Jeep is in the driveway!

Brought home my new jeeep today, a white 2005 jeep grand cherokee laredo, now i guess its time to start the modding process. Any ideas or suggestions on some quick and in-expensive mods to start off?

Re: Jeep is in the driveway!

I think HID fog and headlights were my first mod.. What engine do you have?

Re: Jeep is in the driveway!

Welcome and congrats!
My first mod is in dash dvd/nav system... but a shorty antenna and new door locks are on the way and were inexpensive. Check out the vendors.

Re: Jeep is in the driveway!

Welcome and congradulations on your jeep purchase! I have an 05 as well. Lots of mods available. Depending on your willingness to do the work yourself, whether or not you have a garage or place you can work on it and the tools you have there are alot of relatively simple and inexpensive mods you can do. Converting to HID headlights and fogs were my first mod. Haven't stopped since! This forum is a good place to spend some time doing your research and the members will help with input along the way.
