Have you had it on a scale?
no issues with it. The 4slo is a torque beast. It does drop out of overdrive on hills but that is not a huge issue.

have not weighed it yet

Well I got a ZJ bottle today and got it all relocated will add some pics tomorrow. Had to move some relays for my lights and the evap valve but it worked great. Also used a heat gun to heat the top of the bottle then added a piece of aluminum foil and shut the hood on it. Custom molded to the hood, perfect fit.

Got the ZJ washer bottle installed and updated my rear tire carrier to hold the bigger tire and my high lift.

Washer pics, bumper pics to come later.

Nevermind just noticed you were running 4.10 gears...

Does the ZJ washer bottle hold roughly the same amount of fluid? I was thinking about doing this to move the bottle out of harms...stock WJ is in a bad location.

Man, this is a great build. I wish i had the dollars to get a few of the things you did. But, its obvious you love that thing. I can only imagine what your mpg is.

Love this thread and following it. Going to do some of the less costly things you have done.

well my driving is probably 70% highway, 2 lane road about half of that at 55mph and 30% city and I average 15 now, hoping it goes up. Pure highway I am probably already closer to 17 mpg.
