    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.

    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...

    Installed new wheels today, Black Rock Type 16 15x8 with 4 inch bs.










    I think when the weather warms up I'm gonna paint the grille black. I also need to install my 4 inch longer stainless braided brake lines and my front and rear diff. skids.

    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.
