    My JK Project

    Bought my 08 JK back in March and it's been a fun build up since then. I wanted to do the work myself so I didn't do anything too big, none the less I'm happy with the outcome.

    Thanks to all the JeepKings users who helped answer my questions, it gave me the confidence to try some installs I might not have otherwise done.

    Removed the soft top and found a used hard top, worked with the half doors

    I like it but I think you'll be sorry with that Air Raid intake if you see any water!! Ask me how I know.

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

    Sugar - I actually really like the Zone lift. I was expecting the worst from stuff I had read and am pleasantly surprised. I do think I will need a .50-.75" spacer set for the front as it doesn't level it out the way I would like but the ride quality is great and after adjusting the drag link and centering the steering wheel all is well. The instructions were pretty good to, if it hadn't of been for all the seized bolts it wouldn't have only taken about 4-5 hours. I was expecting it to be a little rolly in the corners but it's not at all and I would say it's almost as smooth on the road and through potholes/ washboard road sections as stock. I know ther's lots better kits out there, but for the money, I'd say ya can't beat the results.
