upwards pulls out of a bog hole etc.


It will bolt back under the front rails and crossmember in this position.


Was hoping I could leave the bumper on but the nut plates inside the rail and crossmember kept moving around while trying to thread the plates bolts back in.


I made a plate off the side of it too to hold the lead for my battery charger that I have permanently mounted inside the engine bay.


Doesn't project out at all so no hurting your shins!


Probably could have been mounted slightly higher with shorter saddles. But only had about 10mm of clearance above the captive nuts.


Neat and unobtrusive. Will give me some where to attach my hand winch via a tree projection strap attached to both hooks at once to spread the load.

Strangely, our RHD version at least, does not come with a dead pedal/footrest. I found it uncomfortable on long trips, so doing something about it.

A bit of CAD work going on here!


Scrap piece of stainless from Dads place.


Ran some beads on the front face of it.


Thought I would try the new dies that came with the bead roller to add some stiffness to the sides.


Turned out alright for some quick work.


Much more comfortable now.

Wow, great work! That foot rest looks like a labour of love, if it weren’t so much work you’d possibly be getting requests.

I have listed the Freedom side steps and window shields on eBay and just wanted to confirm that there are factory holes through the door sill pinch seam? They didn't look like they had been drilled later as most are uniformly oval in shape. 5 each side through that seam.
