gave the front fascia the limited look. washed her, taped off the area with blue painters tape, and used Rustoleum High Performance Wheel spray paint, says "ideal for metal and plastic". and they didn't have krylon fusion so i went with it. looks pretty good now, hope it stays that way.

Did that bumper mod a few months back and love it! I used krylon fusion hammered silver. Came out to the color of the silver part of the grille and looks amazing! haha

Took her for a Saturday and Sunday drive.



Who says you have to have big tires to wheel?



That young man standing there is 5'11" tall as a reference.



Had a blast at the park this weekend.

No the mileage is on the cluster. I had to write down the old mileage and the new mileage.

Built a permanent winch bumper. Used all grade 8 bolts. Used 2x4 1/4 into the uni-frame w/6 bolts. 10k winch plate bolted to that with 4 bolts. Hitch bolted to 2x4 with 4 bolts. Side pieces are from a Bronco bumper braced at 4 points on either side. Brush guard welded to winch plate. Might build a lower rad guard but I'm doing an XJ rad swap soon so there it wont be there much longer. Bronco bumper free, hitch already had, winch plate 25 bucks on craigslist, brush guard already had and scrap metal left from my rock rails. So i'm into it for 40 or so bucks for hardware and such. Fender trimming will match it to the bumper soon.

Also put in a used TruSpeed I got off Craigslist. Now my speedo is dead on. Pretty cool. You can adjust it while driving.

I LIKE it!

I used the snot out of my winch this weekend, even had to use it on myself after the guy I just pulled out stopped and my stupid self drove half way into the mess and could not get enough speed to carry me over the hump at the exit lol.

Love a winch on a WJ aka grandma's grocery getter.

yea I know I have a ZJ now whenI got it belive it or not whenI went to get my key cut the dealer told me it was a WJ so that is what I used whenI put the profile here and joined I don't know if it can be moved to the ZJ forum or not or even if it is worth it now. Update on mypower steering leake, it's not the pump or hoses they are all fine, it's the power streeing gear box that's squirting fluid out, now I have to decide do I want to replace it compleatly or just redo the seals.
and while I was talking to a mechanic about it I noticed teh passenger side front door was slightly out of alignment and bent out so I opend the door and bend the frame back in the 1/4" it was pulled out then I notices a LOT of small scratches and dents, someone TRIED to pry the door open to try and unlock it! I called the police and filed a report and they said they typically do not see this type of B&E, it's usually Smash and Grab around here! they said it was good I had the club on it and nothing visable for them to steal, and I called my insurance co. they are sending out an adjuster to take a look at it and cut me a check for the repairs. so does anyone know how to fix the alarm that came with these ZJ's????
