FIRST! Quick Story.. because everyone love stories! haha

Growing up my dad bought a 1979 CJ-7, I always watched him while he built that thing, I loved it! Money got tight and he sold it when I was in highschool . Well about 5 years ago we started to fix cars and flip them for profit.

I bought a 2001 grand cherokee 2wd few years back which now has about 258,XXX miles on it haha and we still have it!

Little after that I personally bought a 2004 WJ laredo with a 4.0, put a 2'' BB on that and started to mod/customize that, well then I had an offer to buy the jeep which was about DOUBLE of what I had into the jeep ha so, I sold it bought me a HONDA CBR929RR (crotch rocket). Had some cash left over and I bought ANOTHER 2001 WJ 4xd with the v8. I put a 2" BB on that as well with some little bigger sized A/T used tires.

My younger twin sisters both moved to Colorado in August, for VET school, and both only had 2wD, one a crappy hyundai, the other a 2001 Cherokee Limited 2wd, well after their first winter, they realized I was right when I said they needed 4wd in Denver lol. So I took her 2001 Cherokee, and I gave her my current jeep which was the 2001 WJ v8. I said I was going to sell her jeep and what ever the difference was in price, she would have to pay me back later on. (yeah like I'll ever see that money) haha

Well sold her jeep and I turned around and bought THIS 1996 Grand Cherokee Laredo with 200,000 miles with a rebuilt 4.0 on it. Pretty rough but I got it for almost nothing, which is good because now I have more money to put into it!

AND I KNOW I SAID QUICK STORY BUT... HEY!! haha

I will be posting pictures of my process

Also, there is an oil leak in the front that I will fix as soon as I have more time to find where its leaking, I also chunked those fog lights kept the wiring harness for I can install lights in the future.

Also, I plan on painting the entire jeep BLACK! This will be a BLACKED OUT lifted jeep except the lime green/neon shock boots, and stabilizer boot if I find one!

Now I'm just waiting on parts to come in!

Had about 20 minutes of free time before I went to work, pulled off the wiper arms, and gave them and the front bumper a quick coat of black paint. Also, I went under the Jeep and adjusted the shifter cable, which was off a little bit.

Waiting for parts...

Ended up buying isolator pads, through KOLAK, I plan on double stacking the originals with the new ones, to gain about an extra .5-.75 inchs

Had a couple hours this morning before work to slap on the new lights and mounting assembly, played around with VHT Night Shades as well...

Next thing I'm going to do is paint the grill black, maybe tomorrow morning, and the lift kit arrived to the shop today, probably will install that sometime next week when I have time!

Tinted both the tail lights yesterday, and installed them back in today, along with trying the linseed oil and paint thinner renewal trick on all the plastic on the jeep. Looks good, next week, if I have some time I really want to install the lift kit!
