Jumphiggggg's 5.2L ZJ Limited Build
 
Hey fellow ZJ and Jeep enthusiasts!

So i've had my ZJ a grand total of a week now and my buddy Andrew :highfive:, (Myusername1674) has been bugging me to start a build thread so here it is.

Small backstory:
Last year I bought my first car which was a 2000 Acura Integra LS. That car was my baby and I absolutely loved it to death. In march, I got rear ended and as a result, totalled the Integra.

After this, the insurance money came in and I was left with a generous amount to work with. Being in a band that needed a car with more space, I decided that it would be a good idea to look at grand cherokees since my buddy andrew had one. After 4 weeks of hunting on craigslist I came across my ZJ. We drove up to knoxville to pick it up and I have loved it ever since.

Completely bone stock.

As of tuesday, I have a Fat Bob's BB ordered, Kevins Off Road front tow points, summit racing D ring wheels, Hancook Dynapro M/T 31x10.5R15 tires, Smoked headlights, smoked turn signals, smoked tail lights, and smoked LED 3rd brake light. Pics of the install on all these will be up soon! :D
So for now, here is some pictures!
(Black jeep is Myusername1674's, Andrew's)

Hey you made the thread! Sweet! Oh btw your rims showed up in my garage man! Can't wait to get the other parts in!

GCjunkie93 04-18-2013 11:53 PM

I wish I had a buddy to build Jeeps with :pout:

The fat bob kits are ok if you get good shocks and stay away from their 3" bb. Nobody else sells a 3" bb because nobody else is willing to sell something that dangerous.

Congrats on the zj, great color :teehee:

You'll love the kor radiator support and the d windows. Get busy breaking ****, and take pictures!

Thanks everyone!
Well I have an update for your guys. So parts were all ordered last week's tuesday, so by this past tuesday all of the parts came in. Since then, the jeep has blacked out headlights, blacked taillights, blacked turn signals, smoked LED third taillight, 2"BB, Hankook Dynapro M/T 31x10.5, Summit Racing D-Ring steelies, and KOR tow points! :D
Me and myusername1674 finished up the the BB and installing the tires at 3:08 A.M. this morning and no death wobble. :2thumbsup:
I'll post some pictures as soon as I can!
