Project Frankenstein: The Torque Monster

Project Frankenstein

I decided my last ZJ build page was really boring. Basically just pages of maintenance. I also abandoned that jeep after I bought my 'new' ZJ from the Junkyard. I paid $1000 for it. It was supposed to be non running, but as soon as I got it home I put a battery in it and it fired right up. Only 165k too.

Jeep ZJ from junkyard $1000
New Optima Red Top $170
New Wheels and Tires $700
New IROR 3.5" Lift $1250
New Full Exhaust $400
New Headlights and Grill $300
D30HP from junkyard $100
Alloy USA Tube Seals $50
D30HP 3.73 R&P $200
Yukon Diff Bearings $150
1G Chassis Saver $100
JKS Rear Adj. Track Bar $150
1G Monstaliner $150



Plans: 4.7l Stroker, Holset HX35 Turbo, 700r4, Dana 300, Ford 8.8, 4.10's

Old one (green door), new one in background





New Firestone Winterforce 265/75/15r's (31's) with American Racing Outlaw II 15x8



New 'all' black headlights



I ditched the dented fender and decided to do a quick and cheap paintjob on the hood.





Didn't really do a A1 job but it will do for now. Needs to be buffed as well.



Picked up a D30HP from the junkyard for $150 (3.55) I plan on just regearing it to a 3.73 since that's what's currently in the rear.





Artec LCA mounts



Started my custom 409 stainless exhaust. V-Band system.




CHASSIS SAVER!



Getting pretty serious.






Alloy USA tube seals, I really like these things! Also painted shafts.

Taking a short break on the lift in the rear. I'm going out of town and need to order some other parts in order it finish the lift. Here's the completed stainless crossover pipe and catalytic converter (Magnaflow High Flow). All 2.25 409 (Fittings were 304).
