Smile My 93 Grand 4.0 wheeler/DD/grocery getter/F**k my old neon thread!!

So I have been Driving a beat 2003 Dodge neon for WAY too long and then got my wife a 2000 GC and put a RC 4.5'' lift and 33's on it...... Then I needed my own.

Sold the neon for $1800 and picked up a 1993 GC Limited with 4.0 and extra T-case and about 6'' short* adjustable lift (unknown brand) and a ford 8.8 rear that is 4 linked...... needs tires and has a bit of rust and needs a bit of love but I am WAY happy for the price. Still need a 33*10.5*15 BFG mudder so I have good tires.... oh and it has brand new 15'' Teflon coated rims.... Me be happy.

Only crappy thing that gets in the way is they welded the rear end..... chirp, hop, chirp hop..... lol

Took it too a friends house and played in the corn fields and a pond.... snapped the rear upper control arm/track bar mount.... had a great time "breaking" it in tho!!!

Plans are to put front & back bumpers and sliders, 4.88 gears and get this d30 out and in with a 44 and I will have a nice little toy!

And For PICS!!! covered in mud but yeah....















I'm a happy jeeper on the CHEAP!!!!!!!!!!!

If this is Long armed and built like you say, then there is nothing cheap about the way it was built.

Short arms are still fine, my ZJ is up 6" on short arms and is a monster on the trails. Just depends on how much you care about your rig, as far as mine goes...ill bounce that fker off trees, rocks, people, livestock,...whatev.
