Looks great! That bumper really flows with your ZJ. Is a blue lens on your fog-light broken, or is there a reason one is blue and one is white?

Ah, I gotcha. I didn't know if the blue/clear light combo helped you see better due to the light spectrum or something crazy like that, haha.

You have adjustable arms, ditch the transfer case drop.
Track bar angle looks terrible compared to the drag link.
Bet it bump steers like crazy.

Just added a new magnaflow exhaust, it came out perfect not to loud but you can still hear it and it sounds much cleaner. around christmas time i will be adding currie steering bilstien shocks a roofrack and possibly a snorkel.

You should throw some of those old springs my way! :P

And you should defiantly hit the obstacle course up in the Azusa canyon ohv park.. Fun as help especially when you got the right set up.
