I wanted to start one of these when I first got my WK a year ago but never got around to it.

Here is the ride I gave up for my 2005 WK1 Limited.

1999 Wrangler 4.0 with 4 inch pro comp lift. Beastly on the trails. Not so friendly for a growing family.

I purchased my 2005 WK1 off somebody who had started to do the SRT8 Mods. It came with a SRT8 Front bumper, SRT8 20" Rims, SRT8 Blistein Shocks and Bwoody Springs, SRT8 Front and Rear Swaybars, and SRT8 Roof Rack.

If google is to be trusted, this is what she looked like out of the factory

Here she is the first day I got her.

Here is another after she was detailed.

Shortly after I added a Mopar Cold Air Intake and Bought a Superchips tuner to help her get up and going.

The 2005 Nav unit was slow and outdated. My wife's car had the new Mygig and I was looking for something similar. After research on here I purchased a 08 Rer Mygig on ebay, a bezel to fit it in the old nav slot, and a Lockpick adapter.

The Old Junker

Almost Done.

Done and testing it out

I then purchased a 6k HID kit, LED Reverse Lights and LED Interiors Kit off of a member on here. The reverse lights didn't work since it was an 08 model and I had an 05, but they worked in my wife's Patriot.

Browsing the forums I then found a local guy selling a Black Ops CarbonFiber Venom Hood. So I met up with him and purchased it. After some minor adjustments I got it on with the help of my neighbor.

I finally got around to adding the LED Fog Lights and Highbeams. Unfortunately they flicker when off and I have removed them until I find a fix.

I recently purchased a SRT8 Grill, Black Ops Headlight Covers, SRT8 Pedals, Catch can, and swapped my Superchips for a Diablosport Predator. Will update once I get them installed.

for the most part yes. there's days when i get no sound and i have to pop the fuse to get it to work. i don't know if it's the mygig unit i got off ebay or the adaptor though.
