Being a teenager in high school I needed some "tunes" since the stock stereo sucks.

I went up to Stereo Warehouse and got a Pioneer DEH-690UB and 2 pairs of Boston Acoustic SX-55 component speakers. I put an ipod jack in the glove box so I have access to 7000 songs at any given time.






I live in Kent and know a TON of people who had their cars stolen so I invested in the top of the line Viper system. Has remote start for the cold mornings and to start at the top of the mountain and get to a warm car after snowboarding.

Now for the GOOD stuff. After saving up money from work I finally had enough to turn the little toy into a real Jeep.

I bit the bullet and ordered:
Rubicon Express 5.5" Extreme Duty short arm lift kit
Tom Woods custom heavy duty drive shaft
Advanced Adapters SYE
.75" front coil spacers
BFG 33X12.5R15 M/Ts
DickCepek Black DC-1 wheels in 15X8
Rubicon Express MonoTube shocks

Goodies

I always use fresh rubbers

They were big

Needed a way to haul up my snowboards so I got a Olympic 4X4 top hat roof rack. Biggest PITA ever to install I might add. And the powder coat sucks!





holes did not line up. I took tie down ratchet straps and cranked the sucker down to get the screws in. Crappy design since they did not take into consideration that the front and back of the XJ is a different with on the roof.

Took her out to the Ravensdale to test her out



Might as well piss off some rice burners


And around the same time my good buddy flipped his truck by the flats. Thankfully nobody was even really hurt in the crash.

Got pulled over and issued a $535 ticket for no mud flaps, no front plate, and speeding. Decided to fix her up with some stuff to make it more legal.

Ordered AJ's Super Rails. Took them and had them professionally sprayed with bed liner.

Mounted them to the unibody with the bolts then just welded them onto the pinch seems.

Named her


I mounted a fire extinguisher in the cubby hole


Wheels are corroding



5% Black limo tint on everything except front windows. Front Passanger and Driver windows are 35% black tint.




Stole a school decal off one of our football helmets. Bottom of the K is cracked though.


As she sits today. And with a front plate finally on.

Well its about time the jeep gets a little more bass, errr well maybe a lot more.

Got ahold of the good guys at Fi Car Audio and had them make me a 12" Q with the full power options. The sub weighs in at 30 pounds on the dot and is a beast to say the least. I also picked up a Kicker ZX1000.1 that is pushing over 1000 watts RMS. Also have all the RCAs, distribution blocks, small wire, fuses, and 60 feet of true 0 gauge wire.

I got a ZX350.4 for my component speekers but im not sure if I want to wire it up since it will be a pita to rip out all the old wire and run all new wire.






A local guy I am buddies with, and who has a system pushing 150dbs, is currently building me this box custom for the sub.

2.5 cubic feet tuned to 33hz. 24'' wide x 15'' high x 19'' deep. 2.5'' wide port, port painted black, box painted speckled grey, and 33.75 inches of port area. Wood is 3/4" MDF.
