Jeep WJ limited 2.7CRD from France :) 4" lift long arm etc...

hi everybody, I'm pleased to introduce to you my first jeep, and my first 4x4, a wj 2003 with 110000 km, it's a limited, with 2.7crd mercedes engine.

- rough country 4" lift long arm with front quick disco
- 2.5" pitman arm
- fender flares
- moab rims with 285/70r17 cooper stt
- 1.5' spacer at front and 2" spacer at rear
- porsche boxter 4 pot calipers with 328x30 mm rotors at front
- front brake hose
- adcco front and rear sway bar
- tom wood's double cardan front drive shaft
- JKS quick disco at rear
- additional teneco steering stabilizer

I have rebuild the np247 because the front output bearing was dead and I have rebuild the turbo because I'm a paranoid

now I plane to remap the ecu myself, and I also want to use a more modern turbo with 3" exhaust line to have better torque at low rpm. stock it has 163hp and 40mkg at 1800rpm, I think I can have 210hp and 50mkg at 1600 rpm with the proper mod

it may also need rock sliders and a winch

engish is not my mother language, I'm sorry

^ That's a true statement right there!

What an awesome looking WJ and the fact that you have a diesel is even cooler.
If it makes you feel any better, I just started learning French, and my French is AWFUL. Been traveling to Niger, by way of France the last couple of years. Would love to be able to hold a conversation by the next time I go.

Good luck on your build!!

I was needed a car that can be driven easaly on road and off road, that's why I have choosen the wj, and that's why there is adcco and quick disco everywhere

I have ordered air bag control modul with part number P56010488AG ( you can have other letters at the end like "D" or "F") to fix the air bag light, my stock P56036792AA is a crap and need to be replaced by P56010488AG for car with side curtains, I think without side curtains you need P56010485AG

I need to do some mod on the windshield washer fluid tank to have more room for the 33" tire, and I have seen one hose disconnected, is it for the battery?

my jeep start to run realy well, the arms lenght given by rough contry in their installation instructions are completly wrong, the drvie shaft angle angle was wrong and the front caster was 9!!!
there is other problem with this kit, I was needed to mod the rear upper arm axle braket because with hight axle flex the ball joint was in contact with the braket, so it unlock the big nut of the ball joint and you have big knock noise at rear
other problem at rear one bolt of this braket was in contact with the upper arm with hight bump first I decide to use to grind the upper arm but it was not enought now I use a countersunk screws
