Looks great. I would lose the wheel spacers and those tail lights, but that's just personal preferences - to each their own.

Re: SLIMS Monster WJ
that is a very nice wk grand cherokee overland i love how those look now not so much when they came out and that black paint looks ba atleast u dont have to worry about gears i was researching my axles and i screwed up in build and forgot about gears far as i know rear dana 44a with vari lock is okay to stay but front vari lock has to go i need open gears in front i screwed up bad lol this is fresh build still working out bugs needs alignment.....getting vibrations at about 50mph - and on only gone max 55 ......its needs alignment.....gotta adjust axle and set even so pitch is perfect .....then if it isnt that then its that damn vari lock in the front axle..........any sugestions any one

also thanks to all that have reviewed my jeep any imput greatly appreciated learned so much from all on the jeep garage forumn great website lots to learn tons to see saved me several times

Re: SLIMS Monster WJ
Id have pics of complete build ive been in all of the build and i personally did transfer case and i ordered every sinle thing on the jeep that isnt stock this project was tons of fun got nice scar from it

now just need to figure axle situation before i burn up an axle the front driveshaft is out for now thinking i was getting driveline vib from it but not the case the isolators currently arent in so gonna put those back in and get alignment... pitch axle .......figure what axle wise needs to be done if needed and hopefully all is well fresh lift gotta work some things out ..... i drive country roads to work driveing no faster than 40-45mph

Lookin good. Just be carefull with that D30 It won't take much abuse with the 35's. Just get some Iceland flares on it and you're done!

Well.. Maybe some lockers, and a bumper, and a rear one, and.... I have a mod problem!

Re: SLIMS Monster WJ
lol so do i .... ive been researching i screwed up i know i can keep the 44a with vari lock axle and biggest bad about that d30 is it has vari lock as well ....whats the cheapest best gear i can use on front axle??? its mostly gonna be a dd but if i wanna take for little offroad or playing in snow could i stay with stock 3.73 gears in front but open gears instead of vari locked??? i want it to beable to crawl through some deep snow in winter and and little mud during summer rock crawling isnt my thing and nor is mudbogging but snow is fun and some mud maybe a wide trail were im not going to scratch hell out of paint in trails with tree limbs and going to do bumpers and roof rack im putting a temp push bar for some offroad lights this week.....let me know about the axles and what i can do i have very little money i can do the install myself just choosing gears need help with
