Over the next week or so, I'm going to put together my last 2 1/2 years of building and learning.
So to start, I bought my Chargold 1995 Grand Cherokee Limited off of ebay in June of 2008, with the intention of getting my hands dirty and becoming a mechanic in the process. Now, I really had no experience on cars in general - i had always been into bikes, but being 16 and buying insurance, 4 wheels suited my wallet better - so i really didn't know what exactly i was looking at. "Eh, Jeep, leather, v8, 4x4, lifted, a/c, $3000? Sure." After a bit of research, it became apparent to me that my Jeep came with this terrible back-yard redneck 3" lift slapped under it, consisting of 3" pieces of pipe welded to the top of the coil, running no isolators, some worn-out ranchos, and nothing else. However, it also became apparent that ZJ's were the single greatest godly mode of transportation bestowed upon mankind. I spent some time of Kevins, Rustys, IRO, and then in MC. So I decided I'd have to ditch everything under it and start over, buying a completely new lift, replacing all of the welded coils, all worn parts and bushings, getting my Jeep to ride better and be generally safer (and a little cooler!
). It was at this point that Goldie Lox was born, and subsequently, my bank account cursed with a constant infinite black hole to which i will forever be dumping my money.
