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).

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
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)

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!
