I also run a BB with 31s. Obviously I want bigger but it is perfectly capable. I run right along with other jeeps n trucks bigger then mine without issue. I've got the cooper discoverer stt and they're amazing. I've literally buried it to the windshield n drive right out no problem. Got some pics for ya.

That's awesome. That jeep just looks totally awesome, clean or dirty. I'm thinking I may make some skids since it will still be low to the ground, compared to others.

Thank you sir! I appreciate it. And it's not even close to being done!

Changed my oil, and continued to chase down electrical problems. I also got my driver door reset and the window switches to work again. Only to close the door and then not have them work again. Always something

I'll see if I can find someone local to trade with before I decide to go and just buy OEM stuff. I have the bracket on the rear axle for the TB, and front TB is IRO's adjustable double shear.

Sucks because I have less than 400 miles on the IRO lift. Debating on just parting with all the offroad goodies(KOR support, Warn D30 diff cover, lift, tires, snorkel, winch plate, skids, Kolak exhaust, and return it to a decent and quiet daily commuter.

You wrapped the 5.9 wood grain!?!?!? That's an offense punishable only by death. You're supposed to sell those, get some crappy pieces from a Laredo or regular Limited and wrap them, as they're not rare and will look just the same once wrapped.

If you're really going to do this let me know, I'm interested in a lot of that stuff and I'm in Houston.
Also I have some of the parts from your first post about the stock parts you need.

Man, I have all this Di-noc left over from my import days. May have to do similar but with black fake carbon fiber. It's exterior stuff, so it's durable as heck too.

MidnightLuckey, I'll PM you when I can get to wrenching. Have to wait and see the verdict on how my broken hand has healed on the 19th.

Well today ends the week of fixes for my 96 ZJ. I got from amazon.com a Monroe steering stabilizer, and man I have to tell you guys it is one of the best fixes I have done.
I feel like I have so much more control over the car. I was surprised. It is snowing here and driving around in the 4 inches of snow felt safe and controllable.

So this week I did shocks, engine and tranny mount and the SS. Next I have to change sway bar and control link bushings.
Cheers everyone.

Me too. Might be interested in the snorkel. Is that an ebay one or an arb?

I like the dark color of the wood grain. Too much contrast with a light color. A dark silver/ brushed aluminum might look good. And yea 5.9 pieces are hard to come by.
