01' Pearl Build Thread.

I figured it's about time I make a build thread, so I'm going to cram everything I've done so far in a couple posts tonight. This is what she looked like when I got her. It has a 2in. BB and some kind of roof rack? Since I got it I've done a complete service and tune up.
Future upgrades include: RC lift, JCR stage 3 rock sliders, moabs, hunter bull bar, Fawkeys relocation and recovery package, and 32" Kevlars.

I got my audio all wired up, this setup cost me a whole $5. I have an alpine deck, 2 Kicker 10" cvt, Pyle amp, and this box I bought off someone for $5 on CL and touched up with some camo tape.

I got my bull bar, moabs, decals, and the rest of my lights wired up. I really need to get the relocation package, my approach angle is horrible, especially with my license plate down there. With this bull bar you have to take off the stock license plate mount for it to fit, I might just end up zip tying it to the grill.

This is what the auto zone lights look like, for being $30 a pair there not bad.

On a side note, if your car is this small don't park like a ******. When I came out to get in the jeep he was within 6in of it, so needless to say I waited for him to come out and gave him a piece of my mind and he tried to lecture me about how driving a jeep is killing our environment.

That's when diesels come in handy, you can get in front of them and choke them with the black smoke!

I decided to test my painting skills on this lighter thing I found while wheeling the other day, I think it turned out pretty good. It'll probably never really apply to the jeep, but oh well.

I changed rotors and parking shoes on the jeep yesterday (sorry no pics) and now it don't shake when I brake, considering the tire shop told me that the rotors weren't warped. But I still have a squeak from my front left tire, my wire bracket that's on the front of the caliper has been rubbing on my rotor so I bent that back but no results, and also my pad that's on the back side of the rotor is wearing uneven. Anyone know if that's what could be causing that squeak, because it is only when I brake? Any input would be much appreciated, I hate squeaks. Also my pads are still at like 80% and are not touching squeak indicators

Looking good. I like the Moab wheels. I had a set, but my wife didn't like them. I think they look really good on a white grand.
