Cloudswimmer's 1:1 96 Jeep XJ

Well I’m sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting on my ESC to show up so I can get my new Bully II up and running, so I figure I’d share my 1:1 project. Bought this XJ new in 96′ and have been slowly building it up over the years. Its geared with 4:56’s, and running Detroit lockers front and rear.

Washed and waxed to protect it from rat dung sitting in the garage lol
