New build thread: Blizzard

So after i blew the tranny out in my old ZJ I got another one since I have too much in mods to try and sell them.

Picked up a 95 Limited with the 5.2V8 for cheap. 70k on motor and tranny, 140k on the body. Still had the ugly gold trim on it.





First item was to order a Magnaflow catback and exhaust. Got it at cost and then had it welded up for $100. Didn't bother with a tip since it will only get wrecked.







Next was the gold trim and the bug guard. Guard came off, might go back on when I paint and trim it. Painted all the gold trim black and re-did the pinstripe.





New JF sticker and CB antenna

The 3.5" RE lift, 1.25" coil spacers and all the junk from the old one should be getting swapped on next weekend. Im going to pick up a set of Canyon rims to paint black and put either my 31's or new 32's on.

Looks good, but I'da just put a turndown on, instead of having it go straight out without a tip, it just looks odd IMO. But thats just a pet peeve of mine. Carry on!

Bit of work got done, pretty much half the club is done for repairs of their own or on vacation so its been a bit hard to get help.

The red ZJ is all stripped now, I just have to decide if I'm going to part it since everything but the tranny is good or try and sell it whole.




Figured while its apart I'd add a bit of protection. So i got my rock sliders painted and ready for welding.



Skid plate for the gas tank


And a diff guard for the rear


After its all put back together I'm done messing around with it for a year, its been such a pain to do all of this over.
