Re: 1996 ZJ

Thanks for the compliments. I'm pretty happy driving it again, and it sure is less thirsty than my '06 Hemi Commander.

I just went with some off-the-shelf shocks. Just inexpensive touring shocks.

I am trying to purchase a 1998 ZJ, that was wrecked, as a parts Jeep. I need the rear axle, a headlight switch box, a power steering gear box, and a couple other little parts. I expect I could pull about $1000 worth of usable parts off the Jeep, and sell it to the junk yard for $175 or $200 when I'm done scavenging. I don't want to pay more than $300 and they are stuck on $400.

Curious question - what parts that I don't really need right now would any of you suggest I pull and squirrel away in a cabinet for later. I may pull the transfer case and transmission, but I don't know that I have anywhere to store that stuff.
