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.

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?

Finally done!
Sorry it took so long I was helping my friend on his boat...
All the Stock Setup

All the Stock Setup on the ground

Thats how dirty my old air box was

Everything removed

Airaid TV spacer


What kept me goin

Clearance Check( Piece of gum on some paper.)

Cleaned the Wheel well with Alcohol.


Final Setup




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.

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.
