Now now girls. I think maybe you got a little offended for no reason. he's not the only one to notice and going to point out that it isn't a 3.5 on 32s. I thought the same thing he just beat me to the post. And IF. You were told that it was such specs when you bought it you clearly didn't inspect the vehicle. I'm new to offroading myself so we all make mistakes. Getting called out is how we learn. You should be more upset with the dbag who lied when they sold you the zj.

OT: she's finally running relatively well...for some reason when I'm in drive idling I get a weird shake like its misfiring but put it back in park or neutral it goes away. Hmmm. Waiting for my check to come through so I can order new powersteering pump

I have a dilemma guys. Lift showed up today. I have Saturday off because I wanted to go deer hunting since its opening day of shotgun season. But I kinda want to get my lift on. Should I do the lift or go hunting?

I think you're just offended for nothing. I'm not the one who sold you a stock ZJ saying it was lifted with 32s, so you're mad at the wrong person. Whether you're new to offroading or not, it doesn't take half a brain to check your tire size before posting all about it online.

That being said, good luck buddy.

Nick, congrats on the lift! I'm going to try and do a 3.5 next year. Have fun putting it on!

Will do guys. Gonna get a late start tomorrow cause my boss is taking us all out to eat since harvest is over. But it will be a late night that's for sure. The dt8000 shocks holy s*** if they are half as nice as all 4 of them weigh ill be okay. I took everything out if the box before I went to work and damn that box was still heavy.

Received a intake manifold today, just something I want to play around with and modify.
Stinky oily fluid was seeping out of the box that it came it and you could it from 40 feet away.
I bet the UPS person love this in their truck.



Pulled the belly pan, bet the jeep it came out of was not running very good.



Started cleaning it up.



Looking much better, but still have some more cleaning to do.
