Nice rig.

Do you have any pictures and info about the rollcage set-up?

I dig the way the the exo is set-up with the internal bracing.

I always like a boattailed rig.

How about some more details about the rest of the rig.

Its dovetailed. It it was bob'd the back would be cut off making it shorter. If it was boatsided the sides between the wheels would taper like a boat.

Maybe it's "canoed" they taper in the back, now he just needs to tapper the front to match....

I prefer shavedpussy thou

BEEEEP!

Wrong answer.

Dovetailing includes narrowing the rear section.
He did Bob the end...
Damn it boyz! Do I need to teach you everything...
I'm kinda' partial to the shave myself!

Its dove tailed.
not bobed
not boatsided
not backhalved
not frenched
not boattailed, that would require more fab work, and an outboard motor
Now if it was a bobed back-halved and dove-tail, now were talkin.

I like the front fender bars under the fenders.
I would add some tube at the top of the rear fenders, youll hit them alot.
Id moove the gas tank up through the floor and get that hitch gone or make something higher.

ashman I thought you said you would never post tech in the XJ forum because ti wasnt worthy

I like that rig, what front coils are you running? They look tightly wound (looks like a stiff ride).

dovetail looks nice

You must be too damn young to remember what we use to do to customize cars.
Its not Dove Tailed. That requires narrowing the rear panels.
It is Bob'd. That means it has been shortened...from the rear.
So there!!

Did you read what he did he narrowed the rear 4" which would be dovetailed. I'ts no shorter then a normal XJ. The only thing that made is shorter was angling the rear quarters in. The shackle boxes are unchanged.

So how is it bob'd...

I did notice.....after I crapped on you....that the shackle's were in the same location...but....He still is shorter than stock...does that count?



I can't tell by any pictures that is has been narrowed either...it does look shorter though...

Wait..I see now...it is a bit narrower...

Damn it!!
I hate it when I am ...um....well....WRONG!

Sorry....

Okay...

It's moved aprox 4 to 5 inches per side at the light area, starting afther the rear doors.



the original lights are gone and the new light area is aprox 2 inches shorther.

randon pics of the interior rollbar.


I may add the tube over the rear fenders on a later date, for now it will be tested at Tellico (the Cherokee crawl) and changes made lather.
