I know it's not a xj but it is gonna be my next project. It's a 93 sidekick and I got it running and out playing today. It flexes pretty good and I did add a emblem to the front grill so you guy's wouldn't get mad and call me a traitor. 2in spacers and a 3 in body lift is gonna get me started then I'm gonna put the 32 discoverers on it. It's gonna be a cheap build but something I can tow behind the xj.

Here's a Geo(basiclly the same) I've seen wheel and it's a good one for getting the brain moving.

Details:
2.7L 190hp aluminum v6 (50lbs heavier than the old 4), 4 speed auto with lockup, dual cases now with a dana 300 (front dig), what should be a very neutral 4 link, sway a way air shocks, bump stops from a 1/2 ton chevy P/U, 102" wheelbase, a bigger fuel cell mounted in the tub, full autometer gauges, true to their size 37" sticky Trepadors, roll cage with the front half exo so i dont wreck the tub since it doesnt have replaceable pieces like a jeep or sami.

Yep, I still feel bad about the whole JP fab thing. I know the guys and thought they were better people than they turned out to be..

I knew Neil from about 2 years before they started JP Fab. Last I heard nothing. I know they tried to sell on other sites but the guys from JCR just kept on there heals. I did hear they were tring to start another company but don't know how much truth there is to that. I think they meant well at first but got in way over there heads and than got greedy. Some of there work was top notch, but the stuff they sold out side there club was just plan crap.. They are how ever good people to wheel with just not do business with.

the site is www.greatlakes4X4.com Good info but the guys on there are worse than the ones on Pirate4x4. This is the only pic of the 4 door I could find right now..

I read a article on this rig in a mag the other day. I won't go as wild as this but the plans are toyota axles eventually. Just not sure if I should go leafs or coils. Coils are cooler, but I wouldn't mind having leafs just like a little sammy.
