Re: ejschultz Build Log

You need to cover that ugly wood trim with some black carbon fiber, you could always snap on some old wrangler wheels(they fit right?) and plasti-dip/spray paint em black?

, still your jeep is pretty BA, def with that sound system!

Re: ejschultz Build Log

If I went with Wrangler wheels, I'd like to pick up a set of TJ Rubicon wheels. I really like the way they look and they'd fit. As far as the wood trim, I kinda like the darker wood trim. It looks infinitely better than the light wood the Laredos had. Also, I'm not at all a fan of carbon fiber. It looks "ricer-ish" to me. Lastly, thanks. "BA" is mostly what I'm aiming for... lol.

Re: ejschultz Build Log

I had my Magnaflow high flow cat (23226) installed yesterday as well as a new Magnaflow muffler (11225). I'm definitely liking the sound and it seems to be idling better. I also had to replace my downstream O2 sensor at that time because the shop stretched the threads while taking it out. They only had Bosche O2s. I ended up getting a NTK O2 (they OEM the Mopar O2s) from Advance. I'll crawl under there in the next couple days when it stops raining here to get a picture to put up here so you guys can see the new setup.

Re: ejschultz Build Log

Well, I traded my Type R 15 to my brother in law for his, my old, Type X 10 back. I decided to put it into a sealed box rather than the large ported box it was originally in. It's nice having some cargo space, and when I need to take it out, it'll be a lot quicker, too. I'm running it in .7 cubes gross sealed which is .05 cubes larger than the Alpine recommended specs. Also, don't mind my crooked "amp rack." That'll get fixed in the spring time. I don't feel like freezing my ass off just to make that straight.

Re: ejschultz Build Log

I swapped all 4 coils to IRO 3.5" lift coils, put in a full set of IRO fixed control arms, adjustable trackbars, JKS quicker discos, JKS barpin eliminators, Rough Country Nitro 9000 shocks, a Tenneco steering stabilizer, and i swapped those pita front upper control arm bushings that are pressed into the axle. It rides a lot better than my BB, but it needs an alignment for sure. I also had it up to 60 mph after the install on the highway and I did not experience any DW. I am somewhat disappointed in JKS though. They don't supply the Nylock nuts needed to install the disco retainers on the front skid plate. So, I have discos installed that I can't use because I have nowhere to fix them to for now.

Pics to come later. For now, picture a black ZJ with a 3.5" lift covered in snow and salt.

Re: ejschultz Build Log

Stock I was sitting at 31 3/4" front and rear from the ground to the fender. With my BB, I was at 33 1/2" front and rear. Now, I'm just under 36" in the front and about 36 1/2" in the back. I need some bigger tires now... Maybe some 265/70/16s (31x10.5x16s)?

Here's a picture of it:

Re: ejschultz Build Log

I shot this pic through my rain soaked front window yesterday. I thought it looked kinda cool.

Nice ZJ, I love the TSI ZJ and those wheels! TSIs are rare too. Nice build. I love the Generals too!

Thanks. I like having a ZJ that you don't see everywhere.
