***My Mall Ready Build***

First off this thread is 311WJ's fault ...

It began about a year ago when I traded in my 02 Powerstroke (Damn Fuel Prices) for a 2004 Freedom Edition WJ with 48 grand on the ticker.

The current mod list goes as follows:

4.5'' TeraFlex with Upper and Lower adjustable CA's
TeraFlex shocks
TeraFlex quick disconnects
JKS adjustable Track Bar
KOR SS
KOR secondary SS
Flowmaster 40series muffler
K&N drop in filter
Eagle Alloys 140 series 17'' wheels
Cooper STT 265/70 R17




Then 311WJ got ahold of me and asked if I was going to GSW???Since I have that weekend off and after a quick call to "The Boss" we made our plans and have started getting ready for the great weekend.

Currently on order is:

RRO Super Sliders
Matching spare Cooper STT
Rola Roof rack to mount the spare
Tail light guards (I like the look)
and CB

I know my sliders wont be here by next week but everything else should show up by next Thursday then we leave for GSW Friday morning after my graveyard shift. I look forward to meeting some of you.

12??? I can get 12 pulling the WJ IN my enclosed trailer, your truck must have been lifted. My WJ only gets about 12 avg, 14 highway. I want to go to Moab this summer, I'll see if you and 311 would like to be tour guides

CB install

Since im waiting for my CB to arrive I went ahead and installed the antenna.

Because I HATE drilling (noticeable holes) I ran the coax through the rubber grommet behind the taillight...




Then I made a bracket to mount the antenna...



Here is the bracket all mounted up...




All finished, I think it came out pretty clean



Still waiting for FedEx to deliver the CB, should be here anytime now...

Yeah more or less...My family likes to go camping and we like to camp at different spots every night so we hit old mining and logging trails and like to visit ghost towns...We use a tent that comes off the back of the WJ load it up and go...

We are saving for a Adventure Trailers Chaser...But that might be a year or so, but for now the tent works and with the addition of the roof rack we wont be so crowded on the in side...

FedEx came through

I really didnt know how hard it is to find a place to mount the CB in the WJ and still have it look clean so I mounted it in the arm rest...Fits really nice out of the way and I can shut the arm rest and still have the mic easily available...




And one with the armrest shut...

I came home from having my tires rotated and balanced before the weekend and found this sitting on my door step



After about 20min install walaa..You really cant beat the Rola Rack for price and good looks...I will be picking up my spare tire later today as well



I was tired of getting rock chips on the front of my hood and windshield so I also installed a bug flector...
