Hello everyone. Ive been browsing around this forum for awhile now and figured I would start my own thread for my ZJ I just bought.I owned a 92 XJ about a year ago but ended up selling it. Then I realized how much I missed having something I could take other than the street. (My other vehicle is a lowered Mustang). So i definatly wanted something to drive everyday in that was comfotable. I came across this ZJ and got the buyer down to $800. Im pretty sure its called Moss green and has the Pimp Daddy Gold package. The body is pretty nice and interior needs some work. Has 221,996 on the odometer the morning after I bought it. Let me know what you think.
I knew something was wrong with the rear end before I bought it so I tore it apart and found a blown wheel bearing and a grooved axle.
So I have one in the mail and then I can assemble all of that together and get it back on the road. While I was at the junkyard trying to find a axle for it I came across some tow hooks and grabbed them.
I had to fix a few sensors like the liftgate one, coolant temp sensor and a few others. But the motor runs really smooth and doesnt leak any oil. The tranny shifts really smooth and 4wheel drive works. It does need a catalytec coverter. I plan on a new headlight kit, tint front windows, new headliner, carpet, and newer door panels. Any opinions welcome. I am not a fan of all the gold and am thinking of taking off the badges. Hope you enjoy.
Well its been awhile and Ive been a little busy. But I managed to upgrade my exahust. The catalytec converter was SHOT and the muffler had a whole so I ordered a stainless magnaflow cat and stainless magnaflow muffler and put them in tonight. It sounds amazing. I installed new headlights and cleaned it up a bit. I should be installing my tow hooks tomorrow. Cant wait for lift and tires.
Ok heres a couple pics and a video of the exhaust. New headlights and tow hooks are in. The exhaust is a Magnaflow direct replacement catalytec converter with a Magnaflow muffler. Revs were to 2300 max. Hope you all like it. 3.5 IRO lift and 32" tires coming soon.
Got a few things done recently. Took out the seats and cleaned up some stains on the carpet. Also got a pretty nice carpet for the rear. ( Didnt have one when I bought it.) Also got a cargo net and put it all together. Mounted up a mag light in the side of the back. Got my jeepforum sticker and put that on and lightly tinted my tails. Here are a few picks. Saving for my lift and hopefully getting that this month.
Well its been awhile since I have posted up but I have gotten a few things done on the Jeep. I got the CB all wired up and working. Put d windows with Goodyear tires on it that I got for a steal. The front windows are now tinted to 35%. I am currently working on the plenum gasket. Here are some pictures.
Wheels and tires.
Working on the plenum.
