My 2005 Grand Cherokee

Here's my 2005 Grand Cherokee... Haven't done much to it yet, bought it and two months later I got laid off. Just got a new job so let Project Tonka Truck begin!





Got some Cheapo Riken Trail A/P's... Came with the car when I bought it. Tire recommendations would be appreciated! I want to eventually do a 2" lift.





Just got the Stereo put in, only thing on the car that isn't stock at the moment... Well besides a K&N Air Filter and the roof racks.



2 12" JL W1's

Congrats and congrats... You posted pics... dirty ones.... with recent mods... This guy is ok in my book! My only complaint is that Saturn is blocking some of the natural beauty in the background, lol.

All Gear, No Skill.

Any suggestions for mod's would definitely be appreciated. Looking more for performance right now as this is going to be my daily driver for a while and I have about a 40 mile commute to work every day. I was looking to do a new exhaust and maybe a CAI, not sure what would be the best choices for either of those. I talked to Kolak about maybe getting a superchips programmer, not sure what I want to do about that yet (Buddy is trying to convince me to get a custom super charger ).

Any thoughts are appreciated.

I have mad love for that saturn. I put that thing through more **** then any car deserves. Took it two tracking in the UP a couple of times... New oil pans aren't cheap. There's just a parking lot over there anyways. I'm still learning to wrench from my buddy so expect more in the coming months, thinking about a 4xguard front skid plate, those things look sexy. Bit out of my price range at the moment though. Actually one of my next projects is figuring out where the hell i'm going to put these tow hooks I got from my dad on the front end so I can tie down my canoe. Haven't been able to find much on where to mount them or how really.

remove those subs. thats 60 pounds right there. that should improve performance.

i think a superchips tuner would be a good start after shedding that weight.

Honestly I wasn't even going to bother buying them but I got them for around 50 bucks.

I am definitely looking at the superchips, any suggestions for an exhaust?
