cut the bumpers,make a snorkel,if you fish make a rack use some closet rods, make a chepo light bar using the stock rail. buy a cheap roof rack from e bay -mine was 60.00- then attach crap to it and make it look like a 400 dollar one. Ditch the carpet and rhino line it. Paint the interior plastics,turn the ac compressor into an oba setup. I could go on for days. What got me going was just start looking through all the build threads and see what other guys are doing. For me it only takes an idea and then the mouse starts running on that wheel....u get the point. It also depends on what you want to do with it as well. Your doing a good job so far be creative.

Check out my build might give you some direction. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/m...t-jeep-847157/

I like the cut bumpers. Do you run a filter on your snorkle?

These are great ideas.

OP, the main thing your ZJ needs is a lift... make it more rugged and capable off road.

2" bb and new shocks improved my ride.

good gas mileage is highly overrated.
