Future Modifications:New front and rear bumper, a winch so I can use this girl as a support vehicle for my Wrangler on the trails.

Got this girl with a bad fuel pump and a lot of other stuff. here is what was wrong with her and what I needed to replace:

New left and right front axle shafts for CV boot / CV joint failure
New left and right wheel hubs
New ignition coils
New spark Plugs
New fuel pressure regulator / external filter
New fuel screen x4
New fuel pump (Swapped 8 airtex pumps under warranty, then got a Bosh, stay away from AIRTEX pumps, seriously ) - put on a fuel pressure gauge so I would know when It would get below 50 PSI and swap before failure.
New injectors
New power steering pump
New serp Belt
New heater core
New Tires
New rear window regulators
New Lift Gate shocks
New Wheel seals after a Grand Canyon road trip
New Ebrake shoes due to being caked in gear lube from leaky wheel seals
New driver side mirror for leaky auto dimmer fluid / ink
Dual bluetooth head unit (hands free stereo with bluetooth for phone and audio )
New tweeters since I blew the old ones
TransGo HD2 shift kit
Thrush Weld Muffler to give her a voice, but not too loud.
New Transmission solenoid pack
Rebuilt 247 Transfer case to replace stretched chain and leaky seals.
New Front brake calipers.

Rebuild Engine wire harness due to cracking wire insulation that was due to heat /age, or perhaps poor engineering on MOPARs part. Caused shorts on a few sensors and burned up a Transmission Range Module.

Put in 2 steering stabilizers after lift to cure death wobble.

Reprogrammed computer with shorter injector pulses for better mileage and performance. The stock programming was running to rich. Pushing 18 on the hwy and 14 to 12 in city if I go easy on the throttle. I also cut a hole in the spare tire well so I could swap the fuel pump without having to drop the tank. WHY WAS THIS NOT BUILT ALREADY. . . anyways. That always drives me nuts.

Had a valve seat fall so I took the heads off around 182200 miles and had the seats tacked in. So new head and exhaust manifold gaskets.

Put in the Bilstein shocks and Clayton 6.5 Front and rear springs.
