MagJeep's Build Thread

So I've finally pulled the trigger on lifting my Jeep. She's my first car and its been 2 years since i bought her. 2006 Grand Cherokee v6 3.7L.
Everything stock except an after market remote start and alarm system, and backup sensors with a digital readout on the dash. The backup sensor is almost useless because it usually just picks up the ground and emits an annoying beeping sound.

Things I've done so far...
-Grill guard last year
-removed mud flaps
-painted back hatch step, black
-"bucket" style floor mats

Yeah, so that list is all pretty small stuff but hey, I'm a poor college student

Plans...
-OME HD lift w/spacers
-Bigger tires (undecided on brand)
-plastidip or powder coated wheels
-fog lights
can't think of anything major at the moment...

I ordered the OME HD kit from Kolak, should be here in a couple weeks and my brother and I will be doing the install. Anyone have wheel spacers that they're trying to get rid of?!?!?!

Oh, forgot to add a little project I did a few days ago. Plastidiping my from "jeep" badge and grill. I attempted to spray it on without taking the grill guard or grill off, come out pretty good. Could have gone heavier in some spots but it looks good.

Looking good so far! Let me know how the OME HD lift install goes I'm planning on getting it from Kolak myself, great dude. I also have an 06 3.7L but mines midnight blue. Good luck with everything!

I would think 3.7L is too weak to handle lifted jeep, especially with bigger tires

There are other guys on here with the same set up i will soon have. Like AJeepZJ who has a 3.7 with the OME HD and armor.

She won't be winning any races, but its a Jeep. Anyone else see it being a problem?
