My 2002 TJ Daily Driver

Thought I'd start my own TJ progress thread. Something to do, I guess.

2002 Jeep Wrangler Sport: August 2008

-Amber Fire
-A/C
-Cruise
-D44/Tracloc/3.73/D30
-4.0
-NV3550
-NP231



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.

Blew out a Mickey Thompson MTZ going camping a month after I bought it:



Ordered 5 new Maxxis Bighorn 31"ers off eBay for pretty cheap.

Poor repair on OE radiator sprung a leak: Purchased an all-metal replacement from Radiator Barn for $165 to my door.

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.

Got some Husky Liners like I had in the XJ. They fit nice!

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

Had a light in my dash burn out, replaced them with Super White Tri-LED's from V-LED. The light isn't as evenly distributed, but they work fine, are much whiter, and still dim using the stalk.







Also wired in a door light defeat switch. Works great.

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.




Here is a complete thread on the install:

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.

If it was free I'd be all over it.
