The first three are of a custom fiberglass soundar I built that has two 8" subs, two horn tweeters, two powered tweeters, and of course two airports.


If you didn't notice I slid the original soundbar forward, and redid the ceiling with replacement auto carpet. So the ceiling is identical to the floor material wise. (You can also see the new overhead console/Mirror)

The Next one was a quick shot of my new wheels. I replaced the stock rims with brand new 17" rims off a cherokee, to do this I put a 2" daystar leveling kit in front and waiting for the 2" shackle rough country lift to come in that I ordered december 22nd. I also had to put an adapter kit on to change the bolt pattern from 5x4.5" to 5x5".


Next is the new overhead console from a '98 zj and mirror, I have not finished with my wiring, thats why the headliner is not tacked down at the window yet.


Last but not least the first part of my entertainment system a 6.5" lcd fiberglassed into the newly covered sun visor, it hooks up to a ps2 in the glovebox.


So grand totals all the reupholstering supplies and fabric cost $40
Fiberglassing/fleece costs $13
6.5" Lcd $17 off eBay
Overhead Console/Mirror $25
Wheels/Lifts/Spacer/Tires $385 but made $135 selling my old crap so $250 thanks to craigslist
Much more to come soon

you mean drilling more holes in it under the point which the air filter seats. its pretty straight forward, just put more/bigger holes, be sure not to cut in a way though to let it pick up more water or anything

I did the following lift for cheap...
Home Brew Budget Boost

If you just are looking for the lift portion, it's cheap from a JY. It's the fact that when you get it lifted, then you have 8,134 other things to do it. Ask anyone, it all starts with a lift!

Edit: Also, consider shocks from a JK, might be able to score a set cheap somewhere.

I'm looking for a ZJ Rear Disc mod under $100. Anyone?!

Also, I just ordered some WJ Control Arms that I am planning to install on the XJ once they arrive. $41 on eBay, used but only 40K on them. I'll do a write-up if I get ambitious!

Sorry I didn't see your post right away. It came from this little guy at the local Pick N Pull for $6. Wish I coulda taken the whole jeep with me, but it was never meant to be.
