    Hey guys I'm From northern NV, and I have a zj with too many mods to list. I do mostly rock crawling with it and avoid mud like the plague. Found the forum from a link on tacomaworld as I have a 14' taco for my daily. Glad I found a jeepforum i might hang around on.

    Thanks! I probably spend way too much time on tacomaworld finding new mods for my truck.

    I just drop in to TW to harass some of the Montana Taco group. I am a pure Jeep guy so just an honorary member over there after trail guiding a couple of their outings. lol

    Hi Paul! New myself and also think this is a forum I might hang around on. Would like to hear more about your zj. I just picked a zj up for my twins who just turned 16. Untouched with 100k miles and they are ready to make it more Montana friendly! Welcome

    There's tons of cool stuff you can do with them! I picked a ZJ for my build to be different from the masses with Wranglers or old yota pickups. What do you mean by
    Montana friendly? Hanging out in the mountains? Driving on snow covered streets? I built mine for rock crawling so I went with a long arm lift and 35's with the option to go to bigger tires in the future. There's a ton of aftermarket support for these rigs, but they are also susceptible to problems due to their age so it's best to be handy with a wrench. Lockers are a must have in my opinion, but your twins may not need that much capability. I'm assuming the ZJ will be their daily? If so i'd recommend selectable lockers like ARB air lockers.
