anyone have a preference for shocks? i want it to ride close to stock..
Take a look at the OME lift from Rocky Road. I plan to go with the Rocky Road shocks when I lift my ZJ. They claim to have the best ride. After all, what's the point of owning a Grand if it rides like a lumber wagon?

PurpleZJ, thanks for this post. The Skyjackers are the most available ones here in Europe but now I definitely will get the Bilsteins

Check out my build thread for detailed info on today's jobs. I:

- Flushed engine oil
- Changed oil and filter
- Installed a new Transfer case end seal to repair the leak
- Found out my rear drive shaft yoke is shot
- Found out my Transfer case is nice, clean and well maintained inside
- Found out my LSD works as if it was new
- Changed TC oil
- Repaired and reinstalled my original muffler for Ninja stealthiness

Got my edelbrock headers that were ceramic coated, i wrapped them and the y-pipe to the cat.
then 3'' magnaflow cat and wide body muffler.

sounds amazing, probably quieter than stock until you get your foot into it then it barks nicely, just how i wanted it!.
