    Looking for a new ZJ in the next two weeks to start building/swapping into the new bigrig

    Most important:
    96-98(95 is a maybe), 5.2, great shape and low miles
    Never been "built"

    Wish list:
    black, dark green, dark blue or smoke
    No tan interior
    Kraqa to fab up my new suspension!!! 🤣

    Looking in Wyoming, eastern Montana and Colorado... and maybe Utah

    i'm cutting an entire "Kit" for a buddies ZJ to have all the same suspension (except no cantilever) and the same bumpers.

    I'm actually going to re-new most of what I have on the old one but if I were to start completely fresh that's what I would probably do

    Did you have any luck finding your new rig? I'm kind of on the verge of potentially trying something very similar.

    I have! Found this 5.9 with only 102k miles and picked it up for $1900.. now I need to use it for a daily till both of my trucks get repaired (new engine on my diesel) then the build will commence!

    Good looking rig. I've been keeping an eye out for a niner for a winter beater for a while now and everything on this side of the hill is garbage.

    Found and two more it over by Salt lake but this was the best deal. Ksl is the way to go for that area. Western slope jeeps on Craig’s list are all hammered 250k, faded and they still want $2500
