1998 grand Cherokee, expedition/daily driver rig

RE: 1998 grand Cherokee, expedition/daily driver rig
I have no idea what I'm going to do with this T100 yet haha. Keep in mind it has a ton of miles on it, but the body is 100% southern rust free and it runs and drives great.
And yes I am on the lookout for a HP30 for my ZJ. My ball joints are toasted on my low pinion and now the caliper bolt threads are stripped too. Possibly a D44A from a v8 zj too for the rear.
Got a set of offset steel rims from Andy so I can ditch my wheel spacers. Also got an aurora rear license plate holder with reverse lights from nick that will get led bulbs installed in it.

Offset rims are on and look great. Need to figure out how to post photos again cause I can't figure out the imgur.
Also I finally have all of my parts for the lift.
IRO 4.5 coils front and rear
IRO 4.5" lift hydro shocks front and rear
Zone extended front sway links
JKS double shear adjustable track bars front and rear
IRO track bar bracket for the front
Freedom Offroad adjustable control arms for the rear
Core 4x4 adjustable upper and lower control arms for the front

Lift is all on!
The ball joints on this HP30 are completely trashed though, so I ordered a set of synergy ball joints to replace them. After I put those in, get an alignment done, and get my rear jks track bar loosened up and installed it should be ready to drive again.
I'll have to feel it out for a bit to see what else it needs but I think the next steps after this will be to upgrade to a heavy duty steering setup and get a locker for the front axle.
Skid plates would also be a nice addition and I'm still going back and forth on the paint.

Yeah you are the one that convinced me.
Can't beat the price.
I will have to hold off a little longer though, there's no way this rear adjustable track bar is coming loose so I will have to buy a new one.
