Doodles' 06 TJ Build Thread

Finally getting around to making a build thread better late than never! Im naming this thread after my dog, Doodles, because hes probably the only person who loves my Jeep more than I do.

A bit of background: my father purchased this 06TJ in 07 completely stock with 9k miles on it. Apparently the previous owner bought it and hated it. I started driving it in 09 when I was 16. I learned to drive on this Jeep and it has been my only car & daily driver since. My hope is to finally get a second car at the end of this year so I no longer have to street the Jeep so often.

Ive also decided to make Youtube videos along with any mods/maintenance that I do and Ill be linking them in here as well.

Here are some pictures, past & present:

CB Radio Install

The CB Radio install was my latest mod, I got one because I recently joined a Jeep club, Baystate Jeepers.

It's a Uniden Pro 520XL w/ a 5/8 wavelength 2' Firestik antenna.

I filmed the install and made another video explaining a lot of the how & why behind CB radio operation - here are the links to my videos:



Let me know what you think!

I've been thinking about regearing for a while now and have done plenty of research into the field...

So I made this video that sums it all up and gives examples to give a better idea of how regearing and changes in tire size affect your jeep

Really like how you're making videos to go along with everything. If you can teach it you understand it just that much more. Also welcome to the 8" sub in the center console club I'll be following this build

Gauges, Dash Camera, and Navigation

I got inspired after seeing a friend's dash set-up and decided to do something for myself.

Originally I was just seeking extra gauges (throttle position, g-forces, inclinometer, engine coolant temperature, etc.) but after a lot of researched I realized you can do a lot more relatively cheaply!

Spent $140 altogether and got the gauges, navigation, and a dash camera all on one tablet I bought from eBay.

Check out the install video:
