My First Jeep
 
Alright, so about a week ago I traded up from my 2001 jetta 1.8t to my 1999 XJ 4.0 w/ 118 on the clock. I loved my jetta, it was one fast little car, but that just gets me in trouble.
Went from this http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/06/24/esatuze8.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/06/24/u2yna7yj.jpg
to this

So far I've repainted the bumper caps, removed door trim, and installed a pioneer head unit.

Plans:
Finish audio(speakers, sub)
3'' RC lift
31/10.5/15 or 16
Full exhaust w/ headers
CAI or Snorkel
Re tint
Pull carpet, spray rhino liner

I cant go to big being that its my daily, and dont want to completely kill my mpg. Let me know what you think, any website/stores to get parts? Recommended brands/shops?
Thanks

I just got banned from my jetta forum for telling a mod to stop complaining, ever since i traded my jetta away theyve been hating

T-REXJ 07-11-2013 09:20 AM

PurpleToxin1 07-11-2013 10:16 AM

Haha Thanks, Ill just drive over the mods bug. And ill forsure keep up with this as a build thread. Is it just google chrome or can you not upload pics directly from your comp?

Welcome man. Looks good. There is a company on Amazon called tuff LED. They have a lot of good reviews and good prices. They are located in Colorado so shipping should be quick.

T-REXJ 07-11-2013 11:40 AM

ive been looking at a combination between these two(not led):

http://www.amazon.com/KC-HiLiTES-735...ites+5%22x7%22

http://www.amazon.com/KC-HiLiTES-740...ange+Kit+-+740

Where do you hunt? But its funny, the trucks that creep up all quietly spook them, but the last couple of times I've gone we've taken some noise makers and they didnt mind it, it actually made them stop and see what it was. One was a 2010 silverado with flowmasters, and the other was a 6.0turbo diesel 250

T-REXJ 07-11-2013 12:54 PM

wow nice, Ive hunted outside Ruidoso, and in the Jemez but no Luck in either, went for antelope outside wagon mound, and got one
