blackwhiteriot build thread

i bought my 1996 grand cherokee orvis on december 18 2008. after my first zj a 1996 grand cherokee laredo was a victum of a hit and run.

this is currently what it looks like.







this is the way it looked when i got it.







i sold the roof basket because it was way to big for my car. and put the euro clear projector headlights housings and 8000k HID conversion.

smoked the tail lights


then i put two hella 500 fog lights and put 2500k bulbs in them.


me and dcvance87 put on a 2.5 BB with skyjacker hydro 7000 shocks

put on my old 31x10.5


meshed the grill


cut the front bumper


did the wrangler gas bezal mod


scrapped the old gold emblems because they were gross and relocated the "orvis" emblem.

That's one clean ZJ man. I'll leave it at that though because it's in the tech section. Don't want to chat up your build thread.

yeah, i didnt know of mooney when i saw his jeep on Craigslist i was like that looks tight. and i told my buddy dcvance87 and he said he knew it was his. lol wasnt trying to jack his idea. but it looked sick.and i mounted them with three self tapping screws shaped like a triangle and on the top screw i put a couple washers behind it to aim it down a little bit.

I dig the gas bezel mod. You should come over to my place to help me out with it. Then we can get dcvance to come and help us both with our fenders..
