My ZJ Build.

This is kind of the slow progress of how things have come since I've had my ZJ. I will add pictures as progress comes.

Here is when she was all stock. 235/75/15 BFG All Terrains.



Fog lights. Big Deal. Not. It was the first mod though.



My Pioneer head unit. Its pretty boring but I love it because I can adjust everything great.



Sony 1200w sub amp to run my 2 10 inch Kickers



Getting her dirty



Tinted Tails. Also added a Flowmaster around this time along with a CAI. But no pics of those. I'll get some.

<a href="http://s638.photobucket.com/albums/uu102/scarthearmada6/?action=view&current=n1225020438_30572373_2770.jpg " target="_blank"><img src="http://i638.photobucket.com/albums/uu102/scarthearmada6/n1225020438_30572373_2770.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

Forgot a picture of the Reese hitch I put on but I replaced it with this. Tomken steel rear bumper with reciever. 630 new i paid $47 at the junkyard.



Silverstar Ultras. HIDs some day.



And the real fun begins. 3.5 inch IRO f2r.



Installed. Still with my baby BFGs. Next to the WK. Came out to about 4" exactly.



With the 33/1250/15s i got off my bronco FREE. Paid 20 bucks for the D Windows. Thanks Pat.



Thats pretty much it as of now. The original sub setup I had was a 4 channel Alpine amp with 2 10 inch Type E's but one cracked so I got the kickers and the Sony amp. Im going to use the alpine amp for my speakers when I do them. 2 sets of Polk componets. I also have a horn I wired up. Not a train horn but still loud and fun. Future plans as follows.
Front bumper.
Tow hooks.
All 8 adjustable arms.
HIDs.
4.7 stroker.
Much much more.

let me know what you all think.

"Came out to about 4" exactly."

I lol'd at that part.

Looks good so far but I'm still shocked your tires aren't rubbing in the front.

If I were you, Id cut off that old ugly exhaust pipe after the muffler. Its just extra metal and it will give your jeep that little extra low hum. It sounds nice, plus its not sticking out.

how are those 33's with your 3.55's? I could easily fit 33's but am worried about the gear.

Well, I'd say mounting your lights up top would be sweet. Cops do it, so it must have some sort of nice visibility.
