Hey Guys (& Gals?),
Let's start off with a little about me, I'm almost 16, I'm almost finished with my sophomore year in high school and I got my first jeep in January! I've wanted to start a build thread for a while, but never really got up to it. So here's the jeep at the moment of writing this thread:
It's a 4.7L V8. (Not High-Output)
She's a 2004 Grand Cherokee Limited 4x4. It has quadra-drive, so it's all time 4x4(No, it's not AWD
) So here's everything from the beginning:
The dealership photo:
First thing I did, I put on the bullbar, but that didn't work out exactly as planned, and apparently the bolt holes on the frame are different on the 99-03 to 04, so my uncle welded it on, while he was helping me change the diff oil, which was another problem we ran into. I'll explain later.
After that I put on the Rola Roof Rack, and 1.25" wheel spacers from Rough Country. I really like how it changed the stance. Looks nice to me.
Snowed in my town, a couple months ago.
After I did all that, I started to focus on the inside. Now, don't judge me when I show you my sub setup, its 100% temporary. My infinity speakers were struggling with the bass, so when I bought my Alpine CDE-HD137BT I set the high/low pass filter to send all the bass to the rear sub.
The Power Inverter (It will make sense in a second)
The Temporary Set-up
Now, I know you're thinking, 'OMG, you're gonna burn down your jeep with all that house wiring.' I have run this setup for hours at a time. and nothing is hot and nothing is malfunctioning. I know it seems ghetto, but I don't have much money, and it sounds decent to be what it is. You see nothing except for this one little wire when its all covered up with the rear cargo cover and the glove box is closed:
Yes, I know I have a scooby-doo matte, its for my 11-month old little sister. It used to be mine when my dad had his Dodge Ram.
I think that's it for now. Next, I haven't quite decided what to do. I have a couple things in mind.
It's between a iPad Mini in the dash (I measured, it would fit perfectly) and getting a more permanent audio setup. Or, getting a 4" Rough Country or 3" IRO Lift. Let me know what you guys think!
