Looks good dude...man i love zj's. My first vehicle was a ZJ exactly like yours was when it was stock, unfortunately when we moved it was sold and i got something else, finally ended up with my YJ. ZJ's always have a spot in my heart though lol

So I went fishing with my friend today and we happened to stumble upon a marked road on my gps that was not gated or had boulders on it or anything and went exploring.
