My advice

2bb
bump stops
31s an a front locker.
Buy what you want for a front bumper
If you can weld jcr or dirt bound are the best
If you can't nates 4x4.

Build an learn.
Don't do what I did. I put in a Dana 44 front and went to 35s :-/
I love it but god was it a lot of money and work. It was worth it but your budget is lower than mine.

5.2 ZJ Pushing a dana 30 as far as it will go.

Yeah I definitely want a lift but I don't want to have to modify by drive train very much. So would my max lift height be about 2.5 before I need to change more stuff?

If advice an Aussie.
And no closer to 4 inches of lift is where you will have problems.
Also kid get find a good pull apart yard and get good with tools.

Alright why would I really need a need set of axles if my jeep is mostly going to be a city driver. I mean if I lived in the country yes, but I am just south of Detroit. I guess if I found a locker at a JY id snag it but otherwise I don't see the point. If there's something I am missing please say something.

Extended Idle Switch

Had some free time today so I added a nice extended idle mod. It was extremely simple and only took about 15 minutes to do.

First I found Pin A-12 on the Black (Frontmost) PCM connector.



Then found a good location to tap into the wire.



Then ran a wire from the splice location through the firewall under the dash. Also tucking everything nicely back into the plastic harness cover.



Finally mounted a small toggle switch under the dash.



All in all, I think it came out pretty good.

Yeah I was pretty simple man! If you run into any problems just message me. Oh and be careful when you are tracing the grey wire back up the harness from the connector. There are two identical Solid Grey wires in that harness along with grey striped as well. Other from that I spent $4 on that switch from Advance Auto. The wire was actually some speaker wire I had laying around.

I've already got a switch plate so I'll be using that as my switch. Just gotta splice and run the wire. I can't see this taking more than 10 minutes haha.

Ah yes. I have seen that a lot lately. I personally love keeping things looking stock inside. You ever see these?
