Sooooo about time I get my own build gives me a reason to look back on how far I've come. So let's get started... REMINDER: I don't have many before and after pics so please forgive me.. Let's get started down memory lane...

An 06 Jeep Grand Cherokee dead stock

She didn't last long before I got her windows tinted limo in the back and 35 in the front if I'm correct

After I installed a K&N intake plan on changing it later on to another one I'll let y'all know ;)

I decided what route to take... Either I could go street or off road... I decided a bit of both something different I decided to go with the 18in Black Mamba MR1 wheels CURRENTLY wrapped in Goodyear Silent Armor tires (245/65r17) donated by my good bud Josh thanks !

I also plasti dipped the grille and installed my fog lights. Got a custom switch that goes to the right on the steering wheel I like it came with a black one but the voltage kept frying it so got this neat looking one :)

I do plan on painting the washer black :)

After I did a full LED interior job red in the back for my people who like to sleep don't shine the light in their face lol

After this I honestly forgot I think I did an exhaust job at first I did the flowmaster 40 series without a catback later on I teamed up with my team of bad influences (Jeff and Josh) and got a custom catback 2.5 exhaust job done keeping the flowmaster had a chrome tip but took that shit off and went classy with a black Gibson exhaust tip recommended by Hasan

I did receive a pair of smoked out fog lights from my buddy Connor along with my ported TB that I currently have on my pictures :)

After that I got some chrome side moldings provided by my good buddy Nick once again plastidipped them black and came out great also plan on getting them painted gloss black

I also changed out my headlights and make them HIDs a while back but I started out with 6k HIDs but decided I liked the 8k HID output color better they look outstanding

While all the lighting was being changed around I decided to change my reverse lights to LED reverse lights picture coming soon! Lol

I think one of the last few mods I did which is fairly recent has to be the TB I got Connor ported and polished he does amazing work for a great price finally grew the pair and put it on freaked out a couple of times till I got it on right and fit like a glove got amazing acceleration for all 3.7 peeps this is a MUST mod. :)

I installed a remote start for the jeep as well

And my last mod I did was the 2008 headlights which got my head going for a 2008 front end conversion

Mods to come:

- JBA Headers

Looks good man. You should check out the steel armadillo switch panel tho. Much cleaner. You can see it in this pic where the pointless little cubby used to be to the left of the steering wheel

The switch panel doesn't come with the rocker switches. So go buy the switches you want and just run your pre-existing wires to the new switch. I have my red grille leds ran to one of the switches on the panel

I'm going to get it definitely. Only problem there will a hole where my current switch is at lol. Looks like a great investment though

Mine is flat. Google search 06 with double din and you might be able to find a bezel that fits to run a double din
Found a kit that makes it look like a double din was meant to go there and a bezel will run me 100+
