Longer control arms.. Connect from your axle to your frame upper and lower.. 4 in back...5 in the front

Not sure...guy said this had a 4 inch lift...and i kinda like it. I want 1 size bigger tires only because i think it will look better. Although the gas mileage already sucks. But i think i need to check something. I read that the 4.0 is still pretty quick off the start but mine isnt. Its actually kinda doggie and doesnt wanna downshift unless i smash the gas peddle...really smash it. I know po said there was a throttle spacer and shift kit...and i hear the whistling from the throttle...so i think it just needs some adjustment somewhere

Trash the throttle spacer.. No performance gain.

You know you drive a zj .... When you get finshed with what (in theroy) should have been a straight forward install of junkyard scavenged factory tow hooks along with steering - tcase - fueltank skids on your 95 and finally take a well earned moment to twist the cap on an ice-cold corona. Somehow, you muster a painful smile (as the focus and determination of your endeavor starts to fade and the presence of multiple battle wounds begin to voice their increasing discontentment) only to find the satisfaction of your hard work short-lived .... Your accomplished grin has now been reduced to a guilted frown as your 94 looks at you with puppy-dog eyes cause she wants tow hooks, too.

When the first 3 things you do every time you tackle a major project are.
1. Take pictures
2. Crack beer
3. Tell Jeep forum, with pictures

Also, when you are addicted to taking videos and pictures of your ZJ wheeling because immediately after you have to prove to yourself that the glorified grocery-getting mini van you bought 5 years ago really just crawled over that rock or made it down that trail... and then drove you home afterwards.

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.

When you walk out of work and you have been surrounded by the "W"'s cause a ZJ is just that bad ***.

(what you can't see is a 95 4.0 has pulled into the spot behind me)
