OK, I bought an 89 XJ not too long ago and is going to be my next project. And trying to build it to a serious trail beast for under $5,000. Here is what I have so far. . .

At $1,300
I got the XJ in this condition
Rebuilt 4.0, Transmission, and T-Case
6.5" Rusty's Suspension lift
33" MT Baja AT
Tom Woods custom drive shafts w/ SYE
Front sway bar disconnects
D35 Front w/ Posi Lock Cable
Ford 8.8 Rear
4.10 Gears
Winch ready bumper.

Spent a few bucks and added
At $3,600 (Total so far)
Skid plates Engine, Transmission, T-case, Gastank, Quarter panels
Bush Wacker fender flares
Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier
34" Truxus LTB on Crager Soft 8's ( my dad ordered swampers for his TJ and the company messed up and sent these lol which = me getting them free)

And Hopefully at under the $5,000 limit I can add
Rear locker
Winch
Aux lights.

So i am well on my way to building a heck of a Beast I just need to figure out what the name of the project should be. . . The theme is Cheap, Bargain, Budget but yet still be one heck of a beast. . . So please Vote and or give some suggestions on the name of this fun project. . .

if your going to add a winch and a rear locker Id go with the Smittybuilt XRC8 and an Aussie locker, the winch is $300 and the locker should cost about $250.
