05 GC from NYC.

Hi everyone. I recently purchased a 2005 Grand Cherokee Laredo as a family vehicle. As a former jdm market consumer, i'm green to the Jeep community, but hope to get some insight from being here. I've always been a fan of Jeep, and my father owned three Grand Cherokees in the past. I've seen a lot of wonderfully modified Jeeps already. Here are some pics of mine below, taken from my BlackBerry Storm. I will take better pics soon but I didn't want to post without anything to show.





I know it's the most basic of basic, but I don't have the money for the SRT8 that I wanted, and this one was very clean with low miles. I would like to modify it some, but I really have no idea where to start. It would also be a slow process due to financial issues at the moment. Nice meeting you all.

~Alex

Welcome to Jeep Garage and nice vehicle, although you might call it basic, its still a great looking GC. Nothing wrong with that at all! You'll find lots of people on here with the 2005-2010 WK and you'll gain a lot of insight into what can be done for a nominal amount of money!

Re: 05 GC from NYC.

^^Thanks, appreciate the welcome and the comment. I myself was very surprised with how well kept and clean it was when I went to see it before purchase. This may be the wrong area to ask, but I've noticed that the SRT8s have the "Shorty Billet Antenna". Other models might have it, but from personal observation i've only come across SRTs so far with that type of antenna. My question is, would these also fit on my model?

Re: 05 GC from NYC.

Welcome to JG. You have a great Jeep and it's a perfect platform for you to build on. You can make it what YOU like whether lifted, lowered, stock height with new tires and wheels, engine mods, interior mods, the sky's the limit and these guys have all the knowlege you need to get it done.

It seems that there are endless possibilities as far as customization is concerned. I'm actually rather happy I purchased the base model now, because the modifications and time spent doing will be very rewarding in the end. Thanks for the welcome and insight!
