Viperman's "Silver Bullet" build thread

Well I figured that I might as well start a build thread since the mod bug has bitten me extremely hard. I purchased my WK back at the end of December last year. I was driving a 2000 WJ Limited when I got rear ended driving home from work. I decided it was time for a Hemi, so I picked up my 2005 WK Limited. I also have a 1999 WJ Limited that I'm in the process of fixing a couple of things on. I'll try to remember to take pix for future upgrades.


When I brought her home:

Then I had to get a lift. Bought and installed the RC 2" BB with new Monroe struts,Moog coils and isolators. Also put on the upgraded sway bar brackets and new bushings:

While it was in the shop for the front end alignment adn radiator flush, I had them install my new trans lines. Also replaced all 4 of the O2 sensors and replaced the stock muffler and resonator with a Flowmaster Super 44 with a 3-1/2" rolled tip. Then when I got her back home I installed the Mopar CAI and the Diablosport Predator tune.

I still have a couple of sensors that I want to replace since it has 110K miles on it. I think it's off to a good start. Just hope the wife doesn't see the checkbook before I get it all done,lol.
