Construction of my ZJ and greetings from faraway Russia

I apologize for my English because I write a lot through Google translator

So a year ago I bought a Grand Cherokee in 1995 for the release of 7000 dollars (here in Russia is a normal price)


I bought it to make it a car for long trips to places or difficult passable for the expedition


It was finally decided to integrate the security framework to enhance the body
Install shock absorber bilshtayn 5100 (2 in rear axle and 4 in front)
as I decided to replace the bridges on the DANA 44 of Wagoneer (since 44 given us a great rarity others I have not found in Russia and CIS)
bought a traction Panara to lift a 7-inch, pitman arms, springs, Iron-rock on 7 inch,switchable stabilizer bars, steering shock absorber

started!

cabin was disassembled


did hatch for easy removal of the fuel pump


When working with the back panel was necessary to remove the gas tank, he decided at the same time strengthen the back of the left spar, because this place is weakened by a hole under the neck of the tank. On vehicles used on off-roads in this area often cracks.




cropped flared wheel arches and deepened the inside of the arch




have an integrated security framework





measured the spring and 33 wheels!

Like your roll cage and fuel pump access. I agree that sticker is killer!

Надеюсь, что это работает ... Как ваш каркас и доступ топливного насоса. Я согласен, что стикер убийца

Not that old. Not Napalm and F4 old. I am F14 old with some F18 blood in me. All I am saying is Up until the first Gulf war and after , I knew every parameter to every threat in the Soviet Naval Arsenal. That was a big wast of memory space now wasn't it. Now I can forget it all and Have a Beer with the OP I am good with that.

Thanks guys!
machine to repair just went with the label about fuel economy, the other labels stuck just when they began to build))
hole for the fuel pump made for easy replacement as we do not have mountains like you have a stone mountains or swamps and mud, and marsh shooting toplevny tank is not the best option
