    After the second POS 42 re I got sick of spending money on transmissions and did what any insane man would do. I swapped in a 5 speed manual in this space.

    At this point one would say hey it's workin not bad lets wheel and so for a time all was good.

    This is also the time Master Tugger dubbed the ZJ the RED SNAPPER.

    We took on water thanks in part to a cursed radiator support who claimed not one but three ZJ's to date.

    As some have noticed the snapper`s collectable parts are littering the for sale section of JK right now. Is it over has the end come?

    P.S. The Snapper's stock dual horn setup is now available. A unique sound to say the least.

    Don't say I didn't warn you! I told you that before you bought it that it was cursed and hoped you would have better luck with it!

    So after enough coffee to thread a sewing machine while it's running and some A.D.D. we came up with this.
