RedZJ Super Slow Build Thread **WHAT LONG ARMS SHOULD I GET?**
 
This is in no way going to be an extreme build and or a fast build... Just yet.

(1/10/11) my plan for now in 3.5 inch IRO lift with 33's, bushwhackers and custom front and rear bumpers...

Here it is...

I first got my jeep about 2 years ago for 700 dollars with a blown transmission.

Just when I was ready to buy my lift I did this..

So I had to dish out some money to fix the rad, trans cooler, grill, lights and so on.

Then I got new rims, rubbers and some stickers :]

The next thing I did was added some HID's. I work at night and need the light :]

That wasnt enough, so I added 3 Hella 500's

Then she got super Swampers..

http://i675.photobucket.com/albums/v...01127-1532.jpg

Here is how it sits right now. Stock on 29 TSL's. HID Head Lights, 2 HID fog lights, 2 130 Fog lights soon to be HID.

OK. SO Now lets get this thing rolling. I have the 3.5 inch lift. Just need 2 days to be nice out.
Plus I am going going to be doing the 242 swap also. Here is the lift for now.

I can get measurement if you want.

Used a ford wind star air box. (V8 Ford F150 air boxes would be a smarter choice)
PVC pipe. 2 and 1/2 I believe.

Ill get more pictures for you tonight. (Just got off work, Im going to bed now :D)
Ill get measurements for you on monday (if you want)

Flat_Black_ZJ 01-13-2011 11:12 PM

Ok man yea they would be nice. thanks

RedZJ 01-16-2011 08:16 AM
