WKFusion's Build Thread

So this is my first build thread ever..
Goals:
265/70-17 Wrangler Authority's
2'' RC Lift
1.5'' Wheel Spacers*
Front Window Tints w/ Sun Visor*
In dash Receiver w/ NAV
OEM Hitch & Bezel
Flow-master Delta Series
Fastman throttle body
Cold Air Intake*

I started out with a 2004 Grand Prix GTP Comp G

Had 3.5'' Pulley Headers CAI Pirelli S4 Tune and 180 T-STAT
.....
.....
.....
Now My first day with my 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.7L !!!!





Then I decided I wanted to hide in the shadows and had the sun visor tinted along with the two front.
-
Needed a few more HP with a nice MPG jump...soo I added a CAI!
-


Started preparing for my tires...So I did the pinch weld and added spacers!!



NOW for my custom intake (PM ME FOR HELP, IM PRETTY TALENTED AT MAKING CUSTOM CAI)



....
....
WEEKSSS LATTERR!!!..
....
..
.




265/70/17 Wrangler Authorities!! Had minor rub issues but nothing zip ties couldn't fix!

Really thinking about a lift and super chip now!! (note .5mpg loss from tires NOT BAD!!)

More pictures soon!!

Yea it is a little restrictive... Not sure on how much of a difference it would make of I changed it. I do have ideas on what I can hook it up with. Won't be till this summer if I change it. I'll keep updates and look for more ideas.
btw thats a 10'' Cone with the open top. Plenty of air there.

Went muddin' yesterday to try out the new tires! man those things won't get stuck no way no how! I really need a lift...minor rubbing while hill climbing!

Also does it matter which hypertech you buy? can they all be flashed or should I buy the model on their website? THANKS!!

^^^ While I def agree these are great tires for the money and VERY aggresive for an A/T - they aren't an M/T and trust me they will get stuck. Don't forget your f/r recovery points and a good tow strap :-).

Have fun out there ;-)
