Project Jeep-A; '02 Grand...

HI all!!! Ive been here for a while and never made a build thread, so I figured that I would do a build thread to let you all know what I have going on with my Jeep. Im just doing a few posts to show the progress.



So, It started as a 2002 with a 4.7L, and every option except Leather, Heated Seats, Sunroof, and Adj. Petals. Its got the Selec-Trac 4X4 transfer Case. I bought it from a good friend that ordered it new from the factory.


First Mod was a Old Man Emu 2.5 Lift kit; Using Nitro Charged Shocks, and new springs. After a little while I also added spacers to give it just a little bit more. Then Came the bigger tires. I run 32 tires on JK 17 rims.
Then I realized I need to make it ride and sound better. I added the 1 addco sway bars, and a throttle body spacer.

That wasnt enough, so I put on a Gibson exhaust, and a K&N cold air intake. The only problem was that the Cold air intake wouldnt fit with the spacer, so I ditched the spacer and added a Super-Chips Tuner.
MUCH BETTER!!!!
Next was some minor Cosmetic things I changed the Grill from chrome to Black and painted the insert body color.


Then Came Black bumper paint, and Projector headlights with 8000K HIDs

Then maintenance things, replaced the leaking High Pressure PS hose, Replaced the seat bracket with a non broken one, and did a whole overhaul of the brakes. UPDATE: Changed to Heated leather seats and replaced the Radiator.

After those I did some minor changes and touch-ups. I received my rock sliders from JCR, and had them Powercoated. Installed a roof rack/High Lift Jack, and added LED Rock lights.

Next was the Audio system…

I Made a Ported box and added 2 10” JL Audio W3v2 Subs, and a JL 500x1 amp to power them; Added MB Quarts tweeters to replace the stocks. Put MTX elite 6.5” components in the front doors, and 6.5 without components in the rear. Added “FatMat” to the doors and trunk; including the tailgate. Then came the toys…. I made a custom Bezel for an AVIC-F90, and my deck fried so I had to swap in a F700 out of another car.

Then Came the fun stuff!! I bought an ARB Bull bar, and PIAA fog lights to put on it that I connected to the factory Fog Light switch.

Added a Viair Constant duty 200Psi OBA kit, since I wheeled with people that didn’t have a way of airing back up, and I needed to!
It’s messy at this stage, but not 100% done.





After that Came the WARN 9.5xp Winch, and Masterpull Synthetic line. Probably my 2nd Best mod yet. Did a lot of wheeling with that setup, but wanted more.

So next was a Full 1 off rear bumper and tire carrier with lights and all. I just couldn’t find anything I really liked, So I went this route.



Now that I had a place for the spare tire the roof rack was taken off.


Realized I couldn’t see a damn thing out the back, so I installed a rear view camera.

More toys started coming: Got my Bushwhacker Flares on, Spidertrax spacers, and 285/70/17’s put on. In came the new 4.5” lift parts, so I started that. I got IRO bolt on LA brackets, IronMan 4x4 Fab Long arms, JKS Quick disco’s, JKS Adj Track Bar, IRO Adj rear control arms and Rear adj Y, Clayton 4.5” springs, and all new isolators.

Install wasn’t bad in the rear until the jeep fell and literally cut my thumb off, they put it back on but I can’t get the rest of the lift done with 1 hand. In a couple months I can get my hand working I hope.





Let me know what you all think!!

That looks really good, and thats an extreme injury. Glad to hear you got your thumb put back on but sucks you cant finish the lift. I wanna know more about were you got the blue air chuck/prv mount? And do you have more pics of the rear bumper finished? Sweet build.

I actually got that mount from harbor freight tools. Was pretty cheap too. I'm sure I have some...
