In addition to chasing down a couple of electrical gremlins, I finished the switch panel and the lights The headlights are Silvanias brightest 9006's. The fog lights have retrofitted 9004's. The spot lights are some halogen WallyWorld specials.

The switch panel:


The tint on the headlights and fog lights might reduce light output a little bit, but they're still hella bright.


Here's some pictures as proof:

Figured out the vibration issue. The slip yoke has play in it now that the driveline has been stretched. The solution:
Bought a NP 242 (Select Trac) T-case from the salvage yard with under 100k on it. Now I need to install it and look forward to better gas mileage and stronger 4wd. Pretty sweet day.

Haha gas milage is never good on these, but atleast its not as bad as some. Anyways, since my last post I swapped in all LED interior light and rear plate lights. Other than that not much but I have lots of ideas for when I have more to spend on it. I need to buy a full set of headlights since I have no clue on the last time they were changed and I have no idea what's in there.

In case anyone missed it I figured this would be a good place to post it. Crysler is doing a recall starting Jan 2013 on Grand Cherokees from February 13, 2001 through May 23, 2003, on the air bags. Google it up if you like I heard about it by chance during the rare time I listened to the radio the other day.

Technically I did this over 4th of July weekend but realize I never threw any pics up. Installed hood louvers that I've had forever. Theres no easy way to force yourself to cut into a perfectly good hood. Took a bunch of pics on my camera to do a write up in my build thread. Judging by my current pace it'll be a while.

Looks awesome, clean install! I thought about doing this but like you said, can't force myself to cut a perfectly good hood

Thanks but, It's blue. The lenses are the smoked ones off eBay. I just plastidip'd the inside chrome black.

The lenses really aren't that dark , they just look like it from sifferet angles, the hids cut right thru them.
