Well I found this ZJ a few hours away from me for $800 with a burned up tranny. All of the fluids were very well kept care of and it's 99% rust free! I couldn't say no to that living in MN! So I got it home on a trailer, and I brought it to work where a buddy and I put a new tranny and radiator in it! Runs and drives very well!

Specs:

94 ZJ
5.2L with 170k
46RH tranny with 140k
249 t-case
LP dana 30
Dana 35

Plans are a 3.5" rustys lift with some 32's and many other mods soon to come!

Here is how it sat a few weeks ago, when i bought it.

After a few weeks of owning it I've tinted the tail lights, painted the wheels, and cleaned the interior! The interior came out spotless!

Fixed that for you. Also, I thought V8 ZJs had Dana 44a's?

Last night I pulled the headlights and restored them, I also bought some new Sylvania Silverstar bulbs! I'd have to say it's double the light of what I did have! I'll have to post pictures tonight!

242's are decent cases. Still considered an upgrade over the 249's

In fact I'm gonna swap out my 231 on my 5 speed in favor for a 242

Not 100% sure, it's a stock Dana 44 with 3.73 gears from a 96 ZJ
