Well I put my lift and tires on ........I'm going to need track bars badly lol drives a little sporadic . The 3" bb is scary on the back even with post extensions so I think I'm going to run the 3" bb in the front and just put some front springs in the back . Any options or pointers for me. Any suggestions would be a great help

You'll want to address the rear springs one way or another. 3" BBs are too much. You'll drop a spring for sure if you wheel it at all.

On topic, I drove it to a Heritage of Heros festival in Valparaiso, IN. It's about 25 minutes to 30 minutes away depending on traffic. The ZJ did fine on the drive. It was a nice ceremony in honor or memorial day as well. There were lots of cool Jeeps there, most of them from the Northwest Indiana Jeepers.

Replaced bearings and seals in the rear end, had to get a new axle one was grooved. When tearing the rear end apart the parking brake shoes were completly gone, and the lever was siezed together. Put a diffrent rear cover on the d35 that has a screw in plug instead of the rubber one. Gotta love working on a 20 year old jeep.

Needs a foot rest

I hate when old people poke me at weddings, point and whisper, "You're next." So I've started doing the same thing to them at funerals

Surprised you had room to fish on this weekend. Eglin,hulburt, tourist, and graduation getting close make for some crowds down your way. You must have a secret location. I did nothing to the zj while I prepared the other"s WJ for her 3 week trip to see her relatives. Plugs, all filters,blah blah. I hate working on the wj.

did some wheeling.



both jeeps are only on a 2" BB, the green one is factory UC however. It is on 36's, the black one on 31's

and yes, you can still flex on 36's and a BB

Only the back though right? With no fenders up front did you just have to hammer in pinch welds?

In all seriousness, front is hammered pinch seam, some sheetmetal work in front of the tire as well as a BFH to the bottom of the wheel well/fire wall to get more steering angle from it.

the rear, cut the entire rear "flare" off the quarter panel, some hammer work to the rocker and fender lip. Needs more bump stop, as in this pic the body is resting on the rear tire, which in turn destroyed a D35 shaft.

ran that setup for years with extended rear post as the rear coils kept dropping out.
