I just sold my YJ Friday and bought this 93 XJ

33" BFG AT s
Bilsten Reservior shocks on all 4 corners
Rusty's Transfer Case and Engine guard
Unibody sliders
Unibody stiffener
Slip Yoke eliminator
New Drive shafts
5 Hella Driving Lights
Winch (not sure on the brand or power)
Roof rack
ARB Lockers front and rear with compressor installed
CB w/antenna
Minor engine mods
3 BFG AT 32-11.5-15s with 23/64" of tread
Waren lockouts in the front with chromoly axles
Rollbar
Don't remember how much lift







I need to sell 2 of the BFGs to fund a new wheel for the spare.

I love this thing and it gets better MPG than my YJ and has most of everything I need for the local trails. Cool

How much for the tires? I'd pay to have them shipped.

Nice ride!

It looks like youve got about a 5 lift from the photos although with 33s it may be 6.

Are those Bushwacker flares? I really like em and a set would work just fine for some additional trimming.

Sorry the tires sold yesterday afternoon locally.

I know this is going to sound steep, but everything in South Dakota is over priced. Razz $5000, but considering the amount of money that was put into it... it was well worth it. Wink

After reading the list of extras, like ARBs, I don't think $5000 is steep at all.

Nope! Not kidding at all! Bushwacker makes a couple different styles of flares, Im thinking about trimming my fenders beyond that the of the factory flares and I happen to like the ones he has.

Rockjock is correct. Bushwacker sells more than just the Cut-out flares. This is a picture from Bushwacker's site of their extend-a-flares. That being said, when comparing the two pictures, it looks like TheRoOsTer's flares are stock.

Thanks for the pic DavidXJ I've seen the flares as parts on web links and catalogs but not on an XJ. It's kind of difficult to get an Idea what they really look like on the vehicle without it. I don't really remember what the 93 stock flares looked like, your probably right.

I have a book full of reciepts for all the suspension and engine items. It's more than what I paid for the XJ as it sits. Razz

No Doubt RoOsTer, I'm in the middle of putting over $1800 into my suspension and tires, most of which is just maintenance. That front winch bumper with the winch and the rear with the swing out rack has got to be another $1700 or so. That almost adds up to your investment right there.

I'm amazed at how clean the body is of dings rust and scratches. Did the previous owner ever let it out to play in the dirt?

I'm the 3rd owner and the guy who built it did all the work for looks and something to blab about. The local Jeep club said he wouldn't trail ride it. They call it the Mall Cruiser because thats all he ever did. The 2nd own used it for Hunting a lot this past year. Nothing major as far as trails go.
