My Jeep Build :D

Hey! Gonna start working on my 97 Jeep ZJ 4.0 here soon. Just some updates for now. The actual building process won't start for about another 3-4 weeks (hopefully I have to replace the transmission in between that time) But will be telling you the parts I'm buying to get her all fixed up and what not. But to start off with, I will be posting pictures and updates of how my transmission replacement goes! For now, I just ordered a new Spectre air filter, and a baby filter (breather) for the valve cover. Still deciding on what kind of piping to use for the air tube, but will keep you up to date!

Here's the baby filter and air filter I bought. Total spent: $32 combined

I thought they were. Good performance ones, and they were cheap! I think I'm going to get 3 or 3 1/2 inch exhaust pipe and get a coupler and hook it up and take out the rubber tube, but leave the bendy part (w.e its called) so I don't have to buy a new piece of angle. For now, thats the plan. Alright. I will do that!

Heres a few pics. Sorry for bad quality. Don't have the camera at the moment. Will take some better quality ones when I get it. But heres how it sets as of now (well actually about 30 minutes ago but you get it)

Here she is. Outside views, mileage, my after-market Panasonic head-unit (has some good punch to it for being fairly old) and of my rear view glass sticker (the "Jeep" part of the sticker is over the 3rd brake light so it looks cool at night )

Haha. I think I'm going to. I like it better the solid black, not faded grey lol. And it is, I just did a close up. If you look closely you can see on the left side of the sticker you can see the 3rd brake light, which is directly center in the jeep. Trust me I wouldn't put it on there off center haha. Though it is a little bit crooked, but can't notice really.

Thinking bout it, just deciding now. Trying to visualize it. I think it would look pretty cool.
