Hey guys, just wanted to give you a quick peek into my garage.

This is my stock 2008 XK, love this Jeep:






Added the OEM tow hitch and 7 pin wiring:

(pic lost)




Installed OEM fog lights and stalk:

(pic lost)




My XK baring it all in order to install the stud plates to hold the 4xGuard Matrix, my XK did not have tow hooks:






Finally mounted my 4xGuard Matrix with black bow shackles (you can't really see them in this pic though):

Attempting to install RC 2" lift kit... FAIL! Tried all sorts of hammers including one that is not picture and still the lower strut bolt didn't budge:





Commander after 2" lift install. There's a Commander at work that always parks close to mine, maybe after he sees the difference he won't park as close anymore lol:

My XK (pre-lift) towing a 6x12 trailer with about a total of 2,500 pounds of weight. Pulled that sucker without a problem; V6, mind you.

Thanks 8ball. I see quite a few around here too and I've only seen one that was lifted around the Joliet/Bolingbrook area, it was one the same color as yours, was it you? lol It looked like an asian guy driving it. All the other XKs I've seen are not mod-ed with the exception of 1, he dropped it and added bigger wheels with smaller tires, not really my cup of tea.
