First post! 2001 Grand Cherokee laredo
 
Whats up Im 17 and Ive owned my WJ since I was 16 been roaming this site for while but this is my first post.
Im looking to get some feedback on what you think of my Jeep. Ive done a few mods and Im looking to do a few more this summer.
So far Ive
-Exterior
Roof rack delete
tinted tail lights w/ led reverse lights
custom "JEEP" third brake light
tinted windows all around 20%
Gen 3 projector lights w/6000k hid lows
plastidipped WK wheels
plastidipped grille w/color matched inserts
red painted brake calipers

-Audio
Pioneer deck looking into doing a double din setup this summer
Pioneer 760w amp
2 12 inch Polk db series subs
Kicker KS 6.5s in all four doors
Pioneer 1 inch tweeters in the dash custom mount (pointed toward cabin for better sound)

Im sure Im sure im forgetting some things but keep in mind Im 17 and the car and all the mods are paid for by me.

Welcome to JeepGarage! Job well done!

Nice! 4.0 or 4.7?

I'm 16, got my 4.0 a couple months ago. Haven't done any cosmetic mods, but I've done a couple mechanical mods.


Great pictures by the way!

Thanks everyone! Can anyone recommend a good muffler? I have the 4.0 and Im looking for a nice deep growl as close to a V8 sound as possible.

Just so you know...you probably won't ever get a "V8" sound out of that 4.0. If you want a throatier sound, I've heard that putting on a CAI(cold air intake) can do that, and maybe a little more horsepower/torque.

Nice work! Looks good...

I've had good luck running Borla mufflers on the 4.0L (on my TJ and my XJ), but you're not getting a V8 sound out of it. It sounds a lot healthier, but not quite as deep as a V8.

I know asking for a V8 sound is a far stretch Im just looking to stay away from a honda sound. Ive heard good things about flowmaster 40 series mufflers. Anyone running one? Also anyone know where I can get 20in gloss black srt reps w/ tires? Thanks.

There are plenty of guys running the Flowmaster here, so I'm sure you'll hear from them. I've only used Borla and am now running a Magnaflow because I insist on stainless steel for anything exhaust related. That's what I get for living in the rust belt.

The SRT reps are available from our suppliers. Check out the vendor section of this forum. I got mine here: OE Wheels LLC - Jeep Garage - Jeep Forum
