Alright, I figured it was time for me to start up one of these things as well. I spend a lot of time on JF so why not have my own little notch in the corner? I am however absolutely horrible at remembering to take pics so this will be a little choppy to start off with but as I add more it should get better!
I traded my 97 tahoe
On a 2004 WJ Special Edition 4.7L this is what she looked like the day I pulled her off the lot.
Last fall I took a small off road trip up Green Mountain out side of Muddy Gap, Wyoming. I found out very quickly I would need more height as I destroyed my nerf bars and put a couple dents in the fuel tank.
Unloading to set up camp
Camp all set up it was raining like crazy outside by now
Me cheesin for the self portrait
After I knew I would need a lift kit, the mods went pretty slow as I was saving for it.
I painted my grille inserts and closed off my bottom hole
Like I said Im horrible about taking pictures during installs mainly because Im always by myself while doing work…I do recommend having help during installation of a lift kit…other wise you will need lots of jacks!
Very clean looking WJ, mild but wild at the same time
Personally, the front grille guard would look awesome if it was color matched, or if you got some black projector headlights. Silver WJ's and projectors is what I over.
thanx man Ive thought about painting it, but I dont want to paint it then get it all scratched up when Im out and about....but its not like I go mowin over trees and stuff so its still an option! As far as projectors, I dont know enough about them, do I need HID's to run in them or are they a simple plug and play?
the stereo is a Jensen that the dealer put in...I think you can buy the same at wal mart? Im waiting for it to crash out so I can upgrade it with something nicer! The rims are Helo Maxx 6 I was told they were +35 offset...Im prett sure he lied, I had to take my spidertrax spacers off to even get them to clear!

Loving the lift, but I kick myself everyday for getting the DT8000 shocks. Other than that its amazing the difference a 3in lift will do. The tires I have on my stock wheels are 245/75/16s, I plan on using those to wheel with...my Helos are 17in and I got wide tires, I think they are 265/70's that I just run on the street...it is kind of a pain and Im sure Ill end up scrapping the idea, but thats the plan for now.
