    Just wanted to know what dose the durango stering box dose for you

  3. Jeepin Jason September 3rd, 2009 8:33 pm

    The Durango steering box gives you a bit more power, and it’s a bit quicker lock to lock.

    So, I gave a 96 XJ, alot of the same stuff. 456 gears, 8″ lift, SYE conversion, MORE mounts, alot more. Question, do you have any or alot of vibration when going down the hwy, say 65-70 mph? If yes I am done. If no, then I am going for a new drive shaft, any ideas? Thanks!

    which header do you recommend for a 2001? I have been looking everywhere for a Borla header for my XJ but they don’t make them for 2001 :(

    In regards to the topic of motor mounts – Brown Dog Offroad offers some spanking replacements, in either rubber or polyurethane, and are reasonably priced. Check em out!

    i was wondering about the door armor i tried to look it up put it just sends me to a web address thats no longer availiable. i would really like to get some armor like that do you know where i can find it thanks for your time.

  13. Jeepin Jason October 1st, 2012 2:09 pm

    Hey Mike, the company that made the door armor has since closed down. The closest product I’m aware of that’s currently available is the Warrior Products Sideplates. Their kit includes panels for the rocker panels and rear lower quarter panels, but it doesn’t wrap as far up the body.

    I am looking at getting a new rear bumper with a tire carrier, and I was wondering if (after your experience and seeing others rear tire carriers) you would buy the C4x4 again or might look at other manufacturers. Do you notice any rattles?

  15. Jeepin Jason November 24th, 2012 8:32 am

    There are a couple of other good options out there for rear bumper systems that weren’t available back when I originally got my C4x4 bumper. That said though I’d absolutely still go with them. Theirs is still IMHO one of the best looking bumpers and the tire carrier is solid, no rattles after over ten years with it.
