To start off, I had just turned 17 the 18th of this April. Last summer, I went out and got myself this beautiful 05' Jeep WK Limited 5.7L. My Jeep hasn't been that much of a project for me, though, since I got it. This all changed when I got a RRO lift kit last Christmas. I put the lift on myself (I'll talk more of this later) and ever since have been looking to get the most out of my WK. While I don't have too many pictures/updates to show now, I will be at work as often as I can. So I thought, why not create this thread now? Anyways, I hope you all enjoy!
This is what it looked like when I got it last summer:
As I said before, I got a 2.25" Rocky Road lift kit. I had looked up what other people had to say about the installation and felt confident I could do it myself. I honestly didn't know what I was in for, but let me just say it was an experience... It took me awhile, but I really happy with the results. Here is how it came out:
I also just got the chance to change the oil if you're wondering why there's an oil catch pan under it... Anyways, as you can see I could use some larger tires. I went to my local OK4WD store and figure Toyo Grapplers would suit me best. I put an order on them and they should arrive next weekend!
I thought I would put up a picture of this bolt I removed when doing the rear of the lift. It gave me and my buddy a laugh when we saw it. I guess some rust got to it.
Aside from the useful offroad things, I have also done some aesthetic work for that well-needed street cred! One thing about me is that I love red, and you will notice this over the length of this thread... The first thing to get consumed by my love for red was the front tow hooks along with the RRO shocks I got with the lift. Here are the hooks: (I will get a picture of the shocks up sooner or later)
That is all for now, but it is really just the start. I have a lot in plan that will be done this week or the next!
