  • where are all the ZJs?

    Show me some pics, and tell me what you got underneath. I have a plan for building one, but I'm curious.

    I have a 96 ZJ, 4.0 with a 242 case. stock wheels and tires. Only mod on it is a high flow muffler and tail pipe.
    It is my DD and wont see any wheeling anytime soon. That is what the XJ is for.
    Only other thing to be done is New BFG's AT's and new shocks, plus a air intake. But other then that. It will be running the highways.

        That's what I need - comfy. Keep the wife and kids happy (read "asleep") on long road trips. But I want to still be able to hit the trails.

        "Comfortable, yet Capable" I guess. The perfect family jeep.

          I have my 93 that i'm working on...

          When i get back from vacation is when the real fun starts, Its going to be a daily driver but I definitely don't worry about comfy too much...

          Plans:
          4" lift
          33" tires
          Gonna have to cut the fenders some
          exhaust, with hi flow cat
          Underbody lights
          Winch bumper and winch
          Paint the lower part of the body with truck bed liner
          And my stereo...gotta have the tunes

          And im sure the list goes on but that is all i can think of right now.

            I don't know - from what I've heard you can't make a Grand Cherokee "un-comfy". They're just built too well.

              My bud has a 94? or 95, I am in the middle of regearing the HP30/8.8 that are going into it. I welded up the Clayton brackets for the unibody side yesterday. After I finish the regearing of the 8.8 and welding the coil buckets, truss, lca mounts and shock mounts we can unbolt his 4" RE and put in his Clayton LA kit with 7" coils. I told him he would be too tall but he will find that out after he rolls it over.

              Just a FYI the front driveshafts are junk on those. He blew his apart (the cv end) I wasn't there when he did it. I was up helping unflop a guy but from what he said he wasn't getting in it hard when it let go.

                Very good Rodney, working hard and trying to get everything ready for the M&G in less then 2 weeks. But what can I say.

                  Thanks for the tip - it's on the upgrade list now. It seems that 6.5"-7.5" is standard for clearing tires over 33" on these (small wheel wells) unless you hack the crap out of them, and that's not the best thing to do to a unibody rig. I've seen a few that tall here and there - if he's careful I don't think he'll have to worry too much. What size tires is he currently running?

                    32s right now but he is going to 35s with 7" of lift = way too tall I don't care what rig you have. The front fenders don't do much atleast from what I see. The rear however you cant trim much before you reach the pinch seem (about where its at now). Not that it matters in a few months. After he gets me tube he is getting an internal and external cage, tied into the unibody stiffeners. The rockers are 4x4 box welded to the pinch seem and 3 support legs running to the "frame" part undernieth it. After I get my pos finished he will get used to flops/rolls

                      I just picked up this '93, for $550. It's gonna be my DD when it's to nasty for the CJ (topless). But I plan on jumpin it up a couple inches, no more than 4''. And running 31 or 32'' tires. No need for more then that, for me any way. But for now I need to get the CJ ready for some events this summer. I've got the Crawl 4 the Cure http://www.crawl4cure.org/ in July and the S.T.E.P. (State Trails Echange Program) in August. Unfortunatly due to low funds and surgery in June, I can't make the M&G this year, I'm so bummed!

                      Anyway, here's my new project.

                        i'm too poor to do anything but i've got a 95 with the 5.2 and a flowmaster muffler. other than that it's got a kicka$$ stereo system (courtesy of the best buy employee discount ) i would love to lift it and throw some bigger tires on there. that's my plan once i get the money.
