well i have noticed that some were interested in pictures of the exo caged ZJ. yes rockwells are going under it with 44s. i have three pictures i snapped last night when i got it on the ground for the first time. i havent had much time to work on it lately i have been pritty busy with other stuff.

it will sit about 3 inches lower than it does in these pictures i have not adjusted anything. also it is not close to done yet. i hated this thing but now it is unreal it will be bad ass now and capable with the front and rear steer it should help this over weight big beast get around corners.

It has a 118" inch wheel base now. the whole sub unibody has been 3/16 plated on all sides front to back then the new suspension was added on with johnny joints on both ends on each link. with 2" 1/4 wall dom uppers and 2.25" 3/8" wall lowers. detroit lockers in the diff's and full hydro steering from PSC. not to mention it has a 4 speed atlas now. the drive shafts are 1410 u joints with 1/8" wall tubes. this think should be a tank.

i think it will weigh a lot more now haha but he will be beating the hell out of this rig i can promise that. there is still a lot more to do on this considering i have been working on this rig for him on my own time to finish it and get it out on the trail.

here are a few pictures. not great pictures but you get the picture the wheel wells and a lot more still need to be finished and it will sit 3 inches lower at ride height.

Thanks Andy for your positive feedback. It is pretty big, but actually it is only about 4 inches taller than before when it was sitting on 35's.

I think the front bumper is about 40" from the ground. Which is very low for having Rocks, and 44" Bogger under there.
