Thought I'd start my own TJ progress thread. Something to do, I guess.
2002 Jeep Wrangler Sport: August 2008
The PO installed a Teraflex SYE and CV in anticipation of installing his lift kit.
I managed to get him to give me the 4" "Ultimate" Full-Traction lift with the Jeep. I sold it right away. Going to do Clayton, RockKrawler, or RE long-arm ASAP.
Installed Hella H4 headlights with standard 55/60W bulbs after getting pulled over for headlight in-op.
Ditched the milk jugs and picked up some caps at the dealership for about $4. Painted the Headlight bezels.
Put on some Hella 500's donated from my old XJ. Still haven't wired them up, haha.
Found a Hardtop on Craigslist for FREE. It wasmissing 1 window. The guy totaled his Jeep when he had the top off. By the time I got there he had the price to $100. Bought it. Had Novus install tinted window for $170. $270 hardtop = shiznit.
Here are some inside shots:
^^^My girlfriend got me a Rockknob for Christmas
-Bought a Pioneer DEH-P5000UB stereo and installed it. Works great connected to Zune or Ipod
The factory 7 speaker system sounded fine. But the little center console subwoofer wasn't giving me enough bass.
I got a Alpine 12" sub and a www.just4effect.com box.
Sounds much better now. Pounds good with top down.
If your fender flares are faded, just take a heat gun to them and bring out the black again.
Bought a Flowmaster Super 40 2.25" C/I O/O, and welded it into the factory piping. Removed cat and welded pipe in it's place (for off-road use only). I love how it sounds personally. I ran a Delta 40 on my XJ with no cat (for off-road use) and bigger piping.
