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.
old

New


Next came some better sound.

After that it stayed that way for a while. A few wheeling trips.




Next came the snow and some more playing around



Finally I got around to lifting it. I only got the front done first drove that way for a couple weeks.

Well the weather was good today so I took a trip up the mountains near my home so that my daughter could play in the snow some. Here are a couple pictures.







We also took our airsoft guns up to sight them in some.

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