I have been to Moab a few times with the ZJ in my sig. Last time a friend came with his 98 ZJ with 31s, an Aussie locker in the rear, and a 2" BB. He did several of the trails without any problems. There is a wide range of easy to difficult trails there. There is something for everyone. FWIW, A 4.0 ZJ with a 242 tc, an HD 44 (44a) in the rear with an aussie, 33" tires, and a 3 1/2" lift will go more places than you can imagine with minimum breakage. This setup will go 90% of the places you would want to go.

Wasn't hard at all. The linkage was pretty straight forward. Had to trim the console some for the twin sticks. Aside from the Clayton LAs, it was the best mod that I did. I run a lot of the trails in 2lo and use 4lo and the lockers only when needed. It makes tight turns easier and with 488 gears and a 3.8:1 tc, I can descend very steep hills without touching the brakes. It makes for a nice slow crawling speed too. I'm probably going to put one in the TJ too.
