Gmp211's Build Thread
 
So I know how I love pictures in threads and the Jeeps in them. I decided to make my own.

First off, I got her (02 WJ Laredo) around my birthday in February from an auto auction. The Lady who sold it used it to commute but was very clean with it. Its in great shape and I keep it that way.

Alright, now the good stuff. Its loaded with heated seats, sunroof, the works. But as of now, stock.

Here are some pics of her bone stock in my driveway.

Some future add-ons include a 2" lift and Magnaflow full exhaust.

On the way right now I have a K&N FIPK, Airaid TB Spacer, & Westin Bull Bar.

:cheers2:

Well, I told my mom that the shocks needed to be replaced (which they do) so it made sense to get all new stuff. But I'm not getting a BB, Im getting springs and shocks with an SS and adding on to that as I go w/ CA's, Track Bars, and that sorta thing.

Im actually contemplating putting a system in it, but don't want a huge sub box in the back. Any idea?

I've only driven about 10 miles but noticed an increase in power and torque, and +3 MPG so far(I'm at 16 now :)). The most impressive thing was the increase in response.

Ordered a Pacesetter TFX kat-back kit with some KC HiLites 120w fogs.

Can't wait to get my Safari bar and install it!

mudking_ky87 06-28-2009 01:23 AM

sounds like you get what you are needing, need a locker and some 33's haha

gmp211 06-28-2009 04:13 PM

I'm actually think about getting some air lockers. Not anytime soon though.

The exhaust, and my new Hi Lift will be here tomorrow :2thumbsup:

Oh and btw, RC Nitro 900 shocks and BDS 2" springs shoud be on their way!


CANT WAIT!

GraKee99 06-28-2009 06:01 PM

What are you hi lifting from?

gmp211 06-28-2009 08:02 PM

I got the Hi Lift for a good deal. And mainly to winch out buddys too.

But I plan on getting tow hooks or clevis mounts within the next month.

gmp211 07-01-2009 10:28 PM

Yeah, so today is was like Christmas for me :)
