Default Project: Momentum

A couple Weeks ago i picked up a 98 xj it is stock now but i plan to build this for the woods.

Current Specs

98 xj sport
4.0 I6 5 speed (needs Clutch)
hp d30 front 29 spline 8.25 rear 3.07 gear
108k on the clock

Here are the plans......

First New clutch
3.5" lift full coil and leaf packs
33's in either the Km2 or MTZ flavor (depending on funds)
eventually geared and locked.
doorless conversion
and armor







I drove the xj about 3 miles home and even with no clutch i managed to get her a little dirty




so lots of updates on my build.

installed new clutch, flywheel, and slave cylinder in early january.......... i was sourcing parts till last weekend.




Turns out the throw out bearing went, but being all the way in there i replaced the clutch and fly.

I purchased a 3.5 inch rough country kit off the list of craig........ going to pilfer it for coils, shocks and LCA's and with the help of Armand & Dan i acquired a couple extra leafs to build a 3.5 to 4.5 inch bastard pack. Thanks guys!!










Found some used km1's in the 33 flavor for 150$ it was a no brainer.



^^^^^ No Lift
