I know it's not for everyone, but my back was made up of 50% sub box the other was a craftsman tool bag, tool set, and jack. The man reason is to organize tools/recovery gear and have organized camping gear to. I hope it will make camping less frusterating.

I just made this simpler drawing up to show you what i'll be doing. There will be a bunch of other things going on, but gets confusing in my crappy pictures.

The bottom will be a pull out drawer for my tools/ recovery gear, the middle will be some kind of pull out table to use for camping ( only half of it will be a drawer and the other part will be sorage for tent spikes or something) Then the top will be a much bigger flip top drawer for bigger things.

Anyway, my rear arms are longer than stock, pushing my axle farther back with the lift than stock arms would. My rear sits at about 4.25" of lift with the axle pretty much in the stock location. I'll try it before I use the JY shaft I got. Badbird, I'll buy ya a case of beer if you fly out here and do the swap for me. You seem to know everything about it. Lol. I guess if you do it, you learn though. I know a hell of a lot more now than I did when I got my ZJ because of all the work I've done on it.
Thats kinda what I was thinking...that having adjustable arms in the rear might let me get away with not cutting anything. Well, I suppose I will find out if I ever get to actually acquiring said t-case.

Changed the oil today, and had the coolant and trans flushed. Tune up will have to wait till tomorrow though.

Also came up with a few cheap/free things to do soon :
Replace the AC condenser(have spare, needs to be installed)
Black out the gold "Grand Cherokee/Limited" letters and badge
Ordered pinion yoke for front diff, will be able to throw on the front drive shaft as soon as it gets here...hopefully the VC isnt quite toasted yet, we'll see.
Gonna grab some sea foam to run through...gonna smoke the neighbors out tomorrow afternoon, lol.(Speaking of which, besides the gas tank, where does anybody recommend using the sea foam, I know there are other systems or places in the vehicle it can benefit, just never used it before)
Gonna buy a hook for the winch cable here, probably today or tomorrow.
Oh, and I have a buddy thats gonna come over and square me away with getting the CB up an running. We have a camping trip planned towards the end of the month that I would like to get most of this done by: at least have working 4wd, the CB alive and kicking, and a hook for the winch in case I actually need it.

Think thats it for today.

Almost forgot...ordered a machette and a couple stickers from http://zombieresponseteam.net. Gotta be ready, lol

Tried bolting my 33 in swampers onto my 3 in bb zj. No chance, then started hoisting up to see what height I need, just isn't going to happen with stock arms. Anybody need some 33s that seam like 37s? Lol.

I know, right?!? I have this sneaking suspicion that you might not be quite as excited about this machete as I am, lol. Lift? Winch? Tires? Yeah whatever...the machete will easily be the coolest part ever installed in my ZJ! lol.

And badbird...dude, thats badass!(But does it have any where to mount a machete?!?)Lol. I do like it though, sweet rig you have there.

Wheels are 15x8 but found out they are 3 in bs. 15 mins of solid sledgehammer work and they work now. Need bumpstops as I have none but the work.
