Thought I'd sworn off Jeeps...... Nope.

I'm back........ With a ZJ......



'95 with 5.2 V8, auto.

-Clayton's 5" full lift kit, 4-link front/rear.
-'79 Ford king pin D60 with unknown brand mechanical locker and TNT truss
-'70-something D60 rear with factory "posi"
-241 t-case with Advance Adapters SYE
-Custom drive shafts
-315/75/16 Maxxis Bighorns
-Stock Ford wheels
-MileMarker hubs
-MileMarker winch
-ARB front bumper, custom made rear.
-Custom uni-frame connectors welded in between lower control arm brackets
-Bilstein 5100 shocks
-Chevy rear disc swap
-Custom steering with Chevy 1-ton TRE's.


Engine is a Jasper remanufactured long block with 40K on it
Trans and t-case were rebuilt 8K ago
Steering box 4 months old
Winch is essentially new, never been spooled out, still has factory cable ties on it.

It's been all over Moab by the previous owner, but there's barely any rock rash anywhere.

Runs and drives as nice as you'd expect it would if all drivetrain and lift components were new. Rides like a Cadillac. Originally built by an off road shop owner in SW Colorado somewhere. Fab work and welds are neat and tidy.

Catalytic converter was removed at some point, so I'll have to get that replaced and clear the CEL.

The ZJ itself has the usual "issues" with electrical gremlins and crappy interior quality.

Guy came down $3K from asking price - I just couldn't pass it up.

My idea of a perfect vacation is a road trip through beautiful country. To make it really fun, all that's needed is a modified vehicle, a few close friends, and some serious off-roading. Cole Quinnell - Editor, 4WOR, Dec 99
