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.

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?
