WJ Jeep Thing (New Pic 5/1/19)

Here's my 2000 WJ Laredo.

That's right started running it in California and now I live in Illinois. So far I've been putting stuff on it while I can (more like afford). 2" BB with the upcountry gives me something between 3" and 2" of lift so that would be 2 1/2". ;) Rock rails were free of my boss's overland. Got JKS quicker discos, rear ADDCO sway, Limited head lights. Wilderness rack is second hand, sport'n the Harbor Freight & Tool "Farm Jack", the shovel was left behind by the previous homeowner. So budget build for sure. Now on to the pics.

Below is my first midwestern run where I discovered it's a little different than Cali. Good thing there is always someone there to take you pic. Lots of Wranglers in our club.

Now after I BOLTED on the plastic bumper I can wheel with more confidence. OEM plastic clips are a bad idea! Great pics of the WJ in these, Look I see Jack too!

Oh, the dew rag air filter is because my air box was full of muddy water. Almost hydro-locked it!

Here is our latest, our club was in a parade, the blue WJ's build is moving along faster than mine. Makes me want to go faster, but the house drains a lot of $$ 'cause I'm fixing it up too.

Well that's it for now, I'll build it up as I can. The WJ just graduated to a weekend vehicle with the addition of my wife's new um...minivan. Be gentle, I'll post as it improves.

Looks good, I am glad that you didn't hydrolock it! Looks like you are having a lot of fun with it, and it looks like y'all have a good club! [smilie=bal_cool.gif]

Thanks, these are some of my favorite pics.

Pretty much stock here Overland Rails are on.



This is what it looks like now after I installed the lift, new tires, & other goodies.



Action photo, the guy standing behind me told me my mirror was almost touching the water and you can tell by the wet mud mark!

Well, I did hydro it about a month after that post. Now I'm really tennative about any wheeling where it is wet or close quarters. :-|

Plus I'm back in school after 10 years of being out so not much time anyway. Oh well, life goes on.

Thanks I think so too!

My boy wants his whole room decorated in Jeeps and always picks out his Jeep stuff for Mommy to put him in.

My girl just likes riding with the moon roof open as you can see.

Thanks for the good words!

The cooling system is the same and so far no problems, it runs at the same temp it always did before. If it does have some issues I'll install some supplimental electric fans to push more air.

Well you came close, they are Thule. The imitation is flattering :lol: Besides, I couldn't just throw them away.
