Thumbs up 04 WJ over in VA (pics!)

Sup guys (and gals),

My name is Grant a.k.a. grantb. I'm 25 years old, I live in Virginia Beach, VA. I live close to the Chesapeake Bay and the oceanfront.

I have a Jeep and I have a problem when it comes to not spending all my money pimping it out. (crowd responds "welcome grant"). This place feels like home already. That is me in the first pic with the Jeep (25 years old DIY kinda guy) I am a Computer Network Engineer for a living. Proactively maintaining computer networks (servers/pc's and network integrity).

I have been actively looking through this forum for the past few weeks getting ideas on what to do to my bone stock WJ Limited. But I am here now with pics on my first post (+25 respect points automatically LOL).

I have already purchased these items below - and waiting on there arrival.

Suspension-
$200.00 - Rear 1.25 Addco Sway Bar (Kolak - Nick)
$19.00 - Rear Sway bar Energy greasable bushings (Kolak - Nick)
$120.00 - 2inch Budget Boost (Rustys Off-road)
$35.00 - Replacement Steering Stabilizer (Rustys Off-road)

Performance-
$303.00 - Kolak 3inch Exhaust (Kolak - Nick)
-Magnaflow High flow converter
-Flowmaster 70 series muffler
-Mandrel Bent tailpipe
-Magnaflow rolled edge polished stainless steel tip #35113
$249.00 - K&N Fuel Injection Performance Kits (FIPK) (Kolak - Nick)

Exterior/Interior Lighting-
$142.99 - Gen 3 Headlights (Halo Projector LED Headlight) (x3racing -eBay)
$165.99 - Red Euro LED Taillights (will be taped off reverse and tinted) eBay
$29.95 - Black LED 3rd Brake light (tuningimport - EBAY)
$188.91 - Multiple LED(red and amber for taillight and superwhite LED's for inside the jeep) (http://www.superlumination.com/)

Exterior Looks-
$11.00 - Shorty Antenna - 8inch Euro style Black antenna (antennaX eBay)
$10.49 - Black Shock Boots (theusedjeep.com/oconeeoff-road - eBay guy)


So far this is what she looks like UNMOLESTED(it was raining today, but wanted to get some pics anyway out on the Chesapeake Bay. I will get a good detail going and take some more when she’s is purdy) -









Here are the items I have already purchased that I have pics of but waiting to arrive-







Here are a few things I am still wanting on my list (money is now the concern with Xmas just passing and recently purchasing the jeep and paying for insurance now - going to have to stack up my bread up again before any other purchases are made)...

Going to debadge on the next warm weekend I get. Also undecided what to do about the Chrome!!!!! I like the black look (why i got the black headlights, and going to tint the taillights, and the black 3rd brake light) but what do to with the CHROME grill, and the CHROME on the bumper? Keep Chrome, or go black wheels? If I went with black I am so lost on what to do with the chrome as I think it might look funny... Anyone want to Photoshop a black matt/ black gloss on the chrome to take a look?

HID Headlights ($199.99) -
- 9006/HB4 5000K lows with regular bulb for high??? (any suggestions here)
-Xterme Digital HID Kit from here - ( http://www.kbcarstuff.com/Xtreme-Dig...-Kits-s/21.htm) unless anyone has suggestions otherwise

Rims ($-1,200-1,400)
I am looking at Factory reproductions or a member here has some Black SRT for sale... Might take the 2inch lift off if too much space int he wheel well with a 20inch rim and a 275/45R20 Kumho tire (any suggestions)




Electronics ($499.99 + 70 to install) - local dealer
In Dash TV/DVD - Farenheit TID-831NRB 8.3Inch SCREEN! with backup camera - Video of the TV motion - pretty cool -



2 Orion Colbolt Subs with Orion Amp - (399.00 + 70 to install)
CO5001 cobalt amplifier

Thanks for the time you might take to make suggestions or comment on my WJ project. I am not new to jeeps, or the WJ - but never found this forum before

I had an XJ, and 2 WJ's (both lifted and electronics but never modded the headlights/taillights or antenna. Never even considered replacing the bulbs to LED's).

More pics to come with a good detail while still stock, and more pics as I slowly make this transformation on my WJ.

Have a happy new year folks!

Re: 04 WJ over in VA (pics!)

Welcome from the OBX Grant. That's quite the 1st post but cool. Looks like you definately know where you want to go with your rig. You only have the grill and the lower lip that are chrome right? Since you said you're debadging. You could just take those off and paint or plasti-dip them. We're getting a few members in the 757 area. I know Cherokee619 lives in Va Beach and I think we might have another. Check the map and go ahead and add yourself. http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=6667

Re: 04 WJ over in VA (pics!)

Thanks for the warm welcome guys.

I went ahead and added myself to the map - that is pretty freakin cool.

Lots of us Jeeps all over huh?



OBXJeep-

Your correct. Only the grill and the lower part of the bumper is chrome (and the current Jeep wheels).

I am just at a point where I am trying to decide to keep it, or get rid of it. I feel like getting rid of it and going with the black rims (then color match the grill with the paint color which will be hard and then add black mesh behind it) and then likely painting the lower chrome to match a flat/matte black.

I am more of a visual guy, so not being able to see it kinda makes it difficult for me to make decisions at times

Got my gen3 headlights and new tail lights. Just waiting on the AMBER LED bulbs and WHITE LED reverse bulbs so I can go ahead and install them.

Also picked up a HID kit for the projectors so waiting on those to arrive so I can install them. I picked those up from http://www.ddmtuning.com DDM Tuning - the Raptor HID kit - 35W, 9006 bulb 6000K

Not sure what I am going to use for a High Beam (probably halogen) bulb - anyone have any high beam bulb suggestions?

Also in the same predicament with the FOG lights (what bulb to do there - or maybe HID) - any suggestions?
