Thought it was about time to start a build thread. Just finished up school for the semester, so I now have time to enjoy the summer and the Jeep. Its a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I originally bought the Jeep after I got into an accident with my 99 TJ. I planned on getting a lift and all the normal stuff when I was in search of one. I think the WJ's look real good if there done right.
For the build itself, I name it the Johnny Cash Jeep Build. Why? Because I am going with the black theme, but keeping it clean and nothing over the top. My Dad came up with the name because, if you know Johnny Cash, you know they call him the Man in Black. The build itself is one that is going to take time as I am in college. I want it to be clean looking, but definitly not your everyday WJ. It will be my daily driver w/ occasional offroad use.
How I bought it: Stock
- lift (2.5-3 inch)
- Upgraded Shocks
- Black out (what ever I think will look good)
- Bull bar
- Light bar
- fog lights
- And whatever else I come up with
I have a buddy who welds real well and friends in the auto mechanic profession. Everything will be done right and clean. Looking forward to it all. Let me know what you guys think. Suggestions, comments, and questions are welcome. Thanks.
This is to keep the thread organized:
