Almost anywhere you have to do body work on the Xj is crazy thin. I usually take what ever I'm fabbing (IE; quarter panel) across from another Xj and cut a 2" strip following the same bodyline to back it to help.

Nice work!!

Well didn't spend to much time on the jeep past couple weeks. I have been sent to FORD training doing advanced engine diagnosis and then doing Transmissions class with them. Only 2 certs away from being senior master

But anyhow picked up these seats from a junkyard for $48 out of a 06 WRX(Didn't take the picture of the seats so here is the stock photo haha)

Also had the wife do my rear diff service and re-painted. She wants to learn everything about JEEPING so best way to learn is to do it!

Will post more when i get back to it hopefully this weekend.

on the red one had to get a 93 xj washer fluid bottle hooked up since he eliminated the 99 fender bottle. And then the middle white one he was finishing his hood shocks that we make for all our XJ. Then the white one with tailgate he was redoing his headliner. Was a productive day lol

So started to do my frame stiffeners tonight, got one side done tonight. Using the JCR mid frame stiffeners. Very simple to install and jcr has all the holes that need to be in correctly positioned. Very good quality from them. Will start on the passenger side hopefully later this week. Was one of my few free nights to work on jeep. But here is the pictures. Ignore the kind of crappy pics and ignore the rust on my floor pan. That will be the next project when I swap the WRX seats into my jeep.

I stiffened my frame too. I think it is a must for serious off roading
