Well I have a 06 GC Larado and figured I'd follow suit and make a build thread. This month has been quite productive for my jeep so i need to keep track of everything and what better way to do that then on here! I bought the Jeep back in November2010 after seeing it at a nissan dealer. The Jeep had 22k on the odom. and not a scratch, dent, or blemish on her. This truck is my DD so i didnt want to go crazy, plans are just a simple lift, tires, and all the other simple goodies. Heres a few pics of the Jeep the day i got her.
Had a bimmer before the Jeep so decided to get rid of it for goodies for the Jeep. This is the cleanest shes ever been.
First thing I did was take off the silly front valence.
Next was just some small stuff like a K&N drop in air filter, PIAA headlights, and a new headunit. Heres the lights
Grats. I know how you must feel. I just bought my 06 Overland 2 weeks ago and am chomping at the bit to start making improvements. I haven't started my build thread yet since I haven't taken any pictures yet. I'm hoping to do that in the next day or two. I guess our GC's will grow up together lol.
There was a freak snowstorm this past weekend while i was doing the tires and spacers, man did i pick the right time for some AT's to be put on. Here she is after tires and spacers. What an amazing difference in the looks with tires that fill up the wheel wells!!
The snow kept comming down so I waited a day and took the Jeep on a little arctic adventure. I never would have made it through all the trails with my old tires but the new ones didnt slip whatsoever.
Next on the list to order are some foglights. I want to do the lights hidden in the grill with some Hellas so that shall be done this weekend. Roof rack will also be comming soon along with some stock steel armor from mopar. Thats pretty much it for now. Im sure i forgot alot of things but as i add stuff to the Jeep i will update this thread. leave me some feedback, i hope u all enjoy!!
Nice Jeep Chris. It looks sick. I just did the front fogs and Hellas behind the grill myself. If you're looking to save some $$ check out RockAuto. I pieced together my fog light kit for 80$ shipped from them, compared to the Mopar kits going for around 200$. And if you shop around, you should be able to find some pretty good deals on the Hellas. I got mine from Amazon.
They are OEM but I ordered the kit in separate pieces from RockAuto for 80$ shipped. The cheapest full kit I could find was 175$. I got the housings, multifunction switch, relay and fuse. Installed everything and then took it to the dealer and had them flash the PCM.
