My XJ is back in MI, where I'm from. I have my WJ here in FL. I will be adding things to it every now and then. It's a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland edition 4.7HO. Eventually I want my WJ to be more of a expedition jeep with 33s and long arms. I will probably end up selling my XJ and putting some of the parts on to my WJ.
My homemade lift from the machine shop I worked at: 2.5in BB and on top of that, the jeep has that 1in up country lift because it's an overland. Soon after the lift I bought tires from Truck and Van for a great deal!
After offroading for a bit, I noticed my rear diff cover peal up a little bit (I need more lift!), so I bought front and rear bluetorchfab covers. They are very beefy! They are working out great so far, expect my front one leaks. It only leaks after I have driven somewhere. So its possible I didn't seal up the top portion of the cover right or a small leak from the welds. Trying to figure it out for the last few days, its not a terrible, but very noticeable after I drive somewhere and front cover is covered in new gear lube
I went to the junkyard today searching for a 1996-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee (ZJ) windshield washer bottle and found one! The swap took roughly an hour to complete. Basically, I pulled the pumps off of the WJ bottle and inserted them into the ZJ bottle “plug in and go.” The only thing missing from the ZJ bottle was a hole for the water level sensor. I felt lazy, so I Just taped it up and put it in a safe spot under the hood. The bottle was a very tight fit so I had to relocate a few vacuum hoses. The whole purpose of this swap, for those of you who don’t know, Is so that when the tire goes up into the wheel well, it won’t grab the factory bottle and rip it out.
I had my winch laying around that I wanted to add on to the WJ so after looking around for a bit on the internet I decided to buy KOR front and low bumper. It took roughly 6 weeks to get it, but it was well worth the wait!
Painted and mounted. All done! I added my chrome tow hooks on top (beauty hooks) with no intended use, just looks. Next ill be getting my LED fog lights, maybe a logo less winch cover, and a roller fairlead. Undecided if I want to get some kind of bolt lock for the winch. I but my friends say i'm just too paranoid lol.
My airbag is on as well.... So I did the dumb thing and just bought an airbag clock spring. Replacing it was a breeze with the right tools. Guess what, the light is still on . Sooooo I guess I need to go to the dealer to figure out the reason (what I should of done in the first place).
