Even if the steering wheel is on the other side hey!!

Still a couple of things to do to it, the exhaust isnt far away from a little mod, and Im trying to hunt some 4.10's (or 4.09 or 4.11... whatever) for it too, thems tyres just suck the guts outa 2nd gear.

Yes, 4.10s would be a good improvement.

Awesome looking GC's here so far... I wanted to get a GC originally but everyone in my area wants way too much for their pretty bad shape GC's... Can't wait to see as more are added to this section.

yeah, but on the bright side, once you get that tracking number its like a "Santa tracker", you can see where the goodies are at and the anticipation is awesome... until customs (see: grinch) gets hold of them and want your first born to release the items :stars:

Ya that tends to bring the suck! I always try to put in the shipping notes to please leave on he porch so they (the grinch) doesn't take it away.... lol!

My wife has the WJ, but I don't know if I want an XJ or ZJ to replace the ZJ I sold. I'd like something not quite as clean so I can mod it and take it off road. I'm partial to ZJ's though. I hate leaf springs.

Works perfectly then... you can pick up a decent shape XJ, and grab a nice lift kit from Rock Krawler or TnT that has the rear coil conversion... then you get the awesome rig of an XJ.. and the coils in the rear.. LOL

Made a few changes this past few months. Took off home grown 3 inch lift and put on a Rough Country 4 inch lift. Rides and handles better than when I first got it. Here is a few pics:

Just getting started (cell phone pics sorry about the quality)

When I need new tires I think I will go with either 32x1150 or 33x1050. I haven't decided. I like the 31x1050 that I have on there now,they do great in rain and snow.

bluedragon436

That is a nice looking ZJ you got there Brian... that 4" lift looks good too.. I would probably go with 32's when you replace your current tires... I think 33's might be a bit too big, without quite a bit of trimming...

Instead of painting my chrome grille black I found a new one already black for 45.00. I'm not sure if I like it or not, I think it will grow on me. If not then I might paint it to match the rest of the Jeep or I can put the chrome one back in.

I repainted my already black grille on my green XJ... I like the way it looks personally.. I am also not a fan of Chrome either.. so that just makes it that much easier to stick with my black grille

Painted body color might look cool. But the black for sure looks better than the chrome one.

Wow just noticed I haven't posted anything about my Grand for over 2 years. Really haven't done anything to it, just maintenance. Put new seals in the front axle, had the transfer case rebuilt. Sold my mud terrains and rims in June ,came out pretty good on that deal. [emoji3] Looking for a set of stock 16 inch Grand wheels, planning on running 265/75/16s. They are about 32x1050 so they will tuck into the fenders.

Why'd you decide to sell the MT's?? Going to go with AT for the next set, or just wanted to go back to stock rims?? Glad to hear that the Grand is doing well and still providing joyous service!!
