Default 2slw4u's Build up

I thought I should share my little build lol.
So I was given my XJ from my dad becasue I sold my rx7 and didnt have a car lol. But i was given the XJ in 2007 and had about 170-180k miles on it. At first I hated the thing thought it was stupid because I was one of the "ricers" lol. But began to love it so much as soon as i had to drive in the first snow storm!
here is a pic of what it looked like when i got it(i added the fogs)
here was my rx7

sold it then went to this

My friends in welding class decided to make me a cheap bumper for a small project(not the best looking but its freaking strong lol



I then kept reading and found that people in xjs sometimes have problems with overheating so i took the idea from Mudd and installed hood vents.

I also have 32x11.50R15 GY MT/R w Kevlar tires and love them! I also didnt have any pictures of installing my rear Lockrite locker but I installed that along with a riddler rear diff cover.
