Default ZJ wobbly wheeler project

Well i traded off my sas ranger for a 93 HEEP zj with 170k but runs strong and never seen MI winter. It has some kind of junkyard special lift with spacers in front and some sort of springs that are collapsed at the top 3 coils and no spacers in the back. Came with a decent set of bfg 31s on it and 3 D-windows and one spray painted wagon wheel. the other options it came with is soft brakes, death wobble,misalignment, and a non working gas gauge. The Death wobble took me one step closer to figuring out that JEEP thing i could never understand

its not a bad start.. you can do a lot with zjs, just a little more difficult because of the lack of frame.

You can go as big as you want with a ZJ, being able to wheel with a few buddies in the back is nice too. I didn't build it, but this is my example of a "ZJ"

Nope 31's

But to be honest, this thing just flat out works and it is a fairly simple set up. 42's ftw.

there was a big blazer shaped object in my way... guess I should have just ran it over.

sorry for the hijack, I look forward to what you do with the ZJ. If there is anything I can help with let me know.

I keep trying to convince him to do a long arm on it, but might end up with something simple.
