Thread: Steves XJ

  1. #1

    Default Steves XJ

    I lost my build thread in a terrible forum accident a few days ago so decided I'd put up a new condensed version.

    First up I got the XJ in November 2002, joined SJC in Feb 2003 (first meeting of the year) and went from there.

    I'd already done some mods with a simple budget boost lift and 30x9.5 AT's. It got a dual battery setup and false floor not long after this.

    Below is a pic of my first trip offroad.



    It stayed like that for a while and then in 2005 some time it went to 4" of lift, it also had a tyre carrier on it by then and had done a Jambo and the Flinders Ranges



    Next it got some 31's it had also got a home made front bar and snorkel in there somewhere as well as homemade rock sliders.



    Next.......

    Jump forward to 2008 and it got 32" tyres and had a few other mods including a bit more lift, it also had a CarPC at this stage for offroad and street mapping



    Next it was time for some big changes, 2010 prior to Jambo. First up was a D44 with locker, ratios (4.56) and bushwacker flares along with other bits and pieces.

    Shortly after that 35's went on and a homemade roofrack for the roof top tent





    And finally the latest bigish mod has been to build some drawers and hard mount the compressor etc.



    And then......
