Jeep Building

I have a 2001 red WJ. I got like $800 and want to start a build. Honestly just about looks right now..until I can afford a better offroad vehicle. Suggestions? Parents are paying for all terrain tires. Let me know what you think.

yep, thats what he is talking about if it is laredo, not limited with color matched cladding. you can use krylon fusion paint for plastic. works great

how bout a tune up? nothing like more power and better gas mileage.

or how bout a good wash and wax.

Clean up the wheels.

heck at this point you have 750$ left so buy a lift kit.


what do you mean a better offroad vehicle? blasphemy. I've been pulling people out of the snow left and right.

if parents are paying for tires id try and get a lift and put it on before so you can get them to buy bigger tires

With only a 800 dollar budget i would just get a budget boost (2in. or so) lift for now and a little bigger tire size and maybe get a front brush guard to give it a little more aggressive look and a good set of driving lights if you dont have factory driving lights
