ZJ Before and After Thread

simple concept, another member started a before/after thread but asked solely for WJs. so lets see only ZJs before and after pics. make sure to add info such as lift/tire size. i'll begin with mine
step 1-before

step 2-new wheels/tires

step 3-BB with F>R

step 4-same lift with bald 32s on stock rims

step 5-same lift/tires with ARB bumper

step 6-RE 4.5" lift

step 7-new 235/85/16 hankook mud terrains

step 8-
-before

-after

step 9-the final after picture

thus concludes the 9 step program of my jeep
yal can just do a before/after or you can list yours in steps. i just did mine in steps for the heck of it


1996 ZJ- 4.0, AX-15 5SPD/NP242, RE 4.5" lift, 36x12.50x16.5 Goodyear military surplus tires, Longarms/Tri-4 link/one ton axle build/swap in progress, arb bumper, a bunch of other goodies
1995 XJ- 4.0 HO, ax-15(stolen for swap), stock
2001 GMC Sonoma-RIP...
2002 GMC Sierra 1500 ECSB-roadtrip/long haul vehicle

Darn it, -cAcHe-, I forgot the light bar you have. That's pretty insane. A lot more high profile than the low profile I want, but no wonder you're laughing at me for wanting the Renegade bar. LOL It's a dinky toy compared to yours. I love your Jeep.

Yes, it snows in Texas.
