Default The grand plan

Well it started out with buying a 97 limited zj for a few hundred bucks. Figured I'd drive it thought the winter and call it quits.

Well that didn't happen.

Started taking it out in the woods. I destroyed the front ring and pinion, so I decided to pick up a hp from a friend. Then that turned into a 4.5" lift, adjustable control arms, rebuilding the trac-loc in the rear end, rebuilding the trans, and swapping in an np231.

Needless to say I haven't exactly treated this in a nice way. Body damage and rust took over and it's time for repairs.


So that's how it sits at the moment.

On the line up:
Rebuild the tired 318
Full width 44/9"
3link the front
4 link the rear
37-38" tires
Cut off the rusted rockers and replace with sliders
14" coilovers or air shocks

No need for rockwells and 44s lol

Imgur is being a pain in the ass
And photofuckit is giving me a rash of shit so I'll get pictures up soon
