But if I can't go wheeling again until I get my lift unless I trim. How much did you trim? Also, I want to do bushwhackers later and not for sure how high I can cut and still put on bushwhackers later.

Didn't trim any! For some reason on the front passenger fender, my tire when it gets stuffed will pull the lip on it down..didn't realize this the other day until after done wheeling, looked on my tire and its got a few cut marks, if it keeps doing that I might just take an air cutter to it and shorten it up, then fold it over so it won't cut into it and get pulled down anymore.

If you just simply lift it, it'll help a bit to keep the tire out of the fender because it has to travel up a few inches more to hit it, but unless you lengthen your bump stops then you're uptravel will still be at the same spot as it was before.

I let mine clearance themselves out, tires have a few chunks out of them lol

Flatten your pinch seams in the wheel well with a BFH.

Already have pinch seams hammered in nicely. Mine is hitting on the lip of the fender and the back side of the front bumper. looks like radiator support bracket extends up to there, or id just cut that part off.

I think I might have accidentally bought my Jeep 2 stable mates this week. I'd offered $300 for a 94 325i BMW a week ago and the guy called and said he'd do it. Then I've been trying to work a deal for my buddies 01.5 Audi S4 and I think he's coming around to doing the sale.

Are you doing a build thread? I'd appreciate it a lot. I want to build a bumper, but have no idea where to start.

Went to U-Pull and Pay today and grabbed a 231 out of a 93 xj and a 249 out of a 93 zj. My 93 is a DD and can't have the downtime of swapping the input shafts so I pulled the same 249 out of another zj for the input shaft. No pics, yet. Should be tearing them both down and geting the 231 ready to throw in the zj in the next few days. I'll try and get pics. Pretty easy taking them out, now its just a matter of swapping inputs and getting the new one cleaned up.

Big Gulps huh? Alriight! Welp, see you later!

Put it up for sale on craigslist and parents went and looked at a truck for me. Gonna go look at another wednesday. I wont be out of the Jeep game long. I am going to sell the ZJ after I get the truck to pay off the rents and pay down on the truck loan and some cool stuff for the truck, then plan to pick up an XJ and throw some of my old XJ's parts under it and make it a wheeler and tow it with the truck.

BOOOOOO!! Haha ....but seriously.....

On topic: lost the bolt from my sifter linkage and 3 of the 4 bolts that attatch the front ds to the t case, been having some vibes from the rear so I'm guessing they got shook out. Gona keep playing with the angles in the rear but I'm getting tired of adjusting it without success. Anyone have any suggestions of what else it could be? its only at highway speeds and for a very brief moment when I take off from a stop.
