ZJ \"body lift\"
Ok, one of those "know it all guys" who works at my shop and professes to have a brand new dualie Dodge 4x4 with a v-10 and a 1973 Vette with a blown, nitroused 454 (that makes 2000hp at the crank) (despite the fact that this guy drives a 1987 olds 88 to work everyday), told me yesterday that he also has a jeep grand cherokee... a brand new one. It came with the 360, but he's pulling that out to make room for another v-10...and he started listing off all these "mods" he had already done...so I asked him, "Hey, do you have just a crappy suspension lift on it, or have you done an awesome body lift yet?" He responds that, of course he hasn't done a crappy suspension lift...he's done an 8" body lift. I of course chuckle, and return to work to ponder how exactly one would do an 8" body lift...ON A UNIBODY VEHICLE!!!!! So I simply suggested that he hook up the jeep and vette on a trailer behind the ram, and tow 'em all in to work so we can see. He said he'll do that just as soon as he can afford to buy a trailer. Just thought some might get a kick out of that. I think I'm gonna make my first million selling body lifts for Cherokees and Grand Cherokees.
(And before anyone asks...I made absolutely sure he was talking about a brand new, 4 door jeep grand cherokee--even compared it to one in the parking lot--so there was no confusion about it being one of the older, bigger cherokees or wagoneers).
Some people. Oh well, I've gotta go back and start to work on my front SOA lift design for the new Jeep Liberty.
