RJF026's Build Thread <<INSERT CATCHY NAME HERE>>
Well it's been almost a year since I purchased my 2010 WK and I've finally decided it was time to start my own build thread. I have incorporated so many things from others on various forums so it's about time I start sharing.
Not to bore anyone too much but I thought I'd start with a little back story. This is now my second Jeep. My first was a 1998 Cherokee that I picked up from my neighbor back in college and I kept it for a little over 6 years. Last February I was browsing various car sites one night and came across a heck of a deal for a 2010 WK 5.7 in black with all the bells and whistles. The mileage was high (about 60k) but everything else checked out. From what I could gather, the previous owner was a neat freak as the inside was immaculate and the user manual had been filled out at every 3000 miles religiously for oil changes, maintenance, etc (this could have been a cheap trick from the dealer but the car checked out otherwise). I wasn't really looking for anything at the time but I had to check it out. In a manner of 3 days I was able to work them down a few thousand and figure out the finances. Luckily for me this was coming from Nissan dealer where someone had just traded it in (it was on the lot only about 24hours before I saw it). They didn't really know what they had and just wanted to get rid of it. I wasn't able to keep my 98 Cherokee but did end up selling it to a friend so I still get to have it around when I go back home. Everybody wins.
I've put together quite a few mods over the last year, some more significant than others. I've never really been a car person but as an engineer I can take things apart and put them back together pretty well and Google and forums provide most of the detail required. I don't have many pictures of everything that I've done so far but I'll try and trickle a few things in over the coming weeks. Also, I unfortunately haven't been too diligent in taking photos along the way put things together so I won't have any of those. If I do post something and somone wants some more detail/info, just let me know.
Oh and I don't have a catchy name for my build thread or for my Jeep. Accepting suggestions.
