So I just recently sold my 2005 LJ
because we recently had a child and I needed a 4-door. My goal with this vehicle is similar to my LJ build. The Jeep needs to be a solid daily driver as it will be 90% on-road, and a sleeper wheeler. When I decided I wanted a 4-door I couldn't decide between an XJ or WJ. I previously had an XJ but couldn't find one without a ton of miles. I test drove some 4.0 WJ's and they seemed under powered. Then I found this Jeep:
2003 WJ Laredo
Selec Trac T-case
5 Speed Auto Transmission
D44a rear axle
Tow package (3.73 gear upgrade)
I feel like I got all the options with this Jeep that I wanted with the 4.7, 242 and 3.73 gears.
My first modification goal will be lift and tires. I plan on an IRO 3" lift and adjust the bumpstops for 32" tires.
