It’s hard to imagine why we don’t see more ZJs on the trail. These rigs make great platforms to build a wheeler out of…that is if you beef up the Unitbody properly. Alex Gertsch of Woods Cross, Utah, built this ’94 ZJ in a simple yet effective manner. A 4.0L turns an AW4 bolted to an NP231 with an Advance Adapters slip yoke eliminator. Both the Dana 30 front and Dana 44 rear turn 4.56 gears bolted to Ox Lockers outfitted with electric actuators. The suspension is a mishmash of Rubicon Express, TeraFlex, and Rough Country parts. Oh, and those bumpers were home built by Alex himself.
