So I bought a Silver 94 ZJ Laredo 5.2. I love it. Got it for a good deal and it runs strong. Lots of little fixes here and there but it feels good to be back in a ZJ again.
I am starting this build thread just to be able to document the progression and share ideas, yet the timeline will be slow as the cash finds it's way toward the ZJ.
As for the plan, lots of people would say it would fit in the term "expedition vehicle." I don't know what the hell to call it because I'm going to make it up as I go along.
She's my daily driver and I don't rock crawl. I plan to head off the beaten path every now and then but to be honest, that's not even the point of the build. The point is that I like learning through doing and there's no better vehicle to facilitate that tinkering mentality than a Jeep in my opinion.
I frequent the junk yard and get a lot of inspiration from the things I find there. As the title eludes to It's already a mash up of it's 93-95 bones and the skin of a 96-98. Though it's a laredo I've nearly fitted all of the limited trim (not 93-95 trim). Point being, who cares what she should be called or categorized as? I'm going to enjoy the stuff out of this thing and learn something along the way.
I'm sure I'm not the only one with that mentality here so I figured, why not document a little along the way and share the experience.
I hope you guys like it but if you don't, that's fine too.
Pics and stuff to follow.
