So I figured I would do one of these. Nothing exciting nothing to unique just something to track my progress on.
Here's my intro: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f65/a...-intro-897805/
I have a 2002 Inferno Red Overland Edition WJ. It was built in the Spring of 02. The history of my jeep starts in Miami, Florida there it was a rental. It was then sold to an elderly couple who lived in Tampa. They put a majority of the miles on the jeep. It was then sold to an army Captain who moved up to Aberdeen, MD. He put some miles on the jeep and was anal about the maintenance the jeep had all scheduled work done and recorded during this time. The Captain then sold it and here it gets fuzzy. It bounces around dealerships in northern MD. Before it is sold at auction to a luxury car dealer in Bethesda he bought the car cheap in the auction believing it was a luxury car and handled like one. Haha he was mistaken. He had trouble selling the Jeep and it got to the point where it was taking up space on his lot. I found it thanks to the internet. He was glad for me to buy it. I got it for WAY under blue book and the dealer fixed everything that I pointed out as broken. I took it home and was pretty excited. It had 101xxx on the odometer.
Anyways the reason I decided to get a jeep was because I caught the off roading bug. My dad had let me borrow his truck which was a 2005 LE Frontier. I took it to the local ORV Park and I was hooked.
Here are some pics from the trip.
Needless to say I couldn’t get any more NOOB. Because of that trip I cracked a leaf taking the above picture. I eventually led to the failure of the alternator and u-joints because of the second picture. I know I was dumb but so was Nissan. Who puts the alternator on the very bottom of the engine!?!? Nissan does. Oh well I fixed all those parts I loved working on the truck. From that I knew I wanted a jeep. Like all young boys I wanted a Wrangler. My parents said no so I went to a Cherokee. Not enough airbags so a WJ was my next bet. I love my Jeep and wouldn’t trade it for a TJ.
So after getting my jeep I went straight to the fire roads/logging roads 15 min from me in Frederick, MD.
My first mod was head unit and speakers. I got a basic middle of the road Alpine set up with a hidden iPod hook up and I’m happy with it. After that came front seat covers and floor mats. Then roof rack cross bars, rear tow hook hitch, and tow strap.
Then came the lift at 104xxx. Here’s all the parts placed out. It’s a Zone 4in lift. I added front anit-sway bar links, KOR shock mounting kit, and a rear addco sway bar.
