You know you drive a ZJ when "do I refinish my grey plastic cladding, or do I get body color cladding instead?" is a legitimate question regarding your preference in style.

Both look good, so what do I do? Stay obviously Laredo, or go Laredo-Limited?

It's to hard to match unless you buy them prepainted so I'd say paint it black. Just my opinion though.

I miss my zj. However, just because you live near Spring Lake park doesn't mean all the killings were there. Most were .22 and at short range.

You know you drive a ZJ when you pull into a parking spot and everyone looks at you because your tires squeal (failed VC).

Double the reliability though!

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

I'm very seriously considering having the ZJ repainted, professionally, back to factory Moss Green Pearl anyway, between chips, scratches, dullness, and a miscolored door sourced from a Forest Green Metallic ZJ. This is of course all plans for way later on. I'll probably have new axles by then.

You know you drive a ZJ when you make plans for it, for years in the future, because you know you'll still have it no matter what.

I been planning most upgrades by tire life! It gives me plenty of time to save up.

1) bought jeep, got stock size bfg long trails! (lasted forever!)
2) t-case swap and a BB, upgrade to 31's bfg at! (last year)
Next step is full lift, prob go to 32's (to be determined..)

96 ZJ sittin up 6" on 35's with 4:56's and a 12k winch. Cuz...why the hell not!?

You need to start purchasing Pitbull or Interco tires then! Your Jeep is going to stay at that height for at least 50,000 miles!
