My 5.9L Grand Cherokee (ZJ) Build - Lift, MT's, etc.

Originally I bought this with the plans to keep it stock. Here's when I bought it, outside of Gettysburg, PA 12/3/12:


At "Ringing Rocks" here in PA:


Sank it in the NJ Pine Barrens on 2/19/13:




Trans sucked in water. Removed it, put in a new trans & t-case WITH a vent tube on 3/24/13:








My buddy Facebooked me asking if I wanted to install a lift on my ZJ. This is his MJ btw:


We verified 1" lift would be fine, so that was the plan. I went over to his garage and we started work on the lift 9/8/13:




Stock front springs, "new" springs:


Front finished:


Fab work:


Rear finished:


Lift kit finished (New tires on the way this week, need new shocks and rear adjustable track bar as well). What was supposed to be a 1" lift and only an hour or two of work, ended up as a 4.5" lift and 10 hours of work:


Today (10/19/13) we did the 32x10.10x16" Mickey Thompson MTZ's, Tomken Rocker Guards, FourXDoctor Diff Guard:













Rausch Creek Off-Road Park Soon!
