94jeepzj build of 2001 jeep wj

So here is my build thread of my 2001 jeep WJ. First off Idk why but i never started a build thread when I first got it so i don't have a lot of pics but I'm gonna start at the beginning as best i can and I'm gonna start taking a lot more pics during my future Mods/builds . So this is how it all begun ha ha

I made the 5 hour trip to Portland Oregon and paid $7000 for this 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7l limited in mint condition with about 115 thousand miles. It was completely stock besides it had a 4.5" Rusty's lift and some cheap side steps.

FUTURE MODS:
7" long arm
roof rack
rear locker
242hd transfer case swap
rear bumper
2 Din Touch screen navigation.

First thing I did when I got some time and money was put a Uniden CB in it and mounted some Fuel hostages 17x9 with some 265/75R17 BFG Mud Terrains.

A short time later I put all new brakes and control arm bushings

Now that I'm all caught up on the build so far. I just recently ordered Proto fab Dually low profile bumper,Dually led lights and a Warn VR8000. I'm still waiting on the bumper and winch, so today I chopped of my exhaust and put in a Thrush 2.5 inch welded muffler with a Turn down. Also I replaced my plastic battery box with this home made wing nut system ... the only problem is that i need a stronger crossbar that goes across the battery haha

First thing was I finally got my front husky mats installed. Gonna order rear and cargo area soon

Then why I was waiting for my bumper from Protofab in Arizona i decided to do a grill mod.

I decided to use hot glue and it worked pretty well even though i had to use a lot. I then decided to ad some stainless screws around the outside to give it that studded look.
What you think ?????

Finally my bumper arrived and I didn't waste no time install was kinda hard because you must cut more of the bottom of the frame on the corners then the directions show. but overall the build quality is amazing and i love the design and i got to finally install my dually led lights and man they are bright... i love them.

Also here is a final pic of my grill mod with bumper installed

Finally yesterday my winch arrived. I decided to go with the Warn VR8000 because it was in my budget and warn is based here is Oregon I built me a new battery bracket then installed the new winch. I love the quality of the winch... I ordered some synthetic rope but its on back order evidently
