99 XJ
D-Day about 2.5 years ago.

A couple months later I replaced the tie rod and ends with a factory replacement which was later learned to be a mistake.

Fast forward to last year I got a 1.75" budget boost for the front and a set of 30x9.50s and this past winter tested it out at the chili bowl.

Leaking heater core caused obnoxious windshield fogging the entire time. Had a lot of problems with ground clearance and traction just a few yards off the main trail. As Keith likes to break my balls about.

Next came the heater core expedition lead by Dan.

Started the gathering of parts.
