- RCB-ZJ- Build thread Project " The Daily Wheeler "

Current Pic






I have had a few request for a build thread so here goes

First off the MAN VAN comes from my friends with TJ's that say I wheel a mini van. Which then turned to MAN VAN

The jeep is a 1995 Limited v8 ZJ Upcountry

It has Flowmaster 40 series muffler with a magnaflow high flow cat. And a Cold air intake

I don't have any stock pics

Here are some then and now photos

Just lifted playing at the dunes


Got some black wheels and had to trim the front bumper a bit


More wheeling





Jeep doin work


How it sits as of today

Clayton long arm the front. I am going to leave the rear short arm. I also will be ordering a protofab prerunner front bumper with out the grill hoop and putting a winch on the front.

Im only going long arm in the front for the droop it will get. My suspension set up will be as low as possible with a large tire like I am running now.

you should make some aluminum plates to cover up the front of the bumper...looks a little weird

maybe something like this!
