2004 WJ Freedom Edition into DevilDog Edition

Bought my first Jeep WJ in July 2011, haven't done much to it yet but have some good plans ill post later. I love the sleek and aggressive look of the WJ. After thinking about what I wanted to do with it as a project I thought how can I make it have more Freedom in it. So with sticking with the original look of the WJ this thread is about turning my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Freedom Edition into my own work that will be the DevilDog Edition.

Enjoy and I'm open to suggestions within reason.

These pictures are of when I first picked it up in July.

hella clean! especially for a black vehicle (shows marks in reflection more than anything)

get a lift on that ASAP.
IMO, for your list of mods, you don't need a dual stabilizer.
and whaaa?? you gonna lock your turdy5? what kind of wheeling and how heavy is your foot while off roading? the 35 isn't the strongest axle that can support abuse, especially when locked. better off locking the front.

Thanks, yeah very few scratches and one stupid door ding from the last owner. Getting some tires with the lift in the winter and probably the locker too. Not sure what tires though. Wanna get a pair of all terrains since its still my DD. Leaning towards BFG AT but I loved my old Cooper Discoverer ATR's, had those on my land rover; worked great. Might have a poll in November for it

Mounted the off road lights behind the grille, only had room for the two. Like how they came out though will post better picture of the final tomorrow. Finished the wiring just in time for dark.
