As close to stock as I have pics of,

On 2.25"BB and 31's


And now, 5.5" lift and 32's





I was much happier with it on 31's and the BB than I am now..

Easier said than done, it has electrical and mechanical issues, plus to get it to this height I had to drill out the track bar mounts. There's also many other things that would not be worth the work to undo. So I'll drive it till I find another than do it right with all the knowledge I've gained... :)

It also fit down trails better before, it's almost to big for the trails I run now...

I've been wheeling since I was 3(not driving) and riding /driving everything with wheels since about 6. So I have more than a few years under my belt. I can go places with open diffs and little lift that most can't. I'm a very technical driver, and I enjoy that. What i did with the ZJ was built it past what i have to wheel in and around me. If I lived in the mountains or desert with rocks, I might be happier with it. But for what I have and where I go it's jut taken all the fun out of wheeling. I like the challenge of knowing it I don't place my tires just right I might not make it. I guess you could say I wheel for the challenge of not making it, more so the I know I can go any were mind set. Plus as I get older it's more about seeing things that most will never get to cause there un-willing to go to the ex-streams to get there.
