Sweet! You should start a build thread. I'm debating on tires right now and KM2s are one of them. I'm also going for a 31 or 32 inch tire. Be sure to let me know how they work out, or start a build thread and I'll follow it and keep up to date!

Awesome. My step sister lives up in Manhattan and just had a baby so I'll be passing (close) by up there, and hopefully going to go up to Tuttle Creek as soon as my tranny gets fixed (going in shop next week) and then lift gets on. I'll definitely be making a trip up there before winter.

Hey more reasons to start a build thread! I think you'll be fine, might have to do some trimming but shouldn't be anything major.

I dove into the plenum gasket today. Well let me get this of my chest, if I ever see a Chrysler engineer I'm not going to say a word, just punch them in the mouth! I've broken at this point 3 separate vacuum lines. I can't even tell you how many times I thought to myself, F-it, I'll just deal with it.

STUPID JEEPS!












PS ZJ- I still love you!

Wont know till you lift it, but any problems you have, regardless of you being aware of them or not, will be magnified 10X by altering the geometry of the suspension and steering.
Not trying to scare you, just be prepared to drop more time and money into it to make it right.

When I did my BB last winter it showed me how bad my control arm bushings really were. They're still pretty bad now... I'm starting to get a little DW from them. I've got new control arms with bushings already pressed in, but I just don't have the tools or know how to properly and safely swap them out. I've been waiting on my buddy that's ASE certified to free up to help me out. He's pretty busy seeing he's the service manager of a service center for a Cadillac dealer.
