Hey guys,
decided to start a thread about my zj, so i can keep track of my own work lol

i've been having this rig since september 2009,
257050km on the clock today.

mods at this point are:
98 ZG 318 limited: np 231 swap, trussed dana 30 hp swap, aussie locker in the back, shift kit, optima red, 170lbs reduction, 5.9 vents, grille and exhaust tip, kn air filter, air ram, 1.7 HS RRs, SCT 93 oct tune, magnaflow muffler 12255, magnaflow hi-flo cat, high profile spectre air hat, 2x52mm tb, 5.9 efan swap, ngk fr5-1 plugs, mopar perf wires, brass cap and rotor, maxxperf coil, iat relocation, roof lights, back up lights attached to the recall bar, pirelli scorpions on masitaly 16x7 rims ET=0, ome HD coils +2", rubicon express +2"shocks, skyjacker ss, rubic exp adjustable front arms, jks rear+procomp front trackbar, prothane engine n tranny mounts, prothane sway bars bushings, drilled n slotted rotors, aeronautical front brake lines, purple led into front grill, hella h4s 100/55w, osarm h3s 55w.

what i did in the last few days:
-fron and rear diff oil change,

i now need to take care of the fron pinion seal beacause it's leaking again...
i also need to fix some electrical issues, like the rear wiper not working and so on.

i also have a 360 to put in (in the pics below you'll se a deep slate niner which is for parts due to some burocratic issue)

How the heck are you able to use the fr5-1 plugs with the SCT without pinging? I just pulled them out of mine because I couldn't run them with the 91 octane tune.

I'm running NGK BKR6E plugs on my niner. Seem to work way better than the OEM spec. Champion copper plugs. Can't remember how I gapped them, need to check.

I'm pretty sure she has separate flags on both hands, flags are just twisted around.

little more progress,
had to polish the hood due to super funny joke, a friend of mine decided it would have been fun to glue a chess piece in the middle of my hood...so i had to buy a specific product to remove the glue, and took the chance to bring the car to a friend of mine and let him polish all the hood.

Hopefully he did the whole ZJ. Very nice shine.
A buffer and some knowledge goes a long way. I always fear cutting into the paint.
Stay away from edges and even the edge of the buffer wheel edge. And you SHOULD be fine.
My hood the clear is starting to flake off.
But that's a common problem with jeeps or should I say Chrysler of that era.
My 89 dodge van 's hood is the same.
Love that wet look.
