03 Overland Expedition Build
I just sold my 98 TJ last week and picked up a 2003 Grand Cherokee Overland v8 HO with 161577 miles on it. It has every option from the factory just about according to the build sheet, leather, heated, powered seats, wood trim, power sunroof, quadradrive, Dana 30 front with varilok, Dana 44A with varilok both geared at 3:73. It has the skid plate group, towing package, and a few other things I'm sure I'm forgetting. My plan for this rig is going to be focused more on an overland type build. Progress will be slow because I'm in college. Once I graduate I'll buy a new car and keep this as a serious rig. That's when the real mods will come. For now though I'm planning a 3" lift with JK rubicon tires and wheels, roof rack, CB radio, a winch, OBA, rock rails and maybe a few other odds and ends. I like Theksmith's GC build and will be getting lots of ideas off his build thread. Without further ado, here it is.
Today I'm installing the cassette adapter I got for it which will allow me to play my iPhone music. I will also put the cig outlet dual USB charger in so I can charge my phone as well as someone else's. I've already added a few things from my old jeep that I took out to make it more mine. Under the 40 seat I put my socket set and a pair of gloves. Under the 60 seat I have the Jack stuff, an ice scraper and the factory amp for the infinity sound system. I put a screw driver set in the center console and added a sun visor organizer to hold pens, more tools such as torx bits, razor knife a regular knife and garage door opener. I also put the first aid kit behind the from seat and the jumper cables in the rear where the netting is. I'm also putting some air fresheners in and a new air filter.
Going home for spring break so I'm about to order a few parts. All new spring isolators and a .75" spacer for the front to level it out. I measured the other day and from center of the hub to bottom of fender was 17.75". It should be 19 with the factory up country suspension so in all I expect a total of around 2" from where it currently sits

Put some brand new looking JK Moab wheels on my 03 overland. Got them installed but they didn't install the TPMS. So I took it upon myself to take the old TPMS off the old rims. Sheered 2 out of 5 in half. Used a torch to help get them out. Went to the auto store and bought one more so I have 4. Anyone know what I should pay to get 4 installed?
