Will post pictures once I take some this weekend, and start documenting the changes.
Looks good so far. How much did the dealer charge for the tow hooks? I'm thinking of adding those myself.

$181 for the hooks (plus tax) and $175 to have them installed.

Gravy is statring to pour in. Got my RRO lift a few minutes ago.

Now waiting for my RRO Winch Kit with Combo Bar, BWoody Swap Bar Links and Warn Zeon 10-S winch to arrive.

Never have waited so long...

Now, where to mount the Warn Control Unit? It's detachable, and can go up to 70"+ from the actual winch. Think I'll mount it in the vehicle, and use the remote cable when needing access from outside. What do you think? I just don't want to drill hole inside. I'll scratch the outside, but the leather.... thats another story. lol

Wheels, tires and lift installed!

Just ordered the RRO Front Prerunner Skids and Supersliders a few minutes ago.

Should have the RROWinch Kit on Monday. My Warn Zeon 10-S has been sitting in my office screaming at me to get installed. Will take new pictures after that install, hopefully Wednesday.

Rubicon Express Shocks ordered today. Models RXJ713 and RXJ714.

Will let you know how the ride feels after installing these bad boys.

Nix that. Cancelled the RE Shocks. These are not right ones. They thought I said JK, not WK2. Guess it sounds close?!?

So, why get an Altitude and not a Trailhawk? The only Trailhawk was a V8, and I wanted better MPG's. Plus, the Altitude is gonna look sic when Im done with it!

Guess the Altitude wheels are in great demand. Not for sale at this time. And, already have my new wheels and tires on.

Car is in the shop right not getting the winch and mounts on it.

Will take a picture this weekend while off roading the north GA mountains.

Trying to. I want an Grand Cherokee Altitude with an Atitude. I turn the heads of most Jeep owners as it is. Just wait until the the winch is on, and the Prerunner skids and Rock Sliders are in.

My next challenge is investigating the conversion from simply all wheel drive 4x4 to a rig with 4Lo. Doing my research on what parts, aside from the Transfer case, would be needed.
