He's going to be the 40 year old in the basement living off his parents?

Kidding, just kidding. I want everything you have listed except you can keep the wheels. I like alloys myself. That is all. Oh and

so far im $100 under budget. hell yeah!


oh and I got the bilstein 5125's instead of the 5150s. Theres more added costs to the 5150s (need stud conversions and bar pin eliminators - by that point the shocks will be too long).

Spent about an hour on the phone with kolak. I will say this again, he always goes above and beyond for me and I greatly appreciate all the help he has provided for me over the years.

Pretty sure you need a stud conversion on the 5100s too, atleast with mine I do.

haha I got a long ways to go before im 40
I like alloys too, but any that I have seen that I actually like on a zj are way expensive
I dont mine the d windows style steelies
I actually may get differnt rims in the near future, that I have yet to see anybody run. Just gotta get them, then get them powder coated and some wheel spacers. Might or might not do them though. They look great so im tempted to do it

kolak said the 5125s that im getting (12" travel - good for 7" of lift) will work just fine.

I am doing that hopefully here soon, we will see if I have cash before GSW. Sick of steel wheels and the weight they have, going alloy.

Huh, guess you will see when you get them.

I would just get black lug nuts, I guess locking ones wouldn't hurt. I know where you can get black lugs for $25 for 20 with free shipping. Let me know if you want to know where.

I needed stud conversions for my 5125s as well. How much difference in cost is it between 5125s and the 5150s on just plain shocks, no hardware?

You need the JKS upper conversion kits for the front shocks.

Like this.
