havent really done anthing to the niner in a while. i did strip the lift and steering off my old jeep so i have that sitting in my garage along with my brand new sliders, t case skid and my bilesteins.

i like having a nice dd so not really wanting to lift the niner so i am saving up to get another zj hopefully this spring or summer and lift that unless i can find a good deal on a pickup truck then the niner will be lifted and i will use the truck as my dd

i am planning on installing the system i had in my old jeep in this one soon along with my radar detector and getting a remote starter installed.

it horrible when i first bought it i was going to lift it then after driving it for a while i got hooked on the speed and power of the 5.9. so now i am looking for another zj to install my lift into and make it my dedicated wheeler and winter vechile since new england winters are horible on vechiles. i have plans for two completely different styles of builds one lifted one street and they will make me poor if i do them both.

yeah, i would never drive a 5.9 in our winters if i had a garage. up here sucks for having nice vehicles. is the intake on the 5.9 the stock one?
