Default XJ: Yumpets ELMO

hey all, figured i might aswell put my build up on here so i know when im doing something wrong hehe, got a rustys offroad kit with a TNT long arm kit, thanks too Mr Wooders (sorry for all the phone calls when ya had your baby ) been a great help so far, i can't wait for the rest of the bits too turn up so i can make a full start but here it goes.

Started with a 97 XJ classic back in 04 got the mod bug straight away, got a OME 2" lift then 1" spacer in the front and 2" blocks in the rear, rear tyre carrier, 31" tyres but it wasn't enough, so i ordered the lift kit and parted with my hard earned $$$$ now the fun begins!!!!

Oh no, I've got the same model and been bitten by the same mod bug. I've just done the 2" OME lift. Does that mean I'll be doing the full lift kit next?

looks good, looking forward to seeing it fitted,

Looking good there.
How are the Eldorado Tyres holding up too? Would you get them again and how it the noise, handling on roads like and the gravel performance as well? Did you have the ZR4's I think?

So you got the frame stiffeners from Wooders as well, must be the first set off of him Interested to see how much difference they make, I was kinda tempted when I was over at his place and saw them.

Cheers
Steve

Good luck, I hope it all goes smoothly. Are you going to install a SYE, or doing something else i.e. transfer drop?

installing a SYE and longer drive shaft, don't think a trans drop would accomadate my lift and it might mess with the LA too i reckon

Looks like the lift and mods will make your XJ into an awesome offroader.

I notice you live in Mt Isa - how much will the engineering certificate and QLD Dept of Transport inspection cost you? Or is this XJ going to be a trailer queen?
