    ZJ trail rig.........

    Yeah this rig has been for sale on and off for over a year, just couldn't find a buyer for the price he wanted. Sounds like he way over paid for it 8 years ago. He is in his 70's now and will be getting cancer treatments so in his own words "You caught me at the right time I guess, it really has to go now." He lives across from the fairgrounds in Estes Park and had it set in his yard with for sale signs. He said he's had hundreds of lookie-loos come across from the fairgrounds events....to the point he disconnected the battery, put a Club lock on the steering wheel, chained the brake pedal, and installed a camera on the house to keep an eye on it.

    ZJ trail rig.........

    How do you know this rig? First thing is to get it emissions compliant. I'll be scanning craigs for part out ads for ZJ's to see if I can maybe snag a good down-pipe/cat assembly with the O2 and wiring. If not, my usual exhaust shop will get the task. Gotta find a couple more steel wheels to mount emissions rollers on...... After that, not much in the immediate future other than to clean up the dirty interior and fix little things like busted lights, window switches, missing screws in trim panels and the center console, etc. A/C line fractured so I'll get that replaced and have the A/C charged ......... if I have any hope of having my wife join me, it's gotta have functioning A/C......lol. Once I've gotten some seat time on a trail or 2, I'm sure I'll find some things I'll want to tweak. Previous owner already warned me that the rear coils like to jump ship when flexed so I'm sure some extensions to the coil retainer posts are in order. Brakes may benefit from a good bleed - first press of the pedal is soft but super firm after a 2nd press. Noted a dead spot in the steering that is pretty minor, initial check on the trailer didn't reveal much so that's another item to look into. I'm also thinking the front and rear axle tubes should get a few beads of weld to the housings and I'm not a fan of the rear bracket for the upper control arms only being welded to the tubes with no support in the center below the joints so that may be a future project. It's a jeep, they have a never ending list of to-do's.........
  6. '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 Eliminator MJ's

    Congrats on snagging this MJ..... it's a good one. I was definitely surprised the NAXJA guy and son that bought it from me let it go so quickly..... Dunno that I can forgive the fact that a......(gasp!).....Texan.....now owns it..... J/K..... I'm sure you'll enjoy that truck!
  8. Wanting to keep the tires/wheels I have as rollers to put on for winter storage (the Nokian's will likely flat-spot since they're so soft) so I had a buddy who manages a police fleet garage hook me up with 6 OEM steel wheels to mount the track tires on. Unfortunately, 3 of the 6 are tweaked and not usable or won't balance in spec so I had to hit craigslist to look for some cheapie wheels - figured if I'm gonna throw money at the wheel issue, they should be lighter and allow good heat dissipation. Found these for $230. A little blingy but they'll do the trick. Hoping to find 2 more, but they're no longer being made by the Mfg. so fingers crossed for another cheap used set. I also found a pair of front door trim pieces on Ebay so those will need scuffed and painted and new adhesive tape applied, but that will help with the appearance. (can't remove the back door trim pieces, Ford put a 1" square hole in the door under those for some damn reason....) Got the hood vent cut down so I'll need to paint that up as well and then cut the hood. Debating on if the vent should be gloss, or flat.
  9. The instrument cluster is buried in a shadow box in the daylight, hard to see/read the instruments. So, white face kit. Teaser hood vent pics. Rugged Ridge meant for a JK. Gonna find someone with a large sheet metal shear and cut the back part off.

    Um...... you're doing it wrong......

    Friggin' hilarious!
  11. "I just helped with a blend for motor on an 04 last week.I can still do one in under 2hr!" No. 1. I didn't know what a "blend for motor" was....... 2. The "I can still do one in under 2hr" part. You said you helped..... so you and the person you helped got it done in under 2hr. 3. When were we talking about blend doors? Those were the basis of my confusion.
  12. $1600 in paintwork - done. It's a 20-footer. Grill surround painted (reduces the visual size of the grill) New headlights and corners Trunk spoiler installed. Jegs packages arrived with the brakes and ignition stuff - Wife goes on a business trip soon..... I think I can squeeze those in between honey-do's...... lol.
