Default BigClay's Project White Noise v2.0

UPDATE: Current setup starts at post #409





I have been lurking around here for a while now and I figured it was time to introduce my rig. I am calling it White Noise because I have almost 170k on it now and with time every jeep seems to begin to make its own unique “sounds” (right now my lifters are clicking), and right after I bought the jeep I put a Flowmaster on it, so I thought the name was fitting.

I bought this 1993, white, 4.slow ZJ in September 1999 with 99k on it. It was my DD and remained stock until I was out of school for a few years.

Stock


In college I bought a Tahoe, and that became my DD and the ZJ sat silent for a while. I would post more pictures below of my rig (because I am sure no one has seen a 93 ZJ on 31” tires!) but my hard drive crashed a few months ago, and I was only able to recover some of my pictures.

Finally I got the itch and it was time to start modifying the jeep in 2007. The jeep was still my secondary vehicle so I decided to keep the lift mild. Instead of a budget boost, I went with the OME 1” Heavy Duty springs and shocks. The lift netted me about 2” of lift. Before I put on the 31” Trxus M/Ts I trimmed the front plastic facia. After the trim I put on the Trxus M/Ts on 15x8 Cragger Soft 8’s.


I decided I needed some front tow point so I went with KOR’s radiator support. I also went ahead and trimmed the front plastic facia all the way around.




Well then, after all of the mods I did, some punk kid thought I needed a few other mods




And then the day after I got that fixed, he decided I needed a few other mods







Well I got everything else fixed (as best as I wanted it fixed), but I needed more room in the cargo area so I decided to get KOR’s roof mounted spare tire carrier, along with the Hi-Lift attachment. I also added a CB, and painted the front “chrome” grill flat black.


Future plans:

Well the lift bug has gotten me so I am in the process of assembling a RE 3.5” superflex kit and I am going to upgrade to all 8 adjustable arms, and I am thinking about adding 1” spacers also

KOR sliders

T-case skid

Gas tank skid

And…?

Yeah I found out who it was, it was a punk 16 year old in my neighborhood that had nothing better to do. Unless I had caught him in the act and snapped a picture there was nothing the law could do; and since he was only 16, there was nothing I could really do besides going to his parents, which I did, and they are even more worthless than the kid is.

Clay, no worries man. Karma! That little fawk will get his. I know the feeling man, im very, very protective over my rig so if that happened I would go ape sh*t and start busting heads. Kids really have no respect now-a-days, and im sorry the parents are POS as well. Scum begets scum. And who said nurture versus nature anyways? Agreed, crowbar him back or wait until he gets a car and repay the favor.

Yeah man, I am a believer in what goes around comes around, so that little biotch will get his one day, maybe not by me, but I am sure by someone someday.
