Back in April I sold my 96 ZJ, and tonight I bought a 05 WK Laredo - very happy to be back in a Jeep again.

going to pick it up tonight! hopefully..

1997 limited, black, 5.2, minor rust bubble on hatch, no engine noises or clunking, squeaking, anything which i thought was weird for a jeep

but it shifts great, plenty of get up and go, rides amazing, just needs a radio since this stock one sucks haha.

ill get pics up tonight!

plans for it are IRO 3" exhaust with flowmaster muffler and possibly a new cat, 2" BB, 31s, cragar soft 8s, smoke tails, HIDs, polish headlights so they arent yellow, new sound system with sub, LED interior lights, intake and get rid of that damn rust bubble!

anywho, so now ill have 2 jeeps, my 99 xj which is being turned into a trail rig and the pavement pounder.

btw, anyone have pics of moabs on a zj?

I replaced a steering gearbox, completing a complete overhaul of the steering system. And got the front suspension half way to stock quality. Upgrades begin tomorrow!

Got carpet burn on my chin when trying to listen for a strange click/clunk from the belt!!! Not one of my finest moments. Good thing is, I found the noise, loose battery retainer handle!!!
