    well i got bored so hers my rig..
    here she is in 2003.. only thing done is the wheels...

    Then we put a 2 inch bb on it and some rancho 9000's
    but a few weeks later we ended up haveing to replace all the front bushings so instead of staying stock we went ahead and put a pro-crap 3inch lift on it... (biggest regret) and we stayed with the stock tires since they were pretty new.

    Here is the first pics i took of it with the three inch on it.. its so blingy! lol that was the last time i washed it... gosh those tires r ugly!


    so anyways i wheeled with the stock tires for a while..




    yay for $11 intake!


    a few days before i got my 31's i trimmed the front bumper for clearance




    then i got my 31's.... yay! lol










    thats it for now... there are a few things i left out but nothing real big...( new tranny, trans cooler, high volume oil pump, brake controller)

    If you drove a real ZJ you wouldnt have had to have Austin and that other guy hook 2 winches up to get your tweaked unibody off that boulder. Thanks again for shooting the sand on my ZJ when you were stuck.

    ok lil update....

    i ripped the pipe from the muffler back off on a rock so now i just have a turn down

    i took out the rear sway bar

    one of the blots on my front swaybar can off when i was driving and ripped the pressed in bushing on the endlink so now i have no swaybars

    i took out the pro crap springs and put in some RE 3.5 coils and 2 inch pucks

    got kevins sliders on and used them

    went wheelin this weekend heres some pics... it was more of a trail ride and we camped out so nothing to hardcore.







    but somehow i did manage to rip my LCA mount on my axle in half
    heres a pic of it when i first noticed it....
    drove it some more on the trail and then home so its alttle bigger now..
    just about all the way off.

    (the crack is next to the weld on the right)


    ill post more tomarrow

    well he does love the penis, but has anyone else had their lower control arms crack off too? Mine did the same thing a few weeks back after beating it up pretty good. Ive pounded it back straight and rewelded but still breaks so im just gonna order a new lca bracket.
    Felt like adding this pic to your thread buddy
