Badbird just got a whole page in this thread about how awesome his ZJ is. He must be blushing

I'm extremely jealous of your ZJ, but even jealouser (it's a word. don't look it up) of your garage/bunker.

Beautiful ZJ though, I've been silently watching your build on that thing since before the cage and it has been very cool watching that thing come into being.

It looks like you're about to drop that rear coil...

That is some crazy flex though.
