Crawford's 97 ZJ Build

Since everyone has a build thread, I figured I might as well join the club. Plus it's an excellent way to back up pictures incase of hard drive failure. Anyways I plan to do quite a bit to this jeep so stay tuned. I'll upload pics in a bit.

I was going to do a whole write up and review of my new Alloy USA HD D30 Balljoints, but they suck. I will never buy an Alloy USA product again. Nothing but junk. I didn't even bother to take pictures. Sooner or later I'm going to replace them with a quality ball joint, moog. But I did buy the Rugged Ridge HD Tie Rod set up. I'm actually quite happy with that product. Might post pictures tomorrow. As of right now I am working on painting and Monstalining the floor.
