No hooks or tow package on this one. Strange options IMO...

Pics







Finally mounted the Mag Lite in the back so it is easy to get.

I like the mag lite idea. I have so much crap in the back of mine I'll just use the flame from my Jeep burning down as the light lol.

Re: Just picked up a 2004 Columbia Edition 4.7 HO

Spent some time behind the wheel and added about 60 miles to the odo. It seems that the TPS/Plugs and O2 sensors have helped the fuel economy. Now that the engine is running like it should some shocks are in my near future.

Re: Just picked up a 2004 Columbia Edition 4.7 HO

Finally got around to detailing the Jeep today. Clean up included hand wash, clay bar, Meguire's 87 polish, and a hand-applied coat of Liquid Glass. I hope to get another coat of Liquid Glass installed in July.





This pic was taken after a few miles on the local gravel roads.

Re: Just picked up a 2004 Columbia Edition 4.7 HO

Thanks! This one does look sharp when it is clean.

The pieces arrived and I hope to install some stuff tomorrow before my day gets crazy.

Re: Just picked up a 2004 Columbia Edition 4.7 HO

I wish this was in the the build thread section...

Some things I have done since my last post include Bilstein shocks. I installed all 4 in less than two hours. It was clear this WJ spent most of its life in Florida and Georgia. The ride has improved greatly and the loose feel that the Jeep had is all but gone. I cannot wait to get some new tires on it later this month.

Re: Just picked up a 2004 Columbia Edition 4.7 HO

My most recent project was a sound system upgrade using factory parts. A friend of mine parted out a Dodge Ram SRT10 and I scored the speakers and RB4 head unit from it. I really wanted the 6x9's and while he was shipping those I got the 5.25" 2-ways, the 3" 2-ways, and the center channel tweeter. I wanted to put the 3" speakers in my dash but they are too deep and I gave up on that idea. By chance, I grabbed the center tweeter and noticed that it had the same plug as the tweets in the Jeep. Turned out it was the same tweeter (slightly different part number but sounds the same) so I used it to replace the fried passenger's side tweeter. Here they are beside each other:


The 6x9's fit but took a bit of modification. First, the frames on the factory WJ 6x9's are plastic and they have a relatively small magnet. The Ram 6x9's have metal frames and a much larger magnet. Here they are beside each other. Jeep on right and Ram on left.


Jeep on top and Ram on bottom:


Ram speaker is open:


In this picture, you can see the raised plastic shoulder around the speaker cone.


This shoulder interfered with the door panel on the WJ so I grabbed the Dremel with a cut off wheel and went to work. I set the Dremel speed to 6 and took my time, trimming it in the areas that interfered. You can see the trimming these pictures:


Driver's side:



Passenger's door speaker that is complete:


Finally, I installed the RB4 in the Jeep. (I am currently missing the satellite antenna which he will ship to me next week.) Plugged in the changer, power, and antenna then slid it into place. Turned on the ignition and voila! Note the CD playing - it was in the head unit when the truck rolled 3+ times. During the couple power-ons the boot screen showed the Dodge screen. After I started the jeep, drove it to the store, shut it off, and restarted it the screen updated to show the classic Jeep block letters that match the lettering on the steering wheel.


With the bezel reinstalled:


One last thought... I replaced all of the door panel clips when I put it back together. Definitely worth the money in my book.

Re: Just picked up a 2004 Columbia Edition 4.7 HO

Hey man I found your posts on here by searching google to find some pics of a stock WJ with cooper discoverer at3's. I see that you have 255/65/17 and was wondering if you have any issues with them rubbing or anything?

Also, the spacers you have on your sig, where are those installed at? (Front?)

Could you possibly take a pic of the side view so I can see what these tires look like before I purchase them?

This would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Just picked up a 2004 Columbia Edition 4.7 HO

There is a bit of rubbing at full lock but nothing that gets in my way. This is a daily driver that finds about 1/4 of my time on gravel.

As for the spacers, I will get some pics up tomorrow for you.

As for side pics, they are posted below/


FWIW... i have done a few more things to the WJ that are not included in this thread.
