Ha thanks man.

A little update. Getting the jeep ready for snow wheeling this year. Got my beadlocks for dirt cheap. Also Have a friend that works at ARB so going to order my bumper when I get back from Hawaii. And then going to order my IRO long arms for the front. To much to do and no time

Need to clean them up. Have just been sitting out side for a few months. Going to sand blast them and get them re powder coated. But having real beadlocks this year will be awesome

Right on dude! I got a couple friends ready for snow wheeling, Im definitely going to come along. What tires are you going to run? IRO long arms are going to be really nice, you have no idea until you have them.

As for tires I am going to run my 33in mud terrains I already have since they are brand new. Just going to swap wheels. I was going to buy a complete new lift but I can save major cash by just going with the IRO long arm upgrade.

I have not been driving the jeep much at all and am getting ready to buy a new car. So the jeep is taking the turn to a expedition camp rig. Work has been crazy slow lately putting all my stuff on hold. And also saving for my Hawaii trip has sucked all my fun money away from the jeeps.

Very nice build. I wish I could run 33's on my lift. Do you have adjustable uppers? Is it just a 4in lift?

That is one great looking ZJ. The Red and black look so good together. Looking forward to more build progress.

P.S. I bet the Bushwacker fender flairs would look awesome on your rig. I really like their red ZJ in the catalog.

Yeah I hated the gold on it when I got it. The bushwacker flares are cool but I cant justify the money they want. If and when I get flares they will be iceland ones and the jeep will get 35's then. I am on the hunt for a waggy dana 44 for the front. I already have a 9in for the rear

So is it just a 4'' lift to fit those 33's? I really want 33's but I'm afraid of what else I have to upgrade.

Yeah its 4in. The fenders are just cut to clear the 33's. When I long arm the front it will get 2 more inches of lift

The beadlocks are a DIY kit a guy I know makes. All laser cut and very good quality. They are welded to a allied steel wheels. As of right now I am only in them $25.00

Cleaned the wheels up yesterday. Getting ready for the sand blaster then of to powder coat

Also you can see the quick air down already installed in the wheels. Airing down in the snow will be a snap
