2001 Laredo Build- braddf

Hey my names brad and this is my build thread
The Story
I got the jeep this summer from a woman that goes to my church. I gave her 4250 for it and that was it. She came from up north so there is no shortage of rust underneath it but other than that its fine. I got it with 88,000 on it and now currently have 93000.
Stats
2001
Laredo
4.0
Leather
Stock (currently)
235/65/17 on stock wheels


Keep patient with me guys, the mods will come but they will come slowly
And I can only upload pictures from my phone. All the ones from my actual camera are too big of files so i only have one for now

Things I've done so far is:
New water pump
New oil pump
New Pioneer HU and speakers

When I got it:

Very nice.....but those wheels have got to go. Maybe its just me but I dont know what Jeep were thinking when they designed those ones. IMO the worst ones they ever put on the WJ. Hopefully you will be changing them as part of your build! Jeep looks good though and a good colour too.

I think those would look excellent actually . I like the black and chrome color. And they look tough, which is what u need on a jeep lol
