Jeep Grand Wrangler Build
What's up guys,
Had a build thread I threw together a long time ago so I decided to re-do it.
The day I got her, 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee bought from the original owner who got it straight from the factory, 5.2L V8 with about 97,000 miles.
I never considered taking pictures of the build until I joined the forum, so there was quite a lapse in time before I started. This is her with the 3.5 inch RC lift and 2.25 inch spacers in the front on about 32's with Rubicon rims. Having a little fun!
Tires kept grabbing the lip in the fender so decided to cut those off.
This is how she sat right before I started the major upgrades
Rough Country long arm upgrade
Right out of the box
IRO 7 inch springs, DT8000 shocks, and adj rear track bar
35x12.50 Cooper Discovered STTs
Still a Dana 35 :mad:
Threw the arms in
Then the lift
7 inch on 33s
Got the 35s on and took her out to check the suspension
Got a front bumper next
Then decided to throw in the 2.25 inch spacers again
Next to an F250 on 37s
Got A-Pillar light mounts
Put those guys on along with my Lightforce 170s and 240s
Last big purchase was the Proto Fab rear bumper/tire carrier
This is how she sits now, my friends decided to call my jeep a Grand Wrangler because of the rear tire carrier and windshield mounts, so the name stuck.
Me and the girlfriend in town, I've trained her to like Jeeps and now she wants one :thumbsup:
Next big upgrade is a HP30/8.8 combo from ECGS. I'll continue updating as I buy.
Thanks for looking!
Thanks a lot. Saw you're in the Navy, did you go through Annapolis?
You're welcome. BTW, you're far from a Wrangler. No sliderz, no tube doors? :) I had that same rear bumper. Here's how I painted the area behind it.
No Boat U for me. I went to AOCS, a commissioning program and no longer exists. My other ride...it too has gone the way of the dodo bird.
Ahhh figured I would ask, I'm at the Air Force Academy so I like to hear about people's experiences when they were cadets.
Looks good. I was about to say damn, still riding on the 35 rear with 35s until I saw the last post. :laugh: I really like those A piller mounts. You make those yourself or what? I've always wanted a set.
Get those axles in there and run some 37s. Them 35s are to small now.
Awesome build bud
Subbed Ha. This thing is badass!
Did you have to do anything to the driveshafts? I am starting a similar setup. I'm about to order the RC Long arm upgrade and 7" coils. I was hoping I could run the stock driveshafts until I recover from the suspension purchases
Freaking sweet man!! Love it.
1) What percentage of tint is that on your front driver/passenger windows?
2) What did you do with your 3.5" RC lift?
