    If this has the straight six motor..it is strong with lots of bottom end torque. It won't win many races but it is reliable. There are lots of upgrades available. Nice.

    Thanks, but I went with the ZJ for the 5.2 V8. Ive had 2 2.5 wranglers, and 2 4.0 XJs and wantes some V8 for more towing. Plus the 4.0 only gets +1 mpg over the 5.2 in a ZJ. I definitely would have gone with an XJ again if it were more power.

    Project is slow as funds are tight... but got some stuff acomplished. Found a jeep being parted out and scored the center console and 2 more cross bars for $20. My center consol was cracked and cover broken this one is complete. Truck bed lined the cross bars and put them up there. I intend on making a roof rack, but as I cant weld i am thinking emt conduit. Light weight, strong enough, once painted. I can make a 72X48X6 rack for under $100.

    I had a credit on amazon so I ordered a set of pod light mounts for between the hood and fender from Apoc Industries. 30$ for these seem excessive for scap bent and drilled,but then I cant do it myself. Pay day hopefully will get a couple of light pods for it (15$ on amazon).
