Arrow jeep zjt this is my first build That i have put on here be nice

Okay I have a 96 Grand Cherokee with a 5 inch lift so me and my buddy Eric have been seeing zj and xj that people turned into trucks .well we thought it would be cool to do because we were having skid plate problems with it rubbing up against. the fuel tank so I have some pictures showing what work we did it was not hard it. only took us 3 days 3 to 4 hours a day to complete it and it flexes good and it seems like everything works together better. and it is lighter in rear and looks cooler so here are my specs on the Jeep 5.2 v8 242 transfer case 4.11 Gears front and rear welded rear open front 32's bfg's and. I even have it heated leather seats when its cold out lol thanks for looking ps. this is not my first jeep I build I've built numerous Jeeps and. we will be starting a homemade long arm kit if you guys are interested. I will keep you posted post pictures

I personally like the miter cut tubing for the roll "bar" and the stack, gives it a real nice "retard" look to it.
