Default 98 ZR2 sas w/xj long arm

Back in august or so I listed my zr2 for sale or trade for an xj. Bc I had ordered a full 6.5" xj long arm kit and had one of 2 things in mind. 1 trade off into an xj so i had a four door or 2 do a sas to the zr2. After talking to a few people well hey the zr2 won. I started to research out everything needed to do the swap the right way which working @ a parts store and being a rough country dealer helped a lil I found all the right combos to keep my abs and upgrade a few xj pieces without spending a fortune. So far i just started it last week though bc its been cold as hell out but we torched out all the ifs and started w welding in new coil buckets for the springs fabbing a new mount for the long arm mounting plate & got the new axle sitting under it. Now down to the nitty gritty all the steering brakes driveshafts & who knows what else we will run into to come hoping to see the trail the 2nd weekend in april but who knows pics will be up sometime tomorrow

You could always just move your axle forward a few inches too. It looks good so far though
