BizarroZJ Build thread
Hi there, my name is Matt and I am new to the Jeep world, I am a Junior studying Mechanical Engineering. I have definatly been bittin by the Jeep bug :)

1997 ZJ Limited
5.2L V8
373 Gears
Up Country Suspension

Purchased with 140,000 miles like this:

Someone will have to noclick that for me plz, gettin close to bein able to post my own pics :)

What I am building it for:

The Jeep will spend 70% of its time on the road so extreme lifts and crazy articulation are not what I am after. I am coming from autocrossing small 2 door cars so on road handling is a major factor to me, but not to worry I will NOT be lowering it lol, however thats why the ~2" lift is all I am at for the moment.

I want to build it more for hauling *** over semi rough terrain more so than rockcrawling..... prerunner I think is the name for the style I am after :)

So far:

3/4" lift blocks (+ 1" from upcountry for a total of 1.75" Lift)
Bilstein 5150 Shocks
Addco rear swaybar
Skyjacker Hydro7000 Steering Stabilizer
Iron Rock Offroad 3" Catback
30" BFG AT's

Coming Soon:
KOR Steering Brace
Fix Body damage on drivers rear flare

Up to date pics will be coming as soon as it STOPS SNOWING!!!

ANYONE that is wondering how to improve their handling for $150.00 GET that sway bar! That thing improved things so much its absolutely insane, the shocks helped a lot too.

Nice JEEP, I just bought a black 97 that I am starting to modify. So far I only had the money for a 242 t/c swap, Prothane motor mounts, & changed all the fluids and put in synthetics. Keep us posted on the upgrades you make.:2thumbsup:
