im trying to get less vehicles so i can tear down my shed and build a real shop so i can actually build stuff. ill more than likely end up keeping it for a while because of all the $$ ive dropped into it. jeeps havent been selling very good up here lately and most people have just been parting their junk out so that might have to be an option. i like the look of the rangers, and i assume they ride fairly smoothy being TTB? thats the other grip i have with the mj, just havent gotten quality shocks. been looking at fox 2.0, rebuildable and tunable.
i sorta cheated. bought this one with a RE long arm lift, 4.10's and 35" with the 97 swap. drove 5 1/2 hrs to look at it, was stoked because i didnt want to finish the one i had started. after about a week i started realizing how scabbed together it is, expanda foam EVERYWHERE and wiring harness is hacked. but yes it has the 97+ header panel/doors, interior, they tried bondoing the 96- fenders to match the contour but failed, i have 3 sets of 97+ front ends tho lol. the motor is a 99 zj block, and they had it scabbed together with one xj bracket and one tj bracket, had brown dog offroad make their 3rd custom set for this odd application to get it sitting in there solid.
it now has:
ARB front, 4.88 chromos in a rubi 44
detroit full case with same gears and chromos in the rear 44
SYE and terra 2 low
RK 3 link with bilstein shocks
throttle body spacer
home brewed rocker guards
JEEP= Just Empty Every Pocket
this is when it was on 35s next to my other one on 31s
thats it for the pictures lol
