I have had an account on this site for awhile now, but I have not been too involved. I have a build thread on Jeep Garage, but I felt as though I could use more feedback and wanted to also contribute to this forum. I am now 17 years old and this Jeep has become my life; I wouldn't have it any other way. I will not directly copy and paste from there to here, I will have them both be original. The only similarities will be the pictures. Anyways, here are some specs:
It is a light khaki 2005 WK rockin' the 5.7L. I have done many modifications to it, but I won't spoil anything yet.
Here is what my WK looked like the day I got it:
I have now made the WK my project and I have many plans for it. There is plenty more to come, this will just be my start! I hope you all enjoy my thread!
The first thing I knew I had to do was a lift install. I did a lot of looking around and decided that Rocky Road Outfitters was the best option. The installation was more than I had expected, and hoped, but it was well worth it. I got it with the RRO shocks, which work well for now, and painted them red right away. (As I also did with the OEM tow hooks)
Here it is after the lift:
As you can see... It was really in need of something... Something beefier.
I decided that the grille needed a new look and since I knew I wanted to paint my wheels a satin black in the future, I did the grille that color too. You'll also see that the Plasti Dip eyelid mod was done. I did the grille using:
I could not tell you why I have not been involved in my own build thread lately... I have been very hard at work with my Jeep and a lot has been done, so if you will all accept my apology, I would like to bring my own thread back to life!
I will do my best to start off from where I left off and work in order from there.
My next upgrade was my carbon fiber interior overhaul. I simply used some 3M Carbon Fiber Vinyl that I got for around $20 to do this:
Doing this was an extremely simple process of laying the vinyl down and cutting it. I took all of the trim off first, though.
I eventually got to painting my wheels a satin black. I really love the way they look, I just have a concern with the durability of them. I chipped a very small area around the lugs when putting one of the wheels on, so I am going to apply another coat, or two, of clear coat when I get my new lug nuts. Anyway, here is what I used and how it came out:
During black Friday, I got my hands on one of these for a great price.
I absolutely love this tuner. It has served me so well and being the Android fan that I am, it couldn't be easier. The difference is pretty crazy compared to what I thought I was going to get outta this little guy. I would definitely recommend it.
