Default Very small/simple build.

Ok I have a 99 XJ 4x4 sport with just under 202k on her and going strong. Going to start replacing fluids and small parts that are needed here soon. I am sure it needs tie rod ends and ball joints, Ujoints ETC...... but that stuff is relatively cheap and easy. For now I am going to bedliner all the trim, redo the headliner, 3'' Lift and 31s.





This is the lift I ordered.

Here are the 31 1050s I picked up off craigslist.


And then will come the audio. Going to keep it simple, new head unit, new pro audio speakers all around, either one 21'' incrimnator audio death penalty walled on low power or one 18'' sub up port back. I want to do a roof rack and mount my spare on the roof or maybe get some stronger hatch hydraulic actuators and mounting the spare to the hatch. That I would like the most

Off to a good start. Keep us posted on future upgrades.

Are you keeping the stock wheels?

I agree. They look great with 31's on our rigs.

I have the zone 4.5 inch lift and i love it xD i feel it should be a long arm to improve the some what stiff ride. But once you get it on a drive around a bit let me know what you think of it XD. I don't see many guys with a zone kit other then me.

I will let you know for sure. As of right now the jeep rides alright but the back end hops around.

The only mod I really want to do to the Jeep that I can't afford is the Soft top! Damn I wish those things weren't 600+
