Well not today but since I bought it back in june 2013 here is what I have done.

1. Must do replaced clockspring in steering column to fix lights coming on and cruise control issues, bought a dorman replacement part and worked great.

2. New shocks all around monore sensatracs nothing great but is a better ride for sure.

3. new stereo deck with mp3/usb ports and input for ipod. Had good pioneer speakers already so just needed new deck.

4. LED lights for interior such a cheap nice upgrade makes vehicle look much nicer and can find stuff inside now.

5. New front bumper old one was super faded and oxidized cost 80 bucks from amazon and makes truck look new.

6. new headlights to replace faded units.

7. windshield got shot with pellet gun so $100 new windshield looks nice thanks insurance. only claim in 20 years lol.

So thinks thats it just adding things as I find them really like the SUV thye just need a little more love then most trucks but overall its my best toy.

I have serious health problems so tasks take me awhile to complete but gives me something to look forward to or sometimes dread LOL.
Keeps my busy and is a nice ride 2000 wj laredo I6 135k.

Attempted to use an upper control arm bushing tool rental from car quest for my axle side side bushings... No go. The tool is too small and so are the cup adapters. I think im going to make my own and mimic the Miller spx tool.

I did finally get around to installing the zone 2-3" front sway bar links. There is a noticeable difference with cornering and staying level.

Changed my oil.
I love my WJ, a small amount of repairs in the past five years and all I do is change the fluids.

I've been a stranger lately, but Jeep is still running strong. Been holding off on any mods, wife caught on. So, been staying away from JF to try and keep from buying stuff/looking for problems.

Put my exhaust tip on, got my ultragauge programed as I want it for now. Added some transmission fluid. Seems to be leaking slowly.

Having my first and only child was the reason I bought my WJ in the first place. It stays until it falls to bits.....well maybe!

When we had our first, I bought a '91 Cherokee Laredo. then, when we had a couple more, I just had the wife buy a
Chrysler T & C AWD. Plenty of room for kids. Now that the youngest is 15 1/2, she doesn't really need it, but still wants to keep it.
