98 ZJ Laredo 4.Slow build

Hi all, I picked up a 98 ZJ from my friend a few weeks ago. He's installed a 3.5 inch IRO lift on it last January along with some 31 inch Pro Comp All Terrain on 15x8 Rock Crawler steel wheels.

My plans are simple but please be patient because money is a bit tight right now.

Here's what it looks like right now:



I painted the front grill black with spray on bedliner:


And a few dirty pics:

Plans are: OME Medium duty front and rear springs + 1 inch spacer, OME Nitro shocks, ARB front bumper and Safari Snorkel, 8000 lbs winch with synthetic rope, skids and sliders. After that front and rear lockers.

I've purchased some ZJ 15 inch snowflake wheel which I will be refinishing and mounting the Pro Comp tires on in the next week or so.

Started cleaning and sanding the snowflake wheels today, I'll post some pics tomorrow.

I'm in need of front turn signal lights since they're broken and some front tow hooks for now until I can afford the ARB bumper. Nothing to be found at the scrap yard today...

The painted grille looks good on your ZJ. Keep us posted with your upgrades.
