ZJ flex!!!

I would like to see what kind of flex a ZJ can handle.

I measured mine the other day, it was pitiful, we used a fork lift and I only got a rear tire off the ground 30" While front disco'd (still have rear swaybar in)

please include whether the picture is with the swaybar disco'd, and if you have a rear sway bar.

You can see how much my rear tire is stuffed in this picture. Both swaybars still connected.

That's a scary amount of body lean for not a lot of flex. Most of the longarm kits get at least that much without all the body lean.

I think it got deleted because this is an XJ and not a ZJ.

89Jeeper,

nice XJ. What's going on with your posts?


You do know this is a ZJ requested thread. Just in case no body sent you the memo. Yep, sometimes I'm left out of the loop as well. That intake looks crazy.
