back problems necessitated parting ways with the TJ, getting myself in and out was becoming uncomfortable and getting my toddler in her carseat was downright brutal. I spent about 28 hours jeepless until i was able to find this cherry 94 ZJ. Every power/convenience option available for that year. Only options not part of original build are leather (yay!, cause it sux in summer), factory fogs (likely going to add my own anyway), & factory towing pkg (i never tow anything) and factory skids (already obtained the OEM gastank skid) so i get the 1 component that i want from those 2 options without an extra 250lbs of junk i dont want. Im really enjoying the heated mirrors & heated seats, and even got to use the power sunroof on a nice day early in November.

Im going to stay very mild on the build and limit myself to 1" budget boost (spacer lift) and 31x10.50 Goodyear Wrangler Authority tires for a modest gain of 1.25" under the pumpkins and 2.25" everywhere else. This will still allow me a much easier entry/exit than with my former TJ, but retain similar trail performance. Im really happy about keeping the solid axle with coils front and rear as this is my 5th jeep vehicle (along with previously owning toyota & datsun 4x4's and a dodge ramcharger) and i truly feel that the TJ & ZJ's coil sprung solid axles puts them ahead of even the XJ which i feel was the best-suspensioned 4x4 available before 1993.

The only other potential upgrade would be steel front and rear bumpers to give me better approach/departure angles while being stronger than oem, but my cheapskate self is more likely to just take a sawzall and trim the unnecessary plastic from the bottom of the factory covers lol .
