Also new from Colorado

Hey all, I'm Chris/Beans from Denver. I have a 1999 WJ Limited with the 4.7 V8, with the upcountry package. Working on removing the upcoutry stuff and going with a more street friendly ride since the only time I ever drive this thing is to work in Vail. My dad probably wants to disown me for making it a "street jeep" but his TJ makes up for my "mistakes."

Mods:
18" JK Saharas in silver
245/55/18 BFG Radial T/A's(stock size for new camaro's)
DIY blackhousing headlights
3.5mm jack wired into stock radio
K&N air filter
passenger side heat broken mod
oil pressure sending unit broken mod
leaking transfer case mod
front and transfer case skid removed
front tow hooks removed
rear hitch removed

I've been considering selling it for a new Mustang, but I know I'd lose my ass on trade-in, and everytime I drive it, I love flooring it and getting that rush of torque. I've owned more "fun" cars in the past(2 accords, 1 rsx, 1 dakota, 1 miata, 1 integra, 1 318is, 1 TJ Rubi, 1 shitbox subaru), but this is overall probably the best all-rounder I've had. Decent gas mileage(if I keep my foot out of it), pretty good steering, brakes, and power. I'm thinking about swapping out the JK's for some 20" viper reps, doing an addco 1" rear bar, edelbrock shocks, eibach springs, a 3" kolak exhaust, and a couple other things.

Anyway, here's the snowtiger:
Before blackhousings, day of getting JK's on.



After blackhousings


I haven't taken any pictures of it in awhile since I haven't had to drive it much over the past month.

Re: Also new from Colorado

Nice! I live downtown but I like that car wash the best. I usually stop there on my way back from Vail if it's nice out.

Thanks, it's really not as pretty as it appears in the pictures, the camera on my phone hides a lot of the flaws.

Re: Also new from Colorado

I wish I knew someone in the area with a welder and air tools. I had access to all that stuff back when I lived in Ohio. I really want to lift my gas tank to try to run a center exit SRT style exhaust.

I'm always open to help ya wrench, but I don't have any of those cool tools either... If I find someone I'll let you know!

Those are all the pictures I have of it. Ordering a shift kit, trans filters, and swapping out the fluids in the transfer case and transmission this weekend/next week. Hopefully I can get it done before test and tune night at Bandimere on wednesday... as long as it doesn't rain.

My friend just informed me there's a place downtown where you can rent welders and cool stuff. Might go there to do my gas tank lift when I get a free weekend.
