Mine wasn't exactly in pristine condition when I bought it. I wanted the baddest platform to start with and go from there. Ever since I was a kid I wanted one with the mud flames down the side....remember the old ads? Lol

Got a check engine light on the ZJ, but it is too cold (TX, 40'F) to mess with it tonight. I will pick at it tomorrow, hopefully.

A 94 ZJ with a CEL? Thats pretty good, it's not easy to trip the CEL on an OBDI Jeep Atleast there arent a whole lot of things that it can be.

Nope no auction shes just my baby and shes VERY clean. I bought her about 5 years ago from a mother who let her young daughter eat and drink in the back seat. Milk spilled everywhere, seats glued together with food and spilled drinks. I spent a lot of time gutting the interior, pulling carpet out, literally whe whole interior was removed, cleaned, and put back in. Outside has been fully detailed, axles and wheel wells painted flat black, engine bay detailed, some performance engine work done, new tranny, 242 transfer case swap, new rear, slotted rotors, new tires, shocks, the list goes on and on. She looks great, runs great, is pretty damn quick and will kick the @ss out when punched out from a stop with no problem. I plan to have it a long time,and keep it looking the way it does for just as long. I have an engine build in the works making roughly 425 horsepower out of a 360 with no blower and no turbo all motor. The 5.9 was a special Jeep $42,000 in 1998 and not a whole lot of them were made and roughly half of them are left. It's got a lot of options not used on any other ZJ of any year, it's not just a bigger motor. With out the 5.9 there would be no SRT today. Would you wheel an SRT? I wouldn't. Just me i know its a Jeep but its not just any Jeep.

Nope stock stroke and a finish hone. Block is a Z code block from a 98 ZJ 5.9 had 130K miles on it and still had crosshatch. Stock crank and forged h beam rods, edelbrock aluminum heads, harland sharp roller rockers, hughes custom grind cam 540 lift, sct tune, headers, 3" exhaust, ported and polished throttle body, hughes airgap intake manifold, 24lb ford fuel injectors, arb studs and bolts, mopar performance billet double timing chain, the laundry list goes on lol Build is not yet complete and of course not yet in the Jeep. Im in the process of buying a house so naturally this is put on hold. Motor in the 5.9 runs just fine right now so im not in a rush but once done, she will be an animal.

That is impressive because you would be lucky to see 440hp out of a 6.7 stroker, I think you would need boost. You are not talking about to the wheels right?
