My new JK build

Traded in my 2011 Grand Cherokee Limited for something a little more fun!

Vehicle: 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport
Transmission: Automatic
Gears: 3.73
Mileage: 8060


The night I took it home for a test drive: (09/03/12)





09/04/12: I returned it to the dealership and bought it. Walked over to the service department and ordered the wheels and tires and told them I also wanted a 2" lift. They had it in stock so off to service I went and they installed the lift right then while I waited





09/06/12: I installed 2 Mopar Jeep grab handles, Mopar rigged floor mats, black Mopar door sill protectors.


09/07/12: The wheels and tires are on! I also picked up the black Mopar fuel fill door. It's coming together!



09/12/12: Here it is after the flares and doors and trail doors were installed. I also installed the speakers but you obviously can't see those. I also used "Plasti-Dip" and changed the grill to black for a different look (Not sure if I'm gonna keep it that way or not.).





09/14/12: Installed the Rock Sliders and the Hella lights





09/15/12: Entered it in a car show and took a "Top 25" spot.. lol








09/16/12: Went off-road (kinda) at an off road park. Didn't really attempt anything since I didn't have a buddy going, so I stuck to the main roads which had some off camber stuff, but nothing to write home about..









The next purchases will be the spare wheel/tire combo and front and rear bumpers etc..
