The Waketek516 build (2014 Edition)

Hey Everyone! I'M BACK!!!!

Long story short - I was a pretty active member here back in '06 when I had my first Cherokee (Black '01 Sport. 2" BB on 30s).


I sold it, moved to California, build a BUNCH of cars out there (550hp '06 Mustang GT, 4Runner, FJ, Tundra), but none of them satisfied me like a Cherokee! Well... the Mustang was on another level, but that's a different kind of car...

Supercharged Mustang GT

4-Runner 4" on 33s

FJ 3" on 33s

Tundra 3" Leveling Lift on stock 33s


So I came back to NY this summer - and sold the Tundra to get into a Cherokee again!


It's bone stock, and almost identical to my last one. Black '01 Sport, 120k, Auto, NP231.







Lots planned, but not much will happen till after the holidays

HEADLIGHTS

First Mod.... The stock headlights SUCCCKKKKK (as everyone knows)...

So I picked up a cheapo set of eBaY lights with H4s. They're better than stock, but eventually I'll upgrade the harness the right way.
For now these will do...







Looks better and about 43% brighter

Some things I've noticed after having it a few weeks which will be corrected:
  • The carfax was clean, but it may have had some minor front end work. The fogs are both cracked and not working
  • The "p" in "Jeep" on the grille isn't lined up properly. Its subtle, but drives me nuts.
  • The exhaust may have been replaced/repaired at somepoint, but had too much "hanger" added in the back. The tail pipe is hanging down a good 6" below the bumper.
  • The speakers cut in and out at times, but that will be replaced with a full stereo system. I'm adding a full Double DIN nav, and will have a write up of how I pull that off.
  • The transfer case shifter rattles a bit, but the trans mount is shot. I have a new one, and just need a day to swap it out.
  • The motor mounts are shot (rubber is cracked and falling apart). I ordered a set of BrownDog mounts/brackets. Just need a day to swap them out.
