i had a similar idea of having my friend make me a long black vinyl just to put over the gold stripes. thanks for the idea tho

You'll be ok with the rear cover. I've never stopped anyone for them, nor has anyone I know. I've never been stopped either. I'd say go for it!

Alright, we already know im setting up for a TERRIBLE disappointment with my luck. I doubt it'll be there by the time my mom goes down in two weeks to try and get it.

On that note, anyone in TX near San Antonio wanna buy a Jeep and hold it for two weeks if they get the cash transferred? lol.

Great thread! Personally, I am not a big fan of the smoked taillights. Blacked out trim, black wheels, and blacked out taillights leave you with no contrast what-so-ever. But its your Jeep and its the way you like it!!

Will you post up more pics of the painted wood trim?? What process did you use??

yeah i came to realize i had next to no contrast one day so i did thought of some things i could do.

i put the chrome center caps on, and im thinking next set of tires i put on i might put white wall out
what do you guys think?

oh and for the woodgrain, i used rustoleum auto primer (yeah i know, rustoleum on plastic, kinda weird but it works great), then a couple coats of krylon fusion black (LOVE that stuff).
whenever i get a chance im gonna start swapping out the rest of the woodgrain for the parts i have painted black.

i need to put my entire interior back together and get shots of all the pieces iv painted.
ill take some pics of the pieces i have painted but not installed yet this weekend when i go home

oh ok.
you should join us for jeepskool on the first weekend of every month. its in mantua so its close to you.
pm if ur interested.




i figured since this was my build thread i should include some ideas for future mods. so lets start.

Relative Future:
-3.5-4.5" lift
-15x8 cragar d windows for my 32s
-4.10 gears
-d30 truetrac
-hella 500 for my grille

Someday:
-headers
-m1 intake manifold
-mopar perf ecu
-7" on 35s?
-cam, rollers, rockers, lifters
-sliders
i could make a huge unrealistic list here if i wanted to. but im set on keeping this jeep forever because i love it, and whenever my engine dies, replace it with a 5.9 or 408 and go from there and make it amazing

I love build threads. Your ZJ is coming along nicely. Would you reccomend the brake upgrade that you did, or was there not a big improvement?

theyr especially good when heated up. they bite pretty nicely as well.

clip of my exhaust

i dont have the taipipe installed yet, nor did i have my rear o2 sensor on yet
so all that is on is my 3" magnaflow cat and my super 44
my throttle cable came off the piece it is supposed to rest on so there was alot of slack and my pedal was very stiff and i coldnt rev it that easily so the video isnt that great. i found this out afterwards and fixed it. ill get a better vid this weekend, and one on whenever i get the tailpipe on

so heres a little teaser

http://s390.photobucket.com/player.s...fs=1&os=1&ap=1

and yes that blue is coming from my HIDs

edit:
the slack in the cable really makes the revs sound horrible. i could only rev it up to like 3k... i just watched the vid again. this is a terrible video and doesnt really capture the true exhaust note.
im taking another one ASAP.
