My hunting rig build! ((56K Instant DEATH))
Been having fun the last couple days with getting my rig hunting trail ready!
Still a bit of work left to go, but its coming along!
The lift is from Iron Rock Offroad and is the 7" Critical path long arm.

Here are the pix for you to enjoy!

And these are the rims I am going to put on, mounting 305/70/R16 Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ!

A lot of work and expense for sure! How much will your ground clearance increase at the front and rear bell housings?

captain2k_ca 10-19-2009 10:18 PM

I wont know that until I put the new tires on.

Well I always wondered that myself.
We lift the body all to H3ll and gone and the differentials determine how deep in the mud we can go.. But it do look neat:D

Cant doa body lift on a ZJ. Unibody. I could add spacers to the springs for a bit more height if I really wanted...but its pretty high!!

With tires on...just need to get some better pix in the daylight!!

My steering components arent here yet tho :(

Coming along nicely!

captain2k_ca 10-26-2009 11:59 PM

New steering!

Finished project!
