Project overkill build thread

i bought my:
2005 grand cherokee
4.7l QTII
35000 miles

heres how she looked when i brought her home. and this is the cleanest its ever been
from this

To this



my fisrt mod was the x-factor 3.5" lift (only 2" and was disappointed )
then the bug bit me. so i got a deal on some rubicon rims, cooper discoverer stt 33x12.5" tires, and spidertrax 1.5" spacers

i had to do a front and rear fender trim tp make them fit.

then comes my delima. my tires was to big to fit in its stock location so i thew it on top and didnt like it

i also threw a 60" hi-lift jack up top mounted with s4xc mounts.
so i saved and saved and bought my s4xc rear bumper/tire carrier since i hated my top mount tire.
i figured while i was at it id paint my rims black.

also in the last few pics you should see the 3' firestick antenna mounted on my s4xc antenna mount.
hooked up to a midland mini cb radio.

next on the list i had the opportunity to test out the first set of JBA front discos




after that i had the opportunity to test out a set of JBA uca's

i bought the 4xg belly gaurd last but never took any pics. which should lead me to buying a ome kit to do what ill call the ome+ but now selling since another opportunity has arrived

future mods
d60 rear locked
arb oba
s4xc front winch bumper
warn winch
gobe rack
and more that i cant think of right now.

Enjoy!

Nice build man, looks good. I thought you were selling it? And what do you plan on doing in the front suspension wise with the d60 rear?
