Default Cloudswimmer's 1:1 96 Jeep XJ

Well I'm sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting on my ESC to show up so I can get my new Bully II up and running, so I figure I'd share my 1:1 project. Bought this XJ new in 96' and have been slowly building it up over the years. Its geared with 4:56's, and running Detroit lockers front and rear.

Washed and waxed to protect it from rat dung sitting in the garage lol

My custom steering setup I designed and built

My friend Billy welding my axle truss for me IN THE RAIN lol

I designed and built this ladder bar to help keep wheel wrap at a minimum

My custom rear bumper, and you can see my relocated shock brackets and hillbilly truss lol

Power Tank location

Took all that junk off the roof .. wasted weight, and up high no good for rock crawling .. and its not like I'm going to do a Sahara expedition or anything lol

Photoshopped the fenders off to see what it would look like, and plan on doing it to get back some articulation, anybody in So.Call. good with a sawzall?

Nice! I just bought myself a pretty clean 98. All it really has done to it is a RE 3.5" lift and some 31s, but that will change here shortly.
