First off, origin of the name. I myself see my Jeep as a protector. It will keep me safe as long as I'm respectful to it. I love the way my wk looks and it's a big reason why I bought it. All of the pluses came after I bought it. I plan to lift it high and make it look even better.
Sooo. In Greek mythology, Alcmene is the mother of Heracles but also greeks see Alcmene as the tallest, most beautiful woman with wisdom surpassed by no person born of mortal parents. It is said that her face and dark eyes were as charming as Aphrodite's, and that she honoured her husband like no woman before her.
Got a ring to it right? So let's begin this long, slow, sometimes exciting build slash mod thread.
As all of us do it seems I've taken ideas from other builds and made them my own. As of right now I haven't done anything to the WK that I regret. Everything has went pretty smooth and that makes me happy. I'm still learning to do things with vehicle and it is quite an experience considering my old car was much more easier to figure out.
Speaking of last vehicle I've made a HUGE upgrade to the grand cherokee.
A 2003 dodge neon SE. Definitely nothing special. It was sort of a project car since it was my first. My mother named it Neo and it acted as the best friend that would tie your shoe laces together and watch you fall. Quite an unpredictable little car. Very sturdy though.
Well onto Alcmene. She's a 2007 WK Laredo. Has the 3.7 like most but it's pretty well equipped. Heated leather seats, dual seat control, sunroof, roof rack, traction control, back-up sensors and adjustable pedals. Pretty much the works. Very happy about my purchase other then the price I'm paying for it.
Here it is. My new toy.
