Well I finally decided to start a build/mod thread to consolidate all my stuff in hopefully one thread. It's a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 with a 242 TC and 30/35 axles that I bought new with 16 miles on it in Tucson AZ. I have a lot of catching up to do. I'll try and catch it up as quickly as possible.
Been Jeeping since 1975. Have had CJs, a MJ, XJs, WJs and a WK. Even spent two years in Turkey with my MJ wheeling.
Here is a pic of when my current 01 WJ was stock (on the right).
Here it is now.
Some of the mod are hyper-linked to threads or pics until I get everything on here.
All mods either made, done or put on by me except for a custom built drive-shaft.
