Not to it, but for it. Cleaned out the garage so she will sleep INSIDE for the first time right next to her sis, 99WJ.

Yeah. I misread that. I thought you were referring to my post, not his.

went from this
http://youtu.be/1Cn8BLraeKA
to this

also fixed gas leak and reason the fuel gauge never worked PO put fuel pump in wrong and float could not function had a lot of dirt and water in tank leak was coming from the rubber gromit that runs to the evap can

its a PITA putting the skid and hitch up by yourself laying in the snow

Right, but with a 2" bb????

Add 2" to it or probably 1.75" since that's what most spacers actually measure.

Didn't finish until after dark.
Had to make a few trips to the hardware store and stopped at McDonalds for lunch where I took this pic.
Where do you get tail light guards??

Nothing yet, but I finally found my short front driveshaft... has spicers already and double cardan seems ok - gotta grease it though.

Yesterday and today I changed out the brake light bulbs, cleaned every fuse, checked connection on every electrical wire I could reach and realized that the fuse lid on the 97 ZJ Laredo is wrong. Get the owner's manual it is correct.

I thought we'd need longer driveshafts with more lift... Anyone care to explain this to me? Please?

On topic, last night I used it as a weapon of possum destruction. That thing wouldn't get out of my way. I swerved a couple times to avoid it but it kept running back in front of me. I also couldn't brake hard because of the ******* on my tail. NW Indiana is now down a possum. Today I took it "wheeling" for the first time with my front swaybar disco'ed. I really didn't notice too much of a difference but I was focused more on the back of my Jeep that kept sliding into the deep mud pits I was trying to avoid. I rotated my tires in December because the outsides of my fronts were getting pretty worn. Now those are on the rear and I can't get any traction to prevent me from sliding sideways. Stupid 249. I was going to get out to get a pic or two but the ground was so muddy and I was wearing a nicer pair of shoes that I didn't want to mess up to badly. Oh well, maybe next time I'll get some decent pics. Maybe next time I'll have better tires and have my 242 in as well. I know the 242 is definitely going in before I get new tires because I don't want to mess up new tires like these.

It's the nature of the geometry. The control arms bring the axles closer to the transfer case as the truck goes up.
