Well as the I said this is my 5th Jeep, started at 16 with an XJ, had 2 ZJ's, and now 2 WJ's.
I do not have a pics of the XJ.
Jeep #2

Jeep #3

Jeep #4

And lucky #5!
This is what it looked like when I bought it.

Tinted the front window (first time tinting myself)

Put some switch-back LED's in it.

Then HID fogs.

Here are some mud pics with my ZJ and my WJ before I sold the ZJ

My buddy in the mud

Both clean

Now added the roof rack and a 2" BB.

The first ZJ was a 94 and I blew up the 318 and had gotten a 5.9L with about 60k for free so I threw that in, the tranny went out about 8 months later, waited a year, put a used one in from the JY and heading to work that Monday some lady took a left turn and ran her red light and T-boned me. Ended up rolling it a couple times.

The second ZJ I was still young and dumb and financed a 2000, drove out to WA after putting a 2" on it and took out a phone pole, tree, and a fence going too fast.

Thrid Jeep I actually sold, picked it up in Seattle for $1,400 and sold for $3,200 after a little work, only pay cash for em now. Seattle is a good place to get some CHEAP ZJ and WJ's!!!

I was bored and showing a friend how to change his oil on Saturday so deceided to make my third brake light into an LED light instead of paying $130 for one on ebay.

I started with a couple of regular strips of LEDs I bought off ebay a while back, I only had red left though.

I cut off the back of the stock light.

It still looks stock when its off.

But now it has 33 LEDs :)

Rock lights!

Finally had a chance to put my rock lights on!!!
Here is where I mounted my switch, I decided to just use one switch for all the rock lights.

And here are the lights.

I had a few left over so put one under the hood and used the factory switch.

Here is where I put my two relays.

I bought a second grille so I can change between an all black grille and a black grille with chrome inserts, I had gotten this grill cheap and have to paint it then cut the current grille off.

I had to remove the chrome trim rings first.

All removed


Did some more sanding of the grille, primed and painted today, also cut the old grille off using Iroc's method he suggested and cutting it off with a razor blade and it worked pretty good. Need to clean it up and will post pics once I get off work.

I have a sticker under the hood of my jeep stating that this same recall has been completed. However, it had already been done before I bought the jeep.

"TTB LT265/70R17E BSW All Season Tires"

Here is another thing I noticed, I didn't think any of the 99's came with 17's. I know I definately do not have 17's.
Plus it says it came with 16"x 7" wheels. Not sure how they put 17" tires on there.

I love seeing everyone's build sheets. It looks like we all had power rack and pinion steering from the factory :D

The grill looks like it is ready for paint.

How was it separating the factory grille? Give you any trouble?

No, it was very easy, took maybe 5-10min. I still need to clean it up a little. I ran out of time and had to go to work but when I get home I will post some pics, finish painting, then mount the new one after cleaning up the bumper and original grill a little with the die grinder or dremel.
