I've owned this Jeep for about a year and a half now. It's a 98 Laredo 5.2, with a D30 front and D44a rear, QuadraTrac, and 44RE. This is my first vehicle, which I acquired during my junior year of high school. It has been a major learning experience and I'm very happy with how it's turned out, and with all the knowledge and skills I've gained through the experience. Everything is basically shown in this original post, but there are more photos and details of things throughout the thread. I didn't create the thread until I had already lifted the jeep, so there's a bit of a gap between stock and then. Enjoy!
Here's a list of mods I've installed so far:
3.5" lift - IRO coils in front, V8 coils in rear, IRO adjustable control arms, JKS rear track bar, RE front track bar and bracket, Doetsch Tech 8000 shocks, JKS swaybar disconnects
Steering - IRO heavy duty over the knuckle steering kit, Durango gearbox
Dana 30 - Spartan locker, Alloy USA x-joints, chromoly axle shafts, outer tube seals, Artec Industries HD LCA brackets
Bumpers/Armor - ARB Bullbar, fascia removed and metal painted in rear, IRO premium rock sliders
Tires & wheels - 285/75r16 Mickey Thompson MTZ on 16 x 8 Mickey Thompson Classic Beadlock (33s)
Sound - Kenwood stereo, Kicker speakers front and rear
Recovery - Warn VR1200, D rings front and rear, straps, mounted fire extinguisher
Miscellaneous - Fenders trimmed front and rear, floor bedlined, Surco safari roof rack, Cobra 29 LX & 4' Firestik, Anzo USA 6" LED bars, 2"x2" LED cubes, driver's seat from an '04 WJ, tinted headlights/corner lights, headliner removed, evap canister relocated, hood stripes, silver grill, maybe some other minor things
