    Default My ZJ Build Parts List

    So I'm down to about 30ish days until I head back to the great U.S. of A. and I'm beginning to prepare my parts list for the build up of my 1994 Grand Cherokee Limited. The Silver Sled currently has a 6 month old Jasper rebuild 5.2l V-8 mated to a 249 transfercase.

    My primary list of things to spend lots of money on include the obvious, suspension lift, rims, and tires. Being a previous YJ destroyer, I feel that I'm pretty well versed in most things Jeep. So here goes:

    Lift 4.5" unsure as of yet on short arm or long arm. But I'm leaning towards a SA kit due to lower cost. I am however sticking with a company that has an easy upgrade option (i.e. RE's superflex kit is upgradeable to a LA kit).

    I'm looking at 3 kits so far: http://www.rubiconexpress.com/Produc...=854AD55725448

    http://rustysoffroad.com/mm5/merchan...ode=sus_zj_kit

    If any of you ZJ guys have any other suggestions or companies i should look at let me know. Just keep in mind that I want to clear 32"-33" tires with very little to no trimming, easy home installation (bolt on kit), a good reputation, and the ability to upgrade easily if the mood strikes me.

    I'll also be adding some sort of rocker/slider, preferrably with a slight step for my wife and small kids. as far as rockers go, I have no idea. I fabbed my own for the YJ, but rather the ZJ had a more professional look to em. so suggestions are open there.

    I'm all about RE because of the upgrade ability. I run the RE4.5 SF for just that reason. Only another 1500 and I'll get my long arms...
