Can you post a pic of your lights. I want to see what 4 looks like without the cover on. If I put my cover on I'm painting the cladding matte black.ii am going to paint my rims semi goss black. I already have the paint for that.

I actually don't have a pic of all 4 lights on. When I took the cover off, I took all the lights off too. I'll take a pic this weekend and post it on monday when I get it all set up!

I'm doing my cladding black this weekend too! Good luck with the rims! Post pics too, sounds like a good project!

Ic.tell me how the cladding goes. I will when I get around to the rims. I just started working two weeks ago and I'm on spring break this week and have worked everyday since Sunday. I'm off tomorrow but go back Friday. Jeeps kinda in the back burner right now as of things that don't NEED done. I'm flushing the radiator and heater core tomorrow. But I love the way limited rims look black.

Dropping my ZJ down from 5+" back to 3.5". Downgrading my 33's to 32's or 31's. Guess everyone is going bigger n taller, but I want my zj to ride a little smoother. Also, not have to lift my a$s so high just to get in.

Long Arms on the 5+ would help the ride

Same here, I sold my last car a 1995 Nissan 200sx 32+ mpg for $900 to pay off my debt for my ZJ to my girlfriends father. Who said i didn't need to pay him so quickly. Talk about kicking myself in the ***.

Later i posted an ad on craigslist for my ZJ (clearly I have an attachment to it as well, could never find anything "good enough" to trade for) and the same guy tried trading my car back to me for the Jeep. HA.

Miss that 5 speed.

Headed upto Summit racing either tomorrow or this weekend to pick up a set of soft 8 or d-window wheels for them
You're going to love those. The question I get asked most often is "are they loud?" My answer "I'm not one of those dumbarses who buys MTs and expects them to be quiet!"

I was so torn between these and the KM2s as I had 32" BFG MTs, but these things haven't broken a sweat in anything I've thrown them at... which hasn't been much yet to be honest. They live to be on anything slippery and that goes especially for streets. For now, I'm glad I couldn't score the KM2s because I had to compromise for the MTRs due to everything being on backorder..... ENJOY THEM!!!!!!! I know I will... now, are you willing to sell me one for a spare?? Pretty please?

Long arms one day. 32's will go where ever 33's would. Not a big difference.

Well today...I drove the ZJ to work as usual.

Went to Wawa last night after work and got a good look around and right away I could see the oil pressure sending unit/switch/whatever dangling...

It had sheared off at the nut thing where it attaches to the housing...quick trip to Advance for a new one and some oil...brought it home that night...

Glad it wasn't the oil filter adapter o-rings or rear main seal (yet...knock on wood)...

Ordered up some e-codes for it. Going to be swapping in my rear Upcountry coils as soon as I'm out of class in an hour.

Swapped the rear coils. 2 hours with just a jack, pair of jackstands and some basic hand tools. Didn't even disconnect the rear shocks, trac-bar or use a spring compressor

I also turned the front MX6s up to notch 3, left the rears at 6. Wet noodle suspension is fixed.
