Introduction of myself and Rook.

Hey guys, been reading through the forums for about a week now, so about time I introduce myself.

My name's Christian. Currently living in Reno, NV. I have a 2005 GC Limited with the 5.7 Hemi. Currently it's 100% stock, but that is soon to change.

I got my Jeep in April of 2011 (with 101,300 Miles on it) for really cheap considering.

First thing I did was take it off into the dirt!

Before I really turn it into the beast I want it to be, I'm doing some maintenance to freshen up the engine. Just had the power steering pump go out on me, so I'm currently in the process of changing that out. While I'm at it I'm changing out all the hoses and the Drive belt.
Near future holds some upgrades: CAI, grounding out the throttle body, some lights mounted just behind the grille, and possibly replacing the headlights with HIDs.

Slightly less near future: Lift (OME with HD coils) -> New tires (Nitto Trail Grapplers most likely), compressor with reservoir.

In the long run: Belly armor and rock sliders, winch, Fab up a rear tire carrier, roof rack


Hope to get to know you guys and possibly find some wheeling buddies to head out with!

Welcome to the site! Looks like beautiful canvus ready for the art work! I can't wait to see what you do with her. Your plans sound pretty good to me

Hey, thanks Omelet! Big complement coming from you, checked out much of your build thread.

I have family in SoCal, so if I'm ever down there visiting, we should go wheeling!
