saw a rare and beautiful sight today... All my dash lights were at full power! I pulled out my phone to take a picture and they went back to their normal, dim levels.

Maybe with the muffler because there's two exhaust set ups for zjs. One has center inlet with offset outlet and one with offset inlet and center outlet depending on if it was put together in Australia or America.

And that is why I don't let anybody else drive my zj.

My idea of modification is usually if you don't like it, tear it off.

How messed up is that ARB?

Ontopic: May be trading my XJ for a Niner, and finally be back in a ZJ once again.

Had the muffler cut out that was welded in backwards and replaced with a single chamber flow with dumps. Sounds mean and picked up some throttle response to boot.

Got my busted power steering box out and quickly realized it wasn't worth the effort/was borderline impossible to reuse the old pulley. So now I have a new one on order and the ZJ is out of service until it gets here -frustration-.

Got 8 qts of ATF +4 and a new filter and gasket for the trans. Got four containers of 75w 90 for both diffs. And the guy at advanced told me 70w90 or 75w 90 for the d35 so I got 75 w 90 for that. If I feel like it when I get off work tonight I will start on that stuff

You are going to want/need adjustable front trackbar too. It comes with the benchmark kit and I also added adjustable rear trackbar to my lift.

Sounds good though dads hookin you up.
