Thanks!

I went with red harnesses as a tribute to the red interior of my old ZJ.

Went wheeling all day Saturday and the seats and harnesses made all the difference in the world. I can't believe I am just now getting them. It makes for a much more enjoyable ride.

Not bouncing or sliding around, and not having to fight to stay in the deat when off-camber. As far as day to day, I think it would be a PITA getting in and out every day, but my rig is a 90% trail rig.

Went and wheeled Potts Mountain, VA a couple days ago. About 6" of snow on the ground and some fun wheeling!!

Nice line, I was shocked how easily you made it up that last section. You hit the throttle at just the right time.

Thanks. An XJ went right before me (the only person on the trail in front of me, and you can see how much he tore it up) and it took him about 20 minutes to get up that last section. After seeing him struggle, I knew I needed to keep constant throttle, and then hammer down right at the top once I started sliding.

I watch the video and I am amazed how much my hands turn the wheel... when you are in the moment, you just react and don't think about it... I was sawing that thing haha.

Nice, I wondered how many rigs had gone up before, it looked like several due to how much the snow was kicked up.

Well the ZJ is going to a new home today. I am extremely sad to see it go, but all good things come to an end. One day I will be back in a trail rig, but for now I am going to have to ride "winch b*tch" in my buddies rigs if I get the chance to go.

Awesome thread and build!! I am going to do a 44 swap in my 5.9 and was wondering... Is it as simple as welding the new brackets, coil buckets, etc on and bolting it in or did you have to rotate the knuckles any? I saw your iro steering worked which was another concern of mine. Any advice? Thanks in advance!!

Thanks.

I did not have to rotate the knuckles, and the iro steering worked great.

Thanks! I also was wondering what did you do for your brackets on that? Is there a kit you used? Coil buckets, arm mounts, etc.
