Heres my 2006 WK laredo 3.7L. I got back in Nov of 2010. It is my first jeep and im liking it so far. Im a truck guy with my v8's but gas was killing me so i figured time to step down for now... I wanted to build the jeep but still keep good mpgs for the amount i travel everyday.

Before. Dec 2010

After 2months of feeling driving a sedan and getting the jeep stuck at cabelas park lot, it was time for a lift and tries.

Just keep my mpgs above 17, I went with rough country's 2inch spacers and nitto grapplers rapped on fuel wheels.
I <33333333 H.I.D.S! i dont know how people can drive without them. So i went with 6k for low beams and fog lights.

Next up was LED reverse bulbs plus some tint one tail lights... And
Rigid Industries daullys on Saguaro 4x mounts.

Looks good Bud! I like the build so far. :2thumbsup:

Those duallys would get yanked off in a heart beet down here! That's why I flush mounted mine.:D

Robb286 09-05-2011 06:23 PM

Thanks man! Im just gonna throw it out there... Your jeep looks AMAZING!!!
I like what you did with your daullys but im going to go with the 30/40inch light bar for up on top.
And very awesome idea with the hind away winch. My matrix comes in tomorrow so i might throw a winch on it or hind it.

Nice WK, dude. I added it to the build list. Sorry it took a little while to get around to.

Omelet 09-05-2011 09:20 PM

Thanks Bud! I really want a 40" up top on my rack, but I don't do enough night wheeling to justify the price even with the discount I get! I want to see how it looks on a WK though. Man the light it puts out would be awesome for a night run!!!

jager00 09-06-2011 02:53 AM

The jeep looks great!

Robb286 09-09-2011 07:28 PM

Love the Matrix on your rig, makes me wanna go buy one now!

Robb286 09-10-2011 05:25 PM

Thanks man. I dont know how many more 4xguard has left. Im almost positive i got the last one for now. I wouldve gotten the side rails but they didnt have anymore available.

Where are you located up there? My grandparents live in Kingston (forty fort). And the other set live up by harvey's lake.

Robb286 09-10-2011 07:04 PM

I live right out side of mountain top and i drive thru kingston daily.

Gave a touch to the tailgate today. I rushed it, so it might look alittle halfass. The letters only cost me $9 at autozone compared to the chrome cherokee molding at $90.

i didn't even know you could do this!! i think yours looks waaaayyy better than the chrome one does (i'm not a fan of chrome to begin w/ though). this is now on my list of things to do to my own wk...the list just keeps getting longer! :rofl:

your jeep looks great! :2thumbsup:

Did you paint yours??? and how did you center it, lol. Because that would be the first place I'd screw up.
