How I spent my day.

A few months ago, my brother's girlfriend bought a ZJ with the intention of modifying it for 4-wheeling when she sold her old Ford Focus. She finally managed to get rid of the car 2 weeks ago and the last of the parts my brother ordered with the proceeds came in yesterday. We spent the day lifting it 4.5 inches with 32s and swaybar disconnects. It looks awesome but could use some new rear control arms as the rear tires sit a bit too far forward. Here are some pics.

Parked next to my XJ (4" of lift and 31s) before the lift for perspective:





And the finished (for now) product.

Do you happen to live around La canada, Magee area I think I've seen both those rigs around there. I remember seeing a zj on Orange Grove with a new windshield tape. And I think I've seen the xj a couple of times.

I live at River and Oracle so you've probably seen mine. My brother and his girlfriend live on the East side and the window tape was on it for less than two days. I don't know when we'll be taking it out but hopefully soon!

I had a Grand Cherokee and sold it. Dumbest move I ever made! The more we look at the new ones, the more we are thinking, "it's time again to get back into a Grand!"
