When I first got it I did what everyone does and got a BB and 31s which wasnt enough!!

I realized I needed some sliders and I didnt like anything on the market so I built these.


I then put 33s on it with the BB and a bunch of trimming. I aslo got some bumpers and a EOR cage from a buddy and slapped those on

After I grenaded the lp30 last year I decided I needed to quit dicking around and build up my HP44 and 9' I pulled from the local JY. I called Greg (pissoffflapjack) and had him cut me all the brackets with his fancy torch mate. I was extremely impressed with everything he has sent me!





I got all that done and stuck a Engo E10000s on it and took it out wheeling.

Hell yeah man! It was a hell of a project in the making, now lets see how hard you can push it hehe

Thanks for the reps on all the brackets too mang! The front was a bit of an undertaking from a couple thousand miles away

I use slugs. So far daily driving I haven't seen any issues. Make sure and keep the spindle bearings greased, joints lubed, and quality oil it the diff. slugs shouldn't be a issue. Not yet anyway.

Took the Zj out for some wheeling this weekend with some buddies and had a blast. I blew up both of my new mile marker hubs within 15' of each other lol. I made a quick run to the parts store and got them warrantied out then paid the difference for the upgraded ones hopefully these work better. The ones I blew up had 3 trips on them. I just ordered a set of Yukon chromos and a hd diff cover so more to come shortly!
