Default BleepinJeep's Zombie Jeep Build Thread

Ok here it is. I waited until I was finished because I knew I wouldn't have the patience to keep this updated frequently. Anyway, I figured it was time to put a build thread/ photo thread / video thread (if it will let me), out there for those who are not familiar with my videos and YT channel.

This is the Zombie Jeep and was built as a doomsday preppers survival vehicle for the zombie apocalypse. Or I guess it would be a good overlander as well.

I have made a video for just about every modification that I've done on this thing from bone stock to as it sits. So I'll put some photos and videos here or maybe just the YT playlist which is just a list/compliation of all the YT vids of the build in one YT frame... will this forum let me embed that??

It is a 1990 Jeep Cherokee XJ with 3.5" of lift, 31" tires, a Dana 44 XJ rear axle, a 32 gallon gas tank, a 1200W inverter, a custom relay and fuse box, JCR sliders - 1/4 panel - and rear bumper, a heavily customized ARB front bumper, Dual batteries, rancho shocks, a hood snorkel, upgraded brake booster, LED's all around, custom cargo divider and shelf, viair onboard air, riot/zombie protection all around, and I'm sure a bunch of other things I'm missing.

Some of the Sponsors are JcrOffroad, Wurton, Viair, Rough Country, Sunset Metal Fab, and Applical.

Here are some more pics:

I ran into your youtube site a couple times. Never ran across the muffler bearings though, I have been searching for a write up!

Hey! Good to see you on CF!

Big fan of your videos.

Now that you have your Zombie Jeep here, you should join the Zombie Response Group. The link is in my signature.
