SF Bay Area WK

Hi Everyone,
I finally got a Grand Cherokee after selling my 08 Colorado (previous vehicles include a 68 convertible Camaro that I still have, 97 F150, 00 F150, 00 Expedition, 02 Focus, 93 Explorer and then the 08 Colorado). I looked into getting a 04 WJ and then building it up-4" lift, 32s and wheels, full armor etc. In the end I wanted something a little newer and the WK body style as this will realistically be more of a DD and weekend off roader than a full off roader.

What I ended up with is a black 05 limited 5.7l quadradrive with 96k on it. Already have weathertech floormats, superchips tuner, RC 2" lift, Bilstein 4600s for the front, 5100s for the rear and a Powerstop z36 full brake kit. Once the lift is on it'll get some 265/70/17s and either wheel spacers or new wheels. Also gonna put on either a MBRP cat back or just swap out the muffler for a small magnaflow.

Maintenance wise its gonna get a full fluid change and new plugs. Coolant and oil is already changed and I have the plugs to change out. Trans, transfer case and diffs are next. Its gonna need some paint correction too. I clay bared it and waxed it and it helped a ton.

Took the air dam off and put on new black headlights and smoked fog lights to replace the silver and cloudy stock lights.

Powerstop brake kit, new plugs, and new PCV go on this weekend. Next up is the lift, shocks, RC wheel spacers, and the 265/70/17 Falken Wildpeak AT3w.

Got a hitch shackle so the rear has a recovery option. LED reverse lights and a bluetooth adapter for the RAQ stereo are on the way.
