Soldier's budget build to have fun before going down range...

1997 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4
  • IRO 2" Budget Boost
  • Rancho 9000 Shocks
  • Cut Front Bumper for Clearence
  • Pro-Comp Front and Rear LCA's
  • Jeep TJ Gas Filler Door
  • 31x10.5x15 Cooper Discoverer S/T (I wanted 32's but couldnt find any used ones anywhereeee that were reasonably priced )
  • Unkown Wheels 15x10 with 4" of BS
  • Front Sway bar Quick Disconnect's

I believe it used to have a Pro-comp lift on it because it came with the Pro-comp LCA's and Pro-comp shocks and the springs looked pretty new and were powdercoated nicely. It must've been pretty old because it was supposed to be a 3" lift but it wasn't much more than an 1" over stock when I bought it... so thats why it looks higher than normal with the 2" BB.

Nope, no issues. Doesn't rub on anything after I trimmed my front bumper...

He wasnt jacking you, he was commenting on your ZJ, as people commonly do in Build Threads. Most of what you saw in his post is his Signature.
BTW, nice Jeep, really nice fender trimming.

Nah, he edited his post. At first he posted a bunch of pics and vids of his ZJ cause he thought it was the lifted pics thread...

Thanks for the compliments guys...
