Claiming your ZJ will be more off-road capable than so-and-so's FJ when your build is done...

Haha, yeah, I really can't complain. Honestly mine didn't even make any ticks or knocks. Just ran rough for a few mins. For a 240,000 mile engine, it runs great! 4.0l FTW!

When your friends count on you for a ride to a treacherous place riddled with rocks, steep uphill slopes, bumps, potholes, snow, ice and more rocks, with no place to safely turn around and you back into a rock that's covered in vegetation and bend down your trail pipe, while it's pitch black out.

When you debate putting R/T badges and/or SRT8 badges on the 4.0

All I need in life is my Jeep, my guns, and my wrenches... And maybe some fine women too

no just no

When you lift the rear end, but don't have the parts for the front, so you drive it around with that hot rod look going on because there's no other option...

When you spend your vacation staring at other ZJs and every time you spend money you think what you could have bought with it.

Looks like there's a huge invisible snow plow mounted on it lol

Lifted front or not it still looks awesome

Mines on 3inch spacers right now but when I put in my 4 inch coils in the front (don't have the rear ones) It'll just look like I'm always flooring it
