Ever since i've been 16 i could of had a sweet 7"+ lifted ZJ. But then there wouldn't be any doe for the 3 quads and 1 dirtbike i've had throughout the years. I think it's funny that the quads i buy cost 4x as much as what my jeep cost me. I don't have em any more, b/c i sold them to get a croch rocket. But with my jeep getting broke into twice already; theres NO WAY i'm going to leave a gorgeous bike outside. I've looked at garage apartments and there like minimum $200 more a month. So to fix my adrenaline i was thinking about buying a cheap 250smoker dirtbike. Power and Shifting through gears is my own personal drug.

Not to mention i've probably lost $15k from having a g/f for 6 years.
just thought i'd throw in my

Sliders are on the list some where after lockers. Moab is probably a year or more away. If i'm State side next summer i'd like to do it if I have a tow rig or can even borrow one.

and i think im gonna go with the kor track bar. i was talking to somebody on fb last night and he said his iro double shear always comes loose and bangs against the body and hes gonna have it welded.. so idk.
Kyle! Are you reading this?!?!? He's finally taking my advice! Like Ive said a dozen times, cheaper isnt always better

Just curious, is there anything you regret doing or not doing to your ZJ?

Weird, I always ignore your adivce...hmmm... Nevermind, me and you know how that situation works.

As for cages, yes, there is your connection and another guy I was informed of out by JS does this kinda stuff as well for reasonable prices. John just underestimates what i'm gonna subject the green zj to and how bad of an idea it will be to not tow it if I am able to do hard core wheeling next summer at all

um not necessarily
well if this 242 doesnt get fixed this weekend then maybe the 242 and not going to a 231 lol. we'll see

and i would advice to skip the bb stage and go straight to a coil sprung lift. bbs are not fun rides. coils are way smoother

^


just 2 pics



its really dirty actually. idk why it looks so clean

those spots on the driveway are coolant/water leaks...looks like i may need a new radiator after all

edit: i also ordered 2 new lock rings for my 242 from the dealership but they gave me the wrong ones. so now i gotta print out a diagram to give to my mom so she cant show them (im 20mins away at school during the week, and come home occasionally on the weekends during the day to work on my jeep)
