x2 on the Shocks and Swaybars. It made a huge difference in my mind, one of best mods to do for the WJ.

The rear sway bar is pretty awesome. Interstate on and off ramps are pretty fun now. Very flat in the corner. Not sure if the shocks helped too, as I swapped them both at once, but the ride is waaay better than my 99 XJ. The Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo's get excellent reviews, so hopefully they hold up well on this WJ this winter. The 18's are JK wheels. You can get them super cheap online and they fit the WJ perfectly. The machined versions look really good on certain color WJ's in my opinion.

Re: Weekend work on 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ Special edition

Nice looking ride! Love the 18's too. The more I see them the more I would rock those before a set of 17" Moabs.

The jeep looks great! Hmmm, I may have to look into that pioneer unit, mine is starting to not read CD's well.

The head unit swap was really straightforward. Lost steering wheel controls for a bit. Need to get another part to make that work. The disc changer in the back isnt working either, I assume it can be wired back in too.

Re: Weekend work on 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ Special edition

Looks good with the 'summer' wheels on.
Hope you are as happy with your Magnaflow exhaust as I am.

Thanks! Not sure if Magnaflow or Borla gets the credit when it comes to the exhaust. But the two together sound awesome.

Zero drone on the interstate, tires are louder than the exhaust. If you get into the throttle the exhaust note is terrific.
