He isn't obsessed by looks like you are. It's a trail rig. Low center of gravity is best. Tires give axle clearance not lift. It will be very functional. This isn't a beauty competition or cardomain.

Yeah I tend to ignore him. He's an over opinionated dip ****.

I'll be chopping the hell out of mine soon to fit some 35s with a 4 inch lift too. Just as soon as I get a new DD.

Don't forget your hair gel and tanning lotion when you get to the trail

Took the battery out so I can test it at work tomorrow. Couldn't even jump start it tonight. 3rd time this winter, battery's probably no good.

Can't wait for this weather.

OT: Washed the salt off my jeep from our southern snow week. it was a toasty 35 degrees so I figured it was as good a time as any to wash her. Oh and adjusted the rear axle, I swear I'll get this rear pinion perfect even if it kills me...

95 FiveTwo ZJ, DD, Lifted, Locked on 35s, Build (in progress)

My 5.9 swap (in progress)

Want your zj to be doorless in 60 seconds?

With the front sway bar still hooked up, doesnt hit a thing. Rear hits bumper, for now.

I dont care to cut this one up. I will do it as tastefully as possible. Cut up looks better than beat up. Plus, this is my 600 dollar eBay jeep i accidentally won. I bought 2 WJs and traded 1 for the dana 44 rear locked and the matching ratio front. Also got the lift in the trade. Budget build for sure. Hell, i only gave 80 bucks for the tires. I plan on running 33's, so if I make these fit, 33's will be a cake walk.

I got a WJ that I drive everyday.

Yes you guys are 100% right. My builds are done right, function as they should, and look good. I wouldnt have it any other way. Anyone can hack up a truck to stuff tires under it. Not the way i do things.

You are such an insufferable prink that it's quite amazing. Most people become aware of their flaws and try to change but you just keep plowing ahead with your arrogant insecure idiocy. At least you are sticking to it.

Besides, I can tell that you have no experience or concept of wheeling off road based on your responses which seem to revolve solely on vanity and looks rather than function. You are better suited for mall parking lots and ricer car shows.

It may not look good but it works. I'd rather run less lift and more trimming on a trail rig, keeps the COG low.

Charged the battery at work. 6 hours and it wouldn't go past 90%. Got it back in and started right up and went for a romp in the fresh snow.

Put some sliders on the other day. First time snow wheeling with it last year I bashed up the driver side rocker panels pretty good. No more of that! Now I just need bigger than a bb to get some ground clearance back
