My 95 Zj Build

Well here goes nothin!!

How's it goin everybody. Been a Jeep fan for a while now. Can't get enough of them(you'll see why). When I was in high school my parents bought me a 05 Jeep Liberty 4X4 Limited, it was a great starter Jeep. Never did anything crazy to it, just a 2" lift, bigger tires, lights on the roof, and a sound system. Loved it to death! Had that for about 4 1/2 years and decided to part with it.

Pictures of the Liberty (can't find any pictures of it when it was stock)



A couple years after I sold the liberty, I decided to get back into Jeeps again! In August 2010 I bought my first Wrangler. It was a 2001 TJ Sport. Only had a 2" spacer lift and 15X10 rims. Of course that didn't sit well with me, so I had to mess with it!

Back when I bought it Aug 2010

Before


After


Then I had the opportunity to upgrade to a Lj. So why not, sold the TJ and bought the LJ! The TJ was purchased from a guy in New York, so he had a truck pick it up.

Bye bye TJ




I also bought the LJ from out of state, Oklahoma. And had it shipped down as well. It already had a 6" Rough Country lift, 35" Pitbull Rockers, SYE, a old currie winch bumper, a old warn winch, and a bumper/tire carrier.



And of course it wast gonna stop there. I put 4.56 gears, lockers, diff covers, new bumper, new winch, the list goes on.



Then........ I decided to get a Jku. So I sold the LJ and bought a 08 Jku Rubicon.

Before



After



I loved the JKU like crazy! Couldn't of been happier! But unfortunately I had to let it go, it wasn't what I wanted to do, but I had to... My job wasn't working out too good, ended up doing what I had to do and sell it. Paid my wife's car off, bills, etc. Ended up only having the mortgage to pay which is sweet. But a couple months later things turned around at my work and starting making money again! If I could've just held on to that JKU for a couple more months.... Damn!

So I came across a older guy that had a 04 Lj that he wanted to trade me for my truck. Only had 44,000 miles on it and it was bone stock. Long story short. Traded the guy, fixed it up, a buddy of mine gave me a offer I couldn't refuse, sold it.

Before


After


And I'm at it all over again. Except I'm goin a different route. Picked up a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4X4 with a 5.2 V8. Has a 176,000 miles on it. I paid $3,000 for it. The guy had just put a 4inch Rough Country Lift, 33X12.50 Tires, and Cragar wheels, doesn't have no leaks, new rebuilt tranny, brand new compressor, and a/c blows insanely cold. Only needs a few little things, which I will post as I replace things.

Well, here it is!

That's a good looking set of Jeeps you've had. Just a little biased towards the last one though lol. How'd you like the rockers? Thinking that's gonna be my next set of tires but I've never seen anyone around here with them

The rockers were awesome, they weren't that noisy on the road, and offroad the traction was great! Kinda expensive but definitely worth it. I'm not doing nothin big on this Jeep. It's gonna be a trail rig, just mainly freshen it up a bit, throw a rack on top, and lockers. I just installed some JKS Disconnects on the other day, new headlights, parking lights, turn signals, and painted the rear vents with bed liner.
