"Ricky May"

Post by 4x4troy on 11/1/2012, 3:21 pm

i just picked up a 1996 xj country. i am going all out on this one. the woman i got it from her son got killed in a motorcycle wreck. she kept it in her back yard for 5 years. she decided to let it go and i was the lucky one to get it. she told me what her son wanted and thats how i will build it. it has even been given her sons name by her request...."Ricky".

the day i got it....



as it sits now....lots more to come...now has 36" dick cepek mud countrys on 15x12 eagle alloy wheels....

um... did the SUV run and operate fine when you purchased it? Why not just drive it daily?

OK, got it. I normally would not tear into an otherwise clean looking SUV.

So what are the planes? Wagoneer axles?

yes it will get better axles...don't know which yet. it has a d30 front an 8.25 rear. i will be going long arm on it to get the short arms off and getting bigger springs f/r to get rid of the spacers and shackle lift.getting a full rhinoline job and will be black/white and some camo in there somewhere.

at least it doesn't have the D35 time bomb. I'd get the waggys with cromos and be done with it. Plenty capable.

I'm going to be out your way late afternoon/ evening. I can stop by.

80-91 Waggy front's are driver drop . There good for what they are. However if abused too much the housing will bend.
