Default Hello all

New to this forum and am excited to learn as much as possible about Jeep. I bought my 95 jeep zj 4.0 about a year ago and have done lots of work. I am still in the process and will be looking to you guys for advice. So far I have done this to my jeep:
* 3.5" RC lift(lower arms all around, springs for front, shocks, sway links front, i cant remember what else was in the kit)
* replaced front Track bar(I want to upgrade)
* Replaced steering with a v8 setup (moog, want to upgrade. ask about my near death experience and why I will never shop at autozone again)
* front upper C. arms (stock)
* moog poly sway body mount bushings in front and rear
* energy suspension spring isolators
* motor mounts
* engine sensors, plugs, wires, blah blah blah

Theres a lot I still have to do and I want to eventually replace the drivetrain and axles with new components and will need lots of advice on reliable parts/value. I have lots of experience with suspensions. I did my entire lift on my truck and do it all with hand tools. The MAIN REASON I am here is because my wife and I are refurbing a 1950 travel trailer and plan on towing it for a two year journey across the country using the Jeep. I dont want to buy new for my own reasons so I decided to build my ZJ. I will be reading this site like its my job so expect to see a lot more from me.

I am looking to see if this is true and if it is how can I help it so I can get the desired lift. Also I am curious about which Dana differentials I have in the front and rear. I am not entirely ignorant to mechanical terms as I have worked on cars my whole life. But I am very new to the off-road scene and would like to learn as much as I can. thank you.
tj axles will give ya U joints in the frount if ya want but a lift will not tear up your cv off roading will rip the boots an trash your cv if you have mad cash they make bullet prooff CV things i cant even afford to say the name of them an a 242 is a awesome swap for your all wheel Tcase junk yard my have to swap the inshaft but if your lucky you will find a 95 zj 318 with a 242 i found one all ready remove

What's up everyone! I just got my 2016 Grand Cherokee Limited on Friday and I love it. I went from an Audi A4 to Jeep and so far, I am very impressed! I look forward to interacting with everyone!

Hello from Vancouver, WA. New to the site. Currently have '99 (2wd), 01 and 04 WJs, plus a 1992 XJ. Over the years, I have worked on/built XJs, WJs, TJs, FSJs, Willys Wagon, Willys Pickup, and some others thrown in there.

I'm currently building the 01 WJ, and pulling the motor from the '99 for it. Both are the 4.0. The '04 is the V8 and I won;'t touch those things...

Nice to meet you all
