Hello

Well how do JXK friends

We have had our 2010 black limited 4x4 just over two years now. We got it out of Ohio and it had come from Ottawa and seem to be the snow truck with 21000 miles on it. In very good condition (the only way my wife will have anything). Now the truck has 43000 miles on it and for the most part I am the soccer dad with it, but I am a Mopar man and it has Gibson SS exhaust, K&N no box intake and I put in DVD head rest for the boys. For the most part we love the truck I just wish it had a bigger gas tank but what ever. I had sold my CSRT last year that I had done a lot of modification on and loved do it about 360HP four banger can be big fun.

So now starting on the 4X4 but keeping it a DD, I would like to do a small lift 2" maybe 3" shocks and struts so I can do a wider AT tire. I have started backing off the chrome just a bit to much for me. But we will see how it ends up.

Once again hi XJ's from Ocean Springs Mississippi

Thank you Big Blue for the welcome and the web sites I will look in to them. I really like the 2.5" JBA Adjust-A-Strut coilover lift kit.

That's a good choice, JBA/4xGuard make quality products.

I have 4xGuard's 10 bolt rear differential cover and JBA's Upper Control Arms for lifted XKs (Part # JBA-6.7.00-SLB).

I'm also getting ready to order 4xGuard's rock rails to get rid of the factory plastic ones.
