Got her washed and waxed and used the repair kit to fix some of the monstaliner that was peeling off. I want to get the hood repainted and then put the louvered vents in. Then do a few engine upgrades, but I still have the driveline vibes, looks like the tranny pan is starting to leak, few gaskets need to be replaced. Heatercore needs to replaced.
1. would really like to start getting some serious lights on it.
2. A roof rack with tire carrier
3. front and rear bumpers.
4. Really like the look of the JCR 1/4 panel armor.
I'm hoping I can get all those things fixed over the summer and then work on the nice to have stuff. Schools almost done.
Well with gas being 4.00 a gallon about just a little cheaper in MA I had to take the 31s off and start running the stock highway tires. gave me back 3 MPG, which means I'm back at 19-21 MPG. Lets hope I can get some money in the bank and continue with the build.
Re-do brakes all around
Figure out the DS issue
Oil pan and valve cover gasket
Possibly rebuild tranny
Gear to 3.73 or something like that.
Front tow hooks (C4x4 or IROs setup)
hopefully 4pointoh and I can get together and start making some CB antenna brackets are a reasonable cost and maybe start selling them for a lot less than everyone else out there.
I'm wondering about these "projector" headlights. I'm going to get DDM tuning HIDs if I can justify the 45.00 for them. I already made an upgraded headlight harness with in line relays to use 80/100 H4 that I've had for over a year now. Figured I could use this harness still and just add the HID ballasts and all that. Not going to lie but I really like the blue ring around the headlights.
Got the Projectors and ordered my HIDs from ddmtuning.com I had 80/100 watt halogens with an upgraded wiring harness I found a write up on. The wiring harness worked great and I was very happy with the halogens. So happy I'm using the harness in conjunction with the HIDs. Because the harness I made has relays it will be safer and the 55 watt HIDs should (in theory) have no issues with this harness as it's just meant to give more wattage but its only going to draw 55 watts. The kit from ddm cost about $80 with shipping included and projectors were roughly $65 with shipping included. I think its worth the investment and I have always liked the HID look and getting the projectors should keep me from blinding oncoming drivers. I hate the kids who put them on and just blind me and other drivers or use the 12000k lights that you can barely see with but "they look cool". BTW my HIDs are 6000k......nice super white color. Pics hopefully soon still working through the install slowly as I'm still at school and finals are next week. Projectors look nice. They come with 80/85 halogens in them which was cool and the blue halo around the edge as well. For the money I'm not complaining.
Finally had some time to add new photos, got the projectors in, new clear markers lights, and cold air intake, Bushwacker flat flares, and front and rear bumpers ready to go on, just need an extra set of hands. Also did the durango swap and sold the dunlops on CL and bought 4 new rims and General Grabbers...
So far the grabbers are great tires, still seem to be aggressive enough for weekend warrior rides and then super quiet for the commute to work/class during the week. Very pleased and I got a $50 visa gift card.
