You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

@zte looks great! Reminds me of ZJones' rig.

Put new side bearings in the front diff carrier. Got lucky with the setup (didn't change anything) as it doesn't make too much noise.

There's a noise but it sounds like the tcase.

Put $84 in gas in. Took two transactions. Let's say I was easy on the throttle on the way home...

If your talking about drive shaft noise yes, I have drive shaft with u-joints. Its noise only on decel, it because of pinon angle. Taking it to get alignment tomorrow we should fix the noise then. I will let you know how it goes.

if thats the kit that uses the factory front uppers and adjustable lowers then your front pinion angle is way off. you need to shrten your lowers considerably. you can see the axle is too forward in pic 6

i did the junk yard luggage rack light bar mod. it looks good. im adding the fog lights next weekend. all in all ill have less than $100 in all six lights plus wiring and connectors. i tried to do a cool mod on my light switch where it would have 2 turn knobs, the left one factory, the right one added. the right ones first click controls the fog lights, the second click controls the roof lights. it works, but it doesnt look too good. i might pick up 2 more switches and see what i can make work. theyre only $6 each at pull a part.

Yes sir, Didn't get in the alignment shop today. So tomorrow, I'm thinking an about an inch should do it. RC said the measurement they give is just a start, well it's a bad start lol. But I think after we align it tomorrow and adjust the lower it should be good.

This weekend I hauled an 18ft enclosed trailer with a ton (literally) of stuff in it with my jeep. The chick I talked to to rent the trailer doubted that the jeep could do that...... She said "That's what you are pulling this with?" I laughed. To say the least, the ZJ handled that beast with no problems!
