She's looking good. I know it may sound weird, but everytime I drive mine now that I've adjusted my linkage and re-torqued my vibrations are lessoning. Maybe the u-joints just weren't used to the angle after I lifted her.
Back on topic, I bought a coolant flush kit, plugs, & wires. Have to get my diff oil changed, and trim up my fenders. Have my first trail ride with my ZJ on the 15th. Susan G Komen crawl for the cure. Couldn't think of a better time to break in my ZJ than on a save the ta ta's trail ride.

My ZJ build, check it out follow along. Advice, tips, CONSTRUCTIVE criticism are always welcome.

well yours looks excellent. maybe this winter when i'm bored i'll give it a shot. my rear left fender is banged up from sliding on a tree so this is one way of "fixing" it hopefully.
