The exhaust makes a lot of it less noticeable but I can still hear the damn noises haha.

I plan on doing more, more KC HiLites, steel bumpers (front with a brush guard and back), fender flares, wheel spacers, exhaust tip, winch, HIDs, New foglight/headlight lenses, air lockers, LEDs in the cabin, Rocker guards/steps, possibly new rims, subs. Lol I've still got quite a bit to do.

Hahaha yup you deffinitly still got a couple of things. I was unaware how much you wanted to build up this zj. You could knock out two in one and get some rims with backspacing so you dont have to put in wheel spacers. Im not sure if backspacing still gives you axle rap though like wheel spacers can. Maybe someone a little more knowledgeable will help with that one

Well I got the 1.5" Wheel spacers on and they look great! I'm not sure if i should post pics or not, they don't do much justice! Also need to stop being lazy and replace my sway bar bushings that I picked up. I replaced my wheel bearing hub yesterday, that surprisingly went smoothly. Still have a few repairs to make but she's definitely getting there!

You dont need a Tcase drop on ZJ's. Its not necessary. Esp. not at 4"

I found a badass set of TJ Moabs that look sharp in my opinion

Sorry my fault. Ive really only had enough time to learn about xj's like mine. Probably should just stick to giving my opinions on looks haha
