Ive had my jeep since may of 09 for my first jeep . i knew i wanted a 4x4 and i always loved jeeps so my dad told my to get a Wrangler but i decided i wanted to be different from everyone else and started looking for grand cherokee's in the 99-04 range which is a WJ :).... soon enough i found my jeep with 108xxx miles with the I6 engine

ok so now for the small mods i did to keep me busy until i got some cash

blacked out tail light (seriously)
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...016_medium.jpg
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...017_medium.jpg
i tried to put a clear coat on the tail lights to make them shine better but i messed them up and they got all foggy so i had to order a new set of tail lights and i re tinted them lighter
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...020_medium.jpg
got my front windows tinted 20%
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...010_medium.jpg
i hated the stock radio because it had a cassette player so i picked up this alpine head unit
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...011_medium.jpg
my ipod nano perfectly fits in that little box below the air controls
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...012_medium.jpg
my brother gave me his old subs..for awhile i had them hooked up to my rear door speakers with no amp since all my stock door speakers were blown

heres where i installed my amp and capacitor later on

http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...121_medium.jpg


my jeep came with pin stripping on it and i hated it because it looked so girly so one day i borrowed my moms hair dryer, heated up the stripes and peeled them away heres some pics

i wanted to make my jeep look more like a "jeep" so i decided to put two lights on my roof rack.. so i found out i looked like a bunny :peaking:
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...039_medium.jpg
also smoked out my front turn signals

i wanted to see what my jeep would look like with a black grille so i just took the chrome one off
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...056_medium.jpg
soon after i painted it
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...057_medium.jpg
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...058_medium.jpg
made a piece together air intake ..only had it on for a week then i put it on my buddies civic :p
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...037_medium.jpg
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...038_medium.jpg
a long time after selling that intake i made my own out of 3" PVC and a real K&N air filter
i also added a heat shield which i made out of sheet metal and sprayed with high heat paint

http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...0100_large.jpg

http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...101_medium.jpg
i wanted to add a little new car style to my jeep so i got some led fog lights
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...174_medium.jpg
i loved the way they looked esp. at night time

wow looks good

JerzeyBoyWJ 01-26-2011 09:48 AM

since im trying to put my build thread in order of how everything happened im starting to find out its pretty hard haha. But after i got the lift on i started doing more trail riding and i got a cb radio and 2 foot firestik antenna .. i soon realized that a 2 foot was too short sooo later on i ordered a 4 foot firestik firefly
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...0515001613.jpg

http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...0515001806.jpg
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...0515001807.jpg
here is my first cb radio
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...233_medium.jpg
i liked where i mounted it because the mic was in a easy reach spot
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...236_medium.jpg
then a long time after i broke my first cb trying to mod a RF gain on it so i ordered a midland 5001Z which is basically a cobra 25
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...103111538a.jpg
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...103111539a.jpg
i had the 4 foot antenna way before i got the midland this is just the only picture i have of it ( dont mind the tail light guards they come in the build later :shhh: )

Must say I think it looks great. I live in jersey too and see so many stock wjs with blacked out tailamps and subs in the back so when I first started reading I thought it was gonna be another one of those.:laugh: But after the lift and rims along with the lights, it made a complete 180 and is a great looking wj. I have the same cb as you, my only question is that is it comfortable to have it in that location, I can upload a picture of where I put mine if you are thinking of moving it.

JerzeyBoyWJ 01-26-2011 09:57 AM
