Zombie Juicer Build Thread

It's about that time to start a Build Thread do to the new changes coming in the next month or so. I call it the Zombie Juicer because a group of friends and I have decided to make a few vehicles that would hold up for the "Zombie Apocalypse" My ZJ has a lot that will need to be changed before it is ready for that. But I figured I better start this Thread now before I get to far ahead of the game. Plus I wouldn't mind some ideas thrown at me mid projects!

Let me know what you think so far!
Jaclyn

Took the quads to a parade in November, pulled it no problem. Then put a whilrybird on it just for giggles, I want to get a real light bar eventually. I got the Jeep with 105,000 less than 5 months got to 111,111 make a wish!

The stock rims were gold and silver, which were starting to flake and bubble, so I sanded them down, primer, and painted them gunmetal.(Took a day to sand, primer, and paint) I was bored and bought 4 lights from a friend for $10, so I took off my stock roof rack bar, measured and drilled four holes and put the lights on and wired them in. (Took about an hour or so, wiring took the longest) Just plowed the driveway so I thought hey perfect time for some articulation, watch out stockie over here ha

Now even though the front lights I put on before worked okay, I thought they looked to little to be on the front, so I went to Autozone and got some bigger lights on the front, I moved the smaller ones to the back for back up lights. They do the job!! (eventually plan on putting a low pro roof rack up there and different lights, but I am working my way up there) Snow was melting so I went and found some mud, couldn't resist. The Civic is the boyfriends car, I am sure you will see a few pictures of that transforming, since I have taken a few pictures with his car and my Jeep. Then of course Spring Break decide to go up north to my cabin, and it snows!

Found out that the lights worked well to hold the Canoe up on the rack, Held up driving through a storm that hard over 50mph winds, Scary day driving through that. Hauls the Two wave runners no problem also, took it to Tennessee gas mileage stayed roughly the same(I get 15mpg, it dropped to 13/14 the whole trip)

Changed my front grille that was a little cracked(bought it that way) got 5.9 grille for $100 mint condition, painted it the color of my Jeep. Tinted on my front windows, and gave it a bath. The Chevy is my friends, Lifted with 35's, the White Jeep has a 3.5" lift, he wanted to see how tall he was compared to me. Makes me want to lift mine already!(next thing after my bumpers are done)

Nice ZJ although I'm not a fan of the tinted headlights but to each their own.

Good luck with the build, I'm interested to see what this zombie apocalypse vehicle will look like

Went to Auto Zone and made a homemade air intake, need to make a box for it so it wont get heat from the engine. Also added some Wolo Dixie Horns to the Jeep They sounded awesome, but then took the Jeep to Arkansas on vacation, the engine got really hot, warped horns now

I forgot to put this up, tinted my rear lights at the same time as putting my new headlights and HID's in. Also put a CB in the Jeep, and just started to mount the bracket and whip during the tinting process

Decided that I wanted to undercoat the Jeep, I used Hurculiner. Worked out well, messy but well worth it! Also a picture of my HID's and 100w fog lights
