Compared to most, I wheel the piss out of my DD ZJ. I think it would be a much easiker task for me to state what I have not broken. Here it goes, My 5.9 motor. yep, that is about it. that is all that as been left stock. Nothing in my drive train is original. nothing. from different axles, to most of the steering to replacing the entire suspension system, as well as the transfer case and re46 transmission(twice). I believe I have found every weakness the ZJ has. It seems to make my head spin when I try to really tally up what I have broken out on the trail. or lets say what has broken on Me. Not like I am trying to break snit. It just never stops happening. The answer to most of my current problems is a Long arm set up so I can ditch all these upper control arms that seem to continuously have the mounts rip free of the Uni-body. but I like the thread!

I beat the hell out of my dd zj as well but i don't have enough challenging trails that i would brake all that stuff on but everything i haven broken has been in less than 2 months.
