Its not THAT nice having a garage... I can't fit mine in without compressing the suspension or swapping tires in the driveway anyway....

Went wheeling after figuring out that my dw was caused by my front left tire being worn enough that it stands by itself like / . Also where should i buy sway bar links I am sick of braking them.

I was a little disappointed that it was made in Mexico, this piece of glass is almost as old as my jeep.

How is manufactured in 2001 and sold in 2012?

What don't you get? Better than "made in 2012 and sold in 2001". They made to many and it's been sitting in a wear house or something.

Same, only got to try my ZJ out after lift with 4WD once. The rest has all been in 2WD but that's ok, the duratracs do awesome and it's better for drifting lol.

Damn must be a short garage lol. My ZJ clears with lots of room to spare in my parents and the town houses I am looking at getting. Fitting my truck is going to be another issue length wise. My truck is only 9" shorter than my dad's 04 2500 ram quad cab lol.

Did some fender trimming and some wire stitching. Got caught on a tree wheelin' last year and finally took the front header off to fix all the cracks because you can't find a decent one here at PAP. I wish I had taken pics of the stitching around the pass side headlight bucket. Wow, it was Fubar'd. Really surprised at how strong it is now compared to what it was. And, now both lights are aimed forward instead of the pass side pointing up in the trees.

^ Ah, mine's the same way. I have to fold the CB antenna back to get in, but I could bring it back up inside if I wanted. In my case, it's about 2 feet more clearance inside than there is under the door.

On topic, my ZJ gets to take me to work and back today.

You will have to do some measuring and drill a hole in the radiator support to make the adjustment. That is the only down side to them. We wired the led's into a separate switch instead wiring them into the markers.

here is a shot of the tails we got with the heads
Those headlights look really nice. Where did you get them from?

Worked on the swap front axle. C-gussets, and tube inserts. Probably should have got the truss rather than the inserts. Great ...

If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

Changed the oil, installed my new inverter, and pulled the purple bubbling tint off the driver window, i suppose ill make the passenger side match it today.. I also got this cool 12v mini console fridge thing, i just dont know where to put it.
Today i want to start throwing some black at the interior, and mess with putting the inverter on a relay and switch.

Oh my god... Move to Canada then! We just had a big storm this weekend and damn, I'm so anxious for summer... The only advantage is being able to park like a boss, over snowbanks in my ZJ, while my neighbors are getting stuck in their tiny spots.
