Cherrybomb05's 06 WK Build Thread

I've finally decided to make a build thread.

Here she is the day we brought her home. We quickly tore off the hideous mud flaps.
Before :

After :


3 days later there was a leak under her. Traced it to the transmission line. 500 dollars later she was back on the road. Then a while later I started to hear a whining noise. They thought it was the driveline. Drivelines were on national backorder and the jeep was down for 2-3 weeks. The driveline didn't fix it so they replaced the rear diff pinion and that fixed it. Overall the jeep was down for a month. Now I have some horrible water spots on the jeep I can't get rid of.





There are also spots all along the right side. Its due to the sprinklers hitting it every day and not being washed for the time it was there.
I tried changing out the differential fluid thinking it was low.



Didn't fix it, but it was due anyway. They had to change the fluid when they fixed it so it was kind of a waste, but oh well.

Left it alone for a few months and the brakes started squeaking. Bad. Put on some Wagner Thermo-Quiets and now they are great!




Going to order a lift here in the next couple of weeks! Just need the money for the tires!

Another nice one to add to the collection , but I didn't think you could get a 4.7L and QTII with the NAG1 (W5A580) trans.
Or is that a typo ?

Yeah, I used to have my 07 my "My Specs" but I changed it to my 06. I guess I forgot to change that!

Nice to see that you're finally modifying your WK (even if it is the khaki one) lol. Looks good, I dig the Stillens.

Looking good man, those AEV's are awesome congrats! Hey did you do your diff fluid change without a jack? I may be forced to do mine at home and I don't have one, I believe it is the sway bar (not sure) that looks like it's blocking the top couple of bolts, any suggestions?

Keep building the rig looks good!

Yes, I did. It's not necessary to jack the Jeep up, its just convenience. Make sure you have decent tools though, or else you will be wishing you did. I say this because it took some strength without big ratchets. With big ones it was much easier. I can't remember if I had to use swivel sockets or not.

Some pics from my recent wheeling excursion. I would have taken some trail/action shots but I was worried about slamming it into a tree!
..and it was my first time
