Red face New WK Owner from Los Angeles!

Hey everyone! I recently (~2 months ago) bought a Beryl Green 2005 Grand Cherokee 3.7L Laredo 4x2 (would have loved 4x4, but the tiny dealer didn't have any) after my previous car, a VW Beetle, keeled over on the freeway. So far I'm enjoying my WK, outside of a few little issues that need ironing out, most of which are due to the dealer being sub-standard. I just stocked up on caliper paint and Plast-Dip for some weekend mods so that my baby will finally cease to be stock. Hopefully as time goes on my list of mods will increase.

As for myself, I'm a 23 year old female, currently a pre-veterinary student, and also working as a photographer/graphic designer/all around visual person. I've always been hands-on and tech-savvy, so I am hoping to learn a lot of little 'DIY' tricks and techniques so I can work on my WK in my spare time and make it stand out.

Here are a few photos of it. The beach shot was taken with my iPhone and the rest are with a Canon 5D Mark II.

Re: New WK Owner from Los Angeles!

Thanks everyone! I've been lurking around here for a while now (drooling over both the SRT folks and those who have the lifted 4x4s) and decided to join the fun. As a base-model 4x2 3.7L V6, I will be neither rock crawling nor producing any impressive lap times, but I do still plan on some visual mods. If I can find some 4x2 friendly dirt roads/trails around SoCal, I may explore those once I get a lift and some proper A/T tires.

Today I stocked up on Plasti-dip and high temp paint, so I plan on tackling my rims and calipers this weekend as my first DIY project/car mod!

Thank you! I was a former graphic design major before switching over to pre-veterinary medicine. I still do photography and graphic design on a freelance basis, so it trickles into my own stuff as well, such as my sig here.

Cool! I'm located out in the valley/818 area, myself. I actually am planning to go back to the LA river for a shoot sometime soon, maybe after I do some visual mods. I went there for a spontaneous shoot...only to realize that I had forgotten to pack the super clamps for my rig setup! D'oh!

Here are a few other examples of my car photography work:
