You do get some extra HPs from stickers though. I know when I had lots of stickers on my back windows, I was about a whole second faster 0-60. Now that they're gone, my ZJ is back to performing like a lifted 5.2 with lots of added weight.

You will go slower with stickers since they have weight.

I recommend de-badging the Jeep and sanding down to bare metal to get rid of the paint weight.

I scored some 2 Inch pucks with Bilsteins for $125 on Craigslist, did an oil change, and replaced the drain plug since it was jacked up

In any matter, they are all getting replaced when I pull the engine out and put it into my YJ.

You gain no HP by removing or adding weight. You do increase/decrease power/weight though.

Discovered my axle is bent...
You do gain mpg. Read once that every 100 pounds lost you gain 1 mpg.

Money doesn't buy happiness, but it buys a Jeep. And I ain't ever seen a sad person in a Jeep!!

Mounted and balanced the new matching and relocated the roof rack/brackets for the spare on the 96, did some housekeeping and swapped batteries in the 97.

Used it to pick up about $200 worth of freon and oil for various friends and families vehicles. Recharged 7 cars this morning and finished with a few oil changes this afternoon. Got my oil drained and filter removed before I realized I never bought the stuff to change my own oil...
Luckily my friends car was here lol. Forgot how much I missed driving a car with a manual trans. Thinking about picking up a 5-speed something to use as a DD while the zj is down next year for upgrades

Put the gauge on and found I lost quite a bit of freon running it nonstop for the last 2 days. Atleast 10psi, guess I'm gonna look a lil harder at that vacuum and gauge kit.

96 ZJ sittin up 6" on 35's with 4:56's and a 12k winch. Cuz...why the hell not!?

Looking at new ligy nuts to go with my new wheels. Anyone using the gorilla lugs? Not sure how I feel about locking lug nuts, seems like it could be a bit of a hassle to deal with if you have to change a tire on the trail.

Not using them currently but I have before. I never had a problem with them at all. Actually worked out better for me on my last truck since the holes for the lugs were too small for a regular socket or 4-way.
I just left the lock in the glove box and never had to worry about losing it

Will 235/75/15 fit on stock rims at stock height and not have any rub issues?

You might have slight but of rub. But they fit on a stock 98 XJ with no rub, and that sits lower than a stock ZJ. it's worth a shot. I had to get a 2" BB for my rig because of my 235s rubbing after I put my bumper back on, but my front end isn't quite stock after my accident last year. I say go for it, and if it rubs just pull your bumper off, lol.
