Stone Cold's Jeep - A timeline of mods
 
Thought I'd share a pictorial of mods that I've done to my Jeep over the last two years.

Most of it has been visual, as I've not had time to do any serious performance mods (plus I'm saving for an SRT8 anyway). I have added a cold air intake and a magnaflow muffler, with Rousch performance tip. I still have to fit the akebono calipers which I have sitting in my workshop:o

Anyway enough yapping, here we go.

Enjoy:D


A couple of days after I got her

The standard interior, little did I know just how much I was going to transform it:D

Then onto the weatherstripping. Mine was badly bubbled in some areas, so I had nothing to lose by covering it.

Then I picked these up on ebay for just 25!

I then decided to do some custom floor mats. I got there from ebay for 3 per pair. Solid aluminium.

Just four small bolts to hold it in place and voila!

A small exterior mod. I plan on airbrushing the skull in the near future

Next was some xenon type bulbs. I would have loved to have gone down the HID route, but in the UK they are illegal as an aftermarket kit, unless you have self levellers fitted, washers etc. Therefore it's too much of a pain to bother with.

Now, if you're thinking that I must have been sick of the sight of Alcantara at this point, you'd be right! :lol:

But, never one to let my emotions get in the way of good mod, I carried on.

Next, the dash. It was a horrible job. I swore in ways I didn't know were possible! But in the end it was worth it.

You will see some excess glue in these pics, as they were taken just minutes after. I prefer to let the adhesive cure properly before trying to remove it.
