Project Rhino

Well I was looking for a first car and really wanted a Jeep. I picked up a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee (WJ) for $2000. I needed some work but had potential. It was a V8 but had almost 200,000 miles on the car. The first thing I bought were spider auto halo headlights and fog lights and new taillight a to replace my fogged and cracked lights. After a tune up and driving it for a while my transmission went out so I found one off a similar Jeep WJ as well as the transfer case. Once I fixed that I noticed that the front axle wasn't distributing power to the front wheels so I had to get a new front axle. As I replaced the front axle I installed a 2 inch rouch country lift. While I was saving up for rims and tires a yackima load warrior roof basket on Craigslist so I picked that up. Then I got 17x8 KMC XD Rockstars and 31x10.5 General Grabber AT2s. The final thing I did was install a hidden winch mount on the front of my car as well as put a flow master 44 exhaust to top it off!

Did you plastidip your bumpers and side cladding, or actually paint them? Whichever, it looks great. That winch mounting is very clean.
