Yep lmao so I thought it was a deal. Already 3" lift, 31" tires, needs a new constant for front drive shaft other then that it's a ZJ

Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.

Looks Nice!! Those look like Eccos off of a cherokee sport. Can't tell from the pic, did you paint the entire wheel or just the inside and leave the polished lip? Either way, they clean up well.

The driver side lower dash comes out, the glovebox comes out, the trim from around the glovebox comes out, remove the ashtray, then pull the screws holding the VIC in place. To remove the glovebox, if it hasn't been done before, there will be a rivet on either side holding it in place. The FSM says it's not important to replace the rivets when reinstalling the glovebox.

Two lines by to the right of the battery near the radiator. You'll need a 1/2" ac/fuel line disconnect, and 4 new o-rings. My vacuum pump and gauge set is 5 hours away so for now I put 26oz of r134a and it's working fine. Low side reading 45Psi at 95*F outside.

No worries, once I'd posted that I used the search function (like I should have the first time) to find it. Found a great write up. Considering going out there right now

Costs way more to build it. I paid $3500 for bruiser because it had $900 in tires, $900 locker, $400 shafts, d44, $500 rear locker, was geared, $2000 lift. Right before I bought it I ordered gears and shocks for my 98 for $1000, knew I needed lift and tires, so it was cheaper to buy another one.

94 jz, bruiser, la, cage,5.3 ls, 36 swampers 98 jz, the mutt, 3.5 iro, 33 swampers, avalanche conversion, 02 north face avalanche blacked out work truck, 06 rhino R1 engine, 4x4, Leeroy's custom paint, 04 escalade wifes truck 22s, 03 duramax 18s, completely blacked out, efilive by nick, wicked wicked truck, 39 chop chevy rod, aluminum 5.3 ls, 08 apex, 310hp mcx turbo, holz 162, completely black, CCM built.

Yup, they're Eccos off a Cherokee Sport. These had no polished lip, the whole wheel was originally silver. I'll post a close up pic in a little while.

I may have to paint my wheels. Though in not sure what mine are off of, some say TJ, others XJ.

Fixed the trans line leak, sealant wasn't cutting it so I JB welded the threaded barb fitting into the trans. Then put on heavier duty hose clamps. The. Went or a test ride behind the house. No leaks, woot!

Your wheels look like the ones that came on the TJ. I've seen the ones with the polished lip on those, but don't recall seeing them on a Cherokee.


EDIT: Here is a close up pic of how mine came out.
