1) Akebono caliper upgrade kit front

These will be a worthwhile mod since your pretty much saving from replacing pads/rotors constantly.

2)G2 caliper paint (what color???)

White :D If not then black.


3)Another set of projector headlights with LEDs in black and OEM cover

This is going to be hard for one reason: Ensuring a good seal. If you remember Hannes did the same thing but had to junk them because they kept fogging up.


4)detail with meguiers 105,205 followed by poorboys wax

:thumbsup:

5)K&N CAI

This is another good mod, creates a nice sound :thumbsup:

6)performace fan, cooler, radiator (recomendations appreciated)

No clue :confused:

7)redo the interior... black carpet, suade headliner, black with white stiching seats and the plastic painted black. (ideas and pics examples please :))


That would be awesome :thumbsup:


8)eibach anito roll bar and springs lowering kit package

Noice :thumbsup:

9)Alarm and audio upgrade (sugestions?)

I'd stick with Viper or Clifford in terms of alarms. For audio, Im trying to figure that out myself. Are you looking for SPL or SQ. Do you need trunk space?

10)upgrade dana 35 to 44

11)15% tint in front and 70% on windsheild 30% on the rest (help me out here too i want it to be dark but to be able to see out at night)

12) laredo side skirts PTM


thats all i can tink of as right now btw it not in order im would be doin it

I completely forgot his user name, but he got into an accident and he found all the 04' Front End parts his shop did the conversion.

Great mod. Maybe do the flexi-pipes at the same time if they are the originals...

2)G2 caliper paint (what color???)

Red - to match Eibach sways etc.

3)Another set of projector headlights with LEDs in black and OEM cover

Sounds good.

4)detail with meguiers 105,205 followed by poorboys wax

Zaino on white looks dynamite but yeah PBs make good wax, just prefer sealants (Any sealant) on lighter colors.

5)K&N CAI

Hell yeah!

6)performace fan, cooler, radiator (recomendations appreciated)

Aside from the fan, is the rest really required?

7)redo the interior... black carpet, suade headliner, black with white stiching seats and the plastic painted black. (ideas and pics examples please :))

I was gonna ask you for a example pic, sounds awesome! :thumbsup:

8)eibach anit roll bar and springs lowering kit package with bilsteins shocks ( anyone interested in two rear edelbrock shocks??)

I want the Eibach says too, they look great in red! Springs and shocks will really improve the handling. Can you link me to the Bilstein shocks?

9)Alarm and audio upgrade (sugestions?)

I like the OEM look, so I'd say RB-1. Although some of the 7" flip-outs look insanely tempting, can't offer any advice though.

10)upgrade dana 35 to 44

11)15% tint in front and 70% on windsheild 30% on the rest (help me out here too i want it to be dark but to be able to see out at night)

12) laredo side skirts PTM

That'll really finish off the exterior of that awesome WJ of yours man!

9)Alarm and audio upgrade (sugestions?)

1. The flexi-pipes run from the main metal hoses to the callipers. They are made of rubber and as such the internals of the pipes can deteriorate over time. I got all of mine changed out and they weren't all that much for the Mopar ones I'd guess $80 for the two fronts.

2. Yeah, definitely look into sealants. Poorboys EX-P, Meguairs #22 (IIRC), Zaino Z2-PRO, etc. If you do go for wax though, I'd get a bottle of Meguairs #7 Show Car Glaze, it is amazing on light colors!!!

3. Just do it and put it into pictures!! :lol:

4. Is that for 4 or per shock. I'm not going to buy them ATM as I'm recovering from the amount of cash I've wasted on the brakes but they are next on my list - then its more power.

5. Check car-part.com and eBay regularly, some junk yard may just under-estamte the value. I have the RB-3 which is the export version and although I love how it fits in, I wish I had a 7" flip-out number for iPod integration with full on album art etc too though. Burning CDs every month or so gets boring.
