So what is the first part to typically go on the brake system of a ZJ? The brakes ee getting spongy do I bled the **** out of them and they're still spongy. Its weird because sometimes they're stiff and sometimes they aren't. Coming to a light they are there and if I let off just a hair and go back into the pedal they're barely there and the pedal almost hits the floor before they start stopping. Anyway to test if the master cylinder or booster etc? Thanks in advance guys

Could be a few things... Bleed again starting with rear passenger, then rear driver, then front driver, then front passenger calipers - this will help get all the air out if there's any in the system which is most likely what's going on. Next you can check all the stock brakelines especially the one running to the rear under the driver's side - with their age., some of these become elastic so to speak and may need to be replaced. Lastly (or first either way) check the entire system under pressure for leaks. I had a pin sized hole in one of my lines that caused this type of behavior.

Picked up a rear bumper for cheap a few months back but didn't like the way it mounted. It was a bit weak for what I intend to use it for so it's been on the backburner since... not anymore. It had been integrated into the receiver in a few points that were less than optimal, and that's now being fixed. Making sure everything is built so that it has some minor adjustment and is fully bolt on so that it can move to a future rig when the time comes. For now it's about getting it mounted and testing it, but something tells me I'll be trimming the edges for a better departure angle, not that the receiver itself won't impede the angle but I'd rather have it there as a reminder of just how steep something actually is. Now I'm going to have to lift the rear up a bit more as it's sitting level and I prefer it being a tad raked.

I think it needs a winch.

And the lights need to be moved.

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.
