She's back w/ better flex than eva!

I got the ZJ back today. While they were putting the engine in, they said that the alternator needed rebuilding (?) the radiator was full of mud and water mixed together, replaced a motor mount (smoother now) and replaced the waste gas tube that goes from the valve cover to the intake box and he put the IAT sensor where it belongs (that will change). oh and K&N is in now. I drove it to the ramp today and I accidentally left the bottom of the left front shock disconnected (stupid me!!! couldnt tell much of a diff though because the shocks was on its mounts the whole time.) and I took it to the ramp and it is sweet cant wait for the arms, spacers and tires. Look at the before and after picture. and the mud tires are bigger of course.

Nice flex, make sure to extend your bumpstops prior to increasing the size of the mudders so you don't rearrange the fenderwells.

that would be the best ever. I got all 4 of my Rockkrawler 4" long travels put on. It flexes out like no other for stock arms. The rear actually starts to steer. You guys with the lifted grand probobly know what I'm talking about. It get's almost even with where the body stops in the rear. The front does. I cant wait until I get rusty's adj. control arms. I need new brake lines though. Mine are about to snap. no more flexing for me!
