    Ok so heres the story i got my jeep about a year ago i had posted an add online about trading my fully built acura integra which made 350 whp on low boost never actually turned it up to see what it would do but anyway a guy with a 96 zj sent me an email and i wasn't looking for one but i fell in love and had to have it so the next weekend he drove down and we traded. I have since ordered a 2" BB and got a set of 31" firestone destination A/Ts

    Current specs:
    General:Cobra DX19IV CBFireStik II Four Foot CB Antenna
    Suspension and Steering: 6" coils, Ironman4x4 Front / Rear long arms, custom made steering
    Drive Train: HP44 and 9" 4.88s and lockers
    Wheels and Tires:Bling bling old school ford rims 35/12.50/15 Goodyear Wrangler MTR with Kevler
    Engine: K&N intake power aid throttle body spacer
    Clayton subframe and belly skid,
    FCZJ parts : Rad support / tow points Steering box brace
    BG Fab:Boat side / slider things haha

    Current Pic:


    first day I had it


    after doing my full switch to amsoil my trans finally let go so i ended up getting it rebuilt and as soon as i get in from getting that done my water pump goes out so all the money i had for new parts and fun stuff was spent and im back to square one!

    I took a wheeling trip to Uwharrie and noticed my fenders where getting in the way so i trimmed them up and then did a bit of beating with a BFH to make the pinch weld flat











    i went ahead and moved the charcoal canister and rolled the inner fenders in the rear so it will no longer cut into my tires when on the trails i cant wait to actually have some money and work on this thing again!!



    I ordered the IRO belly skid yesterday and should have it friday ill have install pics this weekend.

    Ok so i managed to get a good bit done today. I mounted up the IRO belly skid and aside from drilling it bolted right up although having the IRO front LA cross member would sure make this easier it does work just fine with the stock cross member just have to do a bit of drilling and fitting! I also fixed the bushing in my front sway bar it was squeeking and pissing me off. over all I feel decently accomplished for the day!




    and here are some finished pics of the fender trimming.





    and i gave her a wash and took a few nice pics of it at its current stage

    It looks like you can adjust it up another set of holes? Your t-case also looks low kinda like mine did when I found out my transmission mount was toast and letting it all hang down low. Heres a pic of my old tranny mount it was letting my tranny sag about an inch and my t-case bout an inch and a half. Disregard the other two bushings in the photo.

    i cant use those upper holes on the drivers side till i get the IRO cross member i think that will allow me to lift it up a but if not ill make my own brackets to lift it up some more and i do think one of my motor mounts could use replacing but i dont feel a thud or notice it so im leaving it alone for a rainy day when im bored and have the extra cash laying around

    I want to build some sliders that's for sure but living in the barracks prevents me from buying a welder and necessary tools. Does crawler ready have 4.0 mounts I would be interested.
