Post  SuicideTireZJ on Wed Feb 17, 2010 5:55 pm

I figure this would be a cool way for us all to post up pictures and stats of our junk so we know who's who cruising the streets/trails around here. Please post your rig in the following format:

Year: 1993
Model: Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ Laredo
Drivetrain: 5.2L V8, stock tranny, 231 w/ SYE, Tom Woods rear driveshaft, currently no front driveshaft (see carnage), Dana 30, 35c open/open
Suspension: ~5" of lift cobbled together over the years using parts from Pro Comp, RE, Claytons, JKS, Teraflex, and Daystar
Tires: 33x13.5x15 Super Swamper LTB
Other Notable Mods: Currie HD steering, OBA, Turbo City intake, custom front bumper, MileMarker 9000, Clayton's front and Kevin's Off Road rear trackbars
Favorite Mod: Lack of exhaust
Least Favorite Mod: Obliterated unibody, very poorly designed front bumper, dryer vent hood vents, lack of skid plates
Favorite Trail: Poison Spider
Best Carnage: Grenading a front driveshaft joint at 80 on the highway, literally ripping the old NP231 in half

Unfortunately there is no way I'll have this thing near done for Spring Break. Needless to say I am trying to see who all is going to Moab, see if I can't grab a seat.

Only in the rear, its way more stable at highway speeds and doesn't have any axle wrap when your romping it up steep stuff wheeling. Flex is about the same aswell. A lot of people look down on it, it doesn't really have huge benefits to be honest but it does take away from it.

Ya I know of one or two ZJ's that have converted to leafs as well. Seems like a lot of work to go to a more primitive suspension, but if it works, no argument from me! Plus, probably makes axle swaps a bit easier.

Thats exactly why I did it, I have a high pinion 44 in the rear with reverse cut gears and a spool, then I'm running bigger tube and axle shafts. No welding included in an axle swap lol
