96 limited build.

Finally decide to start a build of my own. Won't be alot for a while cause I'm in school and work about 10-15 hrs a week till the summer and I will have two jobs.

This is the day after I brought it home. It's a 96 with 4.0 and 226,xxx and a rebuilt tranny.

I'm getting the new front bumper cover tomorrow. Not going to put it on cause I'm doin matte black on all the cladding

Hers is part of the way thru the 2 amp 4 speakers new hu 2 10s. Didn't get any pics of the hu and speakers. Was getting frustrated with it and didn't feel like takin pics the hu is a kenwood kac248u speakers are kenwood somthin amps are a kenwood somthin I had layin around that's for speakers. Iv got a Jensen somthin for the subs I got cheap.

Here's the subs. I got the ones in the biggest box free. One dosnt work. I'm gettin a brand new pioneer from a buddy for like 25$ to fill the others place. The dynex is one I traded speakers and a capacitor for that I got free as well.

Here's the driving lights I have. I need to get a pic at night with them on. Tomorrow I'm putting my switch above the Vic.

Idk why I have this one but I'll put it up


I'm open to suggestions in what to do. Sometime I'm flushing radiator and heater core. Iv also got all parts to replace in the front. And I'm painting my rims semi gloss back. I'll get pics up ask get stuff done. Tell me what you guys think and what else should I do.

Mounted my switch for the lights above the Vic. Now I need to get the alignment or whatever on the lights set. I'll do it when it gets dark.

It's a crapy pic but there's the new lights. I need to take some pictures with a better camera. The iPads camera isn't the greatest.

Thanks. It looks good from a distance. Theres a little bit of rust liken in front of the rockers on passenger side and the bottom lip of the back hatch. And hood lip. And yours looks good too.both of them.

I decide I'm not doing anything to it for about 2 months going to do a complete audio rebuild. All of the interior will be coming out. New 0 gauge power and ground to splitters then 4 gauge to the amps. Will be getting a 12in alpine type r sub. In a custom box/amp rack a new kenwood stereo with 3 sets of preouts. I will be getting a audiopipe apms1300 mono amp for the sub. My kenwood for my speakers and my Jensen amp for 2 4in midbass speakers that will find there way to the center counsel. Will also be getting some tweeters on the same amp. Will be getting the big 3 done as well. I know it's not lifts or anything yet. That's next year. Let me know what you guys think.

Looks like ur off to a good start. I like what u did with the LEDs. Im 2K XJ from SMD by the way, just go by a different screen name on different forums. I'll be tuned in on both forums to your build, can't wait to see your system.

Thanks. This is my first vehicle. And first time doing anythin audio related. Thanks. I love the way the look. I'm ordering some really bright whites to go in the doors and under the hood. Also if I can get the passenger side footwell light working I'll get those. Or just get one for the driver side. And I am also getting tcas shifter and tans shifter lights after I get paid. I can't wait for it either. I was talking to the guy that I'm ordering it through. Bout 600 for. New stereo big 3 all 0 gauge wiring new speaker wire another amp sub custom box/amp rack and some other things. I'll get some pics up when I'm working on it. I'm also getting a 3 in budget boost lift. And some 31x10.5 in tires. Next summer I'm going 5.5 with front long arms. And when it's a offroad only rig I'll put the spacers back on and long arms in the rear
