I was bored so I decided to copy my build thread over from jeep garage...
I finally decided to take some time and put together a build thread for my jeep, so here it's goes...
A lot of the early mods that I did, I can't remember the exact order, and some things I don't have pics of, or the pics I do have are newer so I may use those so if you see any pics that look out of place, that would be why!
I bought my Jeep on April 25, 2009. It's a 2007 Laredo 3.7L, and had 24,047 miles on it. I paid around $17k for it.
First thing I did was get the front windows tinted, and ordered a short antenna.
Then I debadged the rear hatch (Decided to keep Jeep on the front and rear)
Now it was time for a lift.
Decided to go with the Daystar 2" Spacer Lift
Then shortly after I installed fog lights and front recovery hooks (no pictures of the hooks but I think everyone knows what they look like lol)
Then I also installed a factory 2" hitch, but unfortunately didn't take any pics of that either. Again, we all know what that looks like)
My girlfriend at the time (now my wife) got me 4 moab rims for my birthday. So I ordered .25" spacers found 4 brand new BFG MT km1's on ebay for $500 shipped to my door. While waiting for them to arrive I search all over the internet for a good deal on TPMS sensors and luckily came across a local guy on craigslist selling 5 steel wheels off of a new JK with sensors for $60 total! Picked them up took the senors out and listed the wheels back on craigslist for $100 and sold them a few days later...that's right, I got 5 tpms sensors (pretty much brand new) AND made myself $40 lol!!! So anyways, I had a friend of mine mount and balance them for free and on they went!
Then I went out and tested the flex
Also checked "the bolt"
Next up it was time to powder coat my wheels. Went to pick them up and realized I forgot to bring my new black lug nuts with me, but here are some pics from the day I got them on.
After that I put my black lugs on and ordered some 6k HID low's and fog's. Gave it a good bath and went and took some pics.
