Vehicle Name The "Limitedo" = Laredo that thinks its a limited
Year 2011

2011 Jeep Laredo E package
History The Fourth Jeep that we have owned.
1st 1984 XJ 2.8 V6
2nd 1993 ZJ 5.2 V8 Limited
3rd 2001 WJ 4.0 I6 Limited
4th 2011 Wk2 3.6 V6 Laredo E

Starting with a 2011 laredo E is a good basis for someone that wants to get into a WK2 fairly cheaply. The E package was a good foundation for some value added upgrades.

Simple additions add class as you can see below.

At first glance no one can easily spot that this is a lower range model, not with working DRLs, bixenon headlights and 20" wheels. All the upper range exterior flash is there too. And the Katzkin overland styled interior finishes off the job.

A few interior splurges such as the steering wheel and shift knob in black wood take it over the top. Everything done to OEM appearance may have the uneducated thinking "hey that Laredo is well equipped.... why would I buy a limited?"

This is also a tribute to recycling since most of the parts used on this vehicle were purchased used or traded for.

All the labor was done by me so all the upgrades only cost me some spare time and the parts themselves.
