I'll eventually have OBA on the build for the front locker, but a tank setup like this can come in handy at times.



Hmmmm...
Well let me know. I'm in the market for a tank.

Aint that the truth. ZJ's have tanked in price. Although I will say in my WJ hunt it seems more often than not they are pulling a premium right now. Or at least people selling them think they can.

WJ are an ideal frameless platform I think. Still love axle Front. V8 option. Comfy. Good start wheelbase. Cheap. No way to buy an xj over any variation grand for the prices. Youíre almost in wk money for a late model. Honestly a rebuilt trans in a zj isnít that bad, and you can get a decent rig for a decent price.

Says the guy in a Tj.

The 5.9 and early year 5.2 had 46 transmissions those are a torque rating of 6 , so they are actually pretty solid and they are nothing more than a 727 with overdrive so they are very upgradeable. You could easily swap in a performance v8I in the place if a 5.2 in a bolt in fashion or find a 5.9 and freshen it up . I'd trade a warmed up 5.9 any day of the week over a 4.0 of any kind .

I was like NO! Do not. He came around thankfully.

I do find it out that all the photos appear grainy except for the one shot showing the wood grain bezel.
Which I am betting they added. Would not find that on a Sport. Would come on a Limited or Country. But then I put one in my '00 Sport. LOL.

I think you could easily do it yourself it's not a fancy brake bent bumper .

One of the most awesome pay attention to detail builds I have seen.

The guy that is selling it now bought it from him.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/2001-Jeep-C...orig_cvip=true

I found this on Craigslist awhile back and because I was very familiar with the build I recognized it right off.

Hell half the things I did to my Jeep were ideas I stole from him. LOL.
