Finally introducing myself after months of lurking and adding my .02 here and there lol. Been a big advocate of Jeeps forever. After building multiple XJ's, a couple WJ's I finally stepped up and graduated to a WK. By far my favorite Jeep thus far. About a month ago I picked up a '05 Hemi WK, QDII Limited. Front struts were blown, EGR was bad, the only fluid that was routinely changed was the engine oil, some light body damage, bad ball joints, and brakes. All that being said for the price I really couldn't pass it up, knowing that it was going to be "upgraded" ASAP. After doing a tune up, changing the EGR valve, new PCV, cleaning the TB, changing tranny filters and fluid, and all the other fluids I got around to modding it some. First was the Volant CAI, then the Gibson CB. Just got around to doing the OME HD and changing out the ball joints(all 4, pain in the a$$). Just added the Flashpaq and am quite amazed with the difference in throttle response and shift points alone on the 87 tune. I'm waiting on some JBA UCA's(GF's XK is getting my stock UCA's w/fresh bj's since her bushings are squeeking to beat hell after a RC 2"). Also am going ahead w/the patent pending "Omelet lift" with spacers front and rear. Big thanks to Omelet btw for all the help via PM's, dude knows his stuff!
As for the name, the gf likes to name all the vehicles and when it came time to name this one she flat out said, " It's Oscar, cause it looks like it crawled out of a trash can!" Bahahaha! Couldn't argue with that. On to the pics!!
GF removing the front valance
pinch weld taken care of
Installing the OME HD
New 285/70/17 Duratracs, 1.25" spacers, and side skirts removed
Hers is what? a v6? I'm looking forward to seeing wheeling pics featuring both Jeeps
She's got the Gen II 4.7 with a Magnaflow CB. Thing boogies, even with the 265's. I'll def post some pics and hopefully vids soon w/the WK. Her's is a mall crawler to the fullest, lol. Until then here's a couple pics of my last XJ build wheeling up north for the Iron Rock Offroad customer appreciation run to hold ya over.
