Mandy the Commander's Build Thread



Meet Mandy the Commander
She's my pride and joy!

I bought my XK in late 2006 right off the showroom floor.
Mandy is without a doubt, the best vehicle I have ever owned.

I'm proud to say I performed 100% of the custom design and installation for all mods, repairs, and upgrades. I have to thank the forum members on this and many other Jeep websites. The knowledge and expertise shared by other members has motivated me to tackle my own repairs/mods and in some cases, sharing what I've learned from the experience. My first lesson, TAKE PICTURES!

K, so I wasn't trying to build a time machine when I installed the capacitor. But why not.
Flux Capacitor: Check
Now, where to install Mr. Fusion? Hmmmm



Installed Toggle switch for cargo LED's in dash bezel along with LED to light up to let me know the cargo lights are on.

My current startup splash screen. Gets a lot of laughs

All I can say is why didn't I install this upgrade sooner. MAJOR IMPROVEMENT
