Shmidii's Build Thread
 
Hello!

I wanted a jeep for my first vehicle. Im 17 and was suprised a little before my 17th birthday with this baby outside. My 2008 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 :thumbsup:

It took a really really long time for me to decide if i wanted to make it look street or offroad so in the mean time i started working on the inside first.

I changed my stock radio because I wanted a fancy touch screen and I NEEDED navigation because i was terrible with directions.

Before:

Next thing I did was tint my tail lights and 2 front windows. I decided whichever route i go (street or offroad) i want to take advantage of my black jeep and "murder" it out (:

My next project was for a sound system. I didnt have money to buy and entire sounds system so i bought a subwoofer and and amplifier which i had hidden very nicely in my trunk. This sub seriously kicks. The amplifier is under the floorboard in the back i will lift it up and take a picture another time.

I took my still stock jeep offroading to see if i liked it ( here are 2 pictures i took)

Obviously i wasnt able to get up much but i loved it and thought my jeep looked happier all dirty. So I decided to build my jeep the offroad route!!

So the next thing i did was get a 2" daystar lift
