Roughknight69's 95 zj build

Though its not much of a build now, the next year or so it will be changed alot.

To start off this is how my zj looked in feb of 2011 when I got it cost $2200. I bought it off of a fat kid who thought he was a baller. This zj has been in florida its whole life up to sept. 2010, so no rust! Practically puts 2010/2011s around here to shame.

Heres how it looked when i brought her home.

Lists of things I bought/modded that I can remember.
Blower motor resistor
new headlight
grill/plastic head panel
tinted tail light
Door switch
Painted gold strip black but eventually painted
entire cladding in Rustoleum Bedliner
alpine 100xdi radio
1800 watt amp
2 kicker cvrs


Then it looked like this.

Fastforward to the past couple months I added
New hd steering stabilizer
1.25 spidertrax spacers
rc winch plate
super winch lp 8500
replaced pass. side rearview mirror (fell asleep and hit a mailbox) and painted them in bedliner also.

Entire exterior done in monstaliner desert sand/black

and a bunch of other stuffs

edit: don't mind my spelling ill fix it eventually

So I took it off for now

Went wheeling today, I wish I got better pics of the harder spots I had to winch through many muddy parts that were half way up the doors. But the super winch lp 8500 pulled me slowly but flawlessly with many long pulls with my zj being dragged throu the mud.

What you got against fat kid's?!


RF wireing is amazing. I had there 0awg in my last jeep. It was like a limp noodle but for the price Kicker was cheaper with a higher strand count.

I love rf wire!

I love it even more now I can get it for half price


check out sonicelectronix.com I got everything for about half the price as crutchfield.

And nothing against fat kids, except when they try to be wangsta and failing horribly, while leaving a crap load of cheap cigar plastic end in my zj. And you know they werent used as cigars.

Iro 3.5 in kit with new rear coils, rear trac bar, and belly skid should be arriving by noon.

Any tips for installing the 3.5 in kit?
