My 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee build
 
Well I thought that I would start a build thread for my jeep. It is a 1998 Jeep grand cherokee limited 5.2. I bought it completly stock. It had 112,000 miles on it when I got her.

Here are a couple pictures of her stock

First thing I did was went wheeling. Sorry no real good pictures of that. Only one I have is me pulling a Dodge out when he got stuck.

Well the shocks were pretty much shot so I put on some new ones that I got from JC whitney.

Wow cleans up really nice! I thnk Jeep should have implemented a 2" lift standard on all Grand's.

thething 02-27-2011 08:34 PM

I agree. a friend of mine got one and It just looks so weird. the 2" makes such a difference.
