Project Big Green (Rare 5spd ZJ)

So Im starting a new build and figured I would make a thread.

Im starting with a Rare 1994 Grand Cherokee 5spd, picked it up for $500 due to something being wrong with it causing the clutch not to work. has 280K and runs like a dream and doesn't have much for leaks.

Heres what it looks like right before rolling into the garage.

Got it into the garage and up in the air ready for the tranny to be pulled.

So the plan for the build is a 6" long arm lift on 35s and maybe later a 9" on 37s if I get board. I have pretty much everything to get the build done. Upgrading the D30/D35 with a D30/D44 with 3.73s from a 97 V8 ZJ.

Scored a set of 35/12.50/15 KM2s with 70% for $450
