I believe those wheels are called "canyon"s but I'm not absolutely sure. I think they came on the TJ wranglers.
I know the ones that came on the Grand Cherokees didn't have the "Jeep" in the center caps.

I have been building the JCR Offroad DIY bumper in my metals class as a final project, this was the first pic with all the parts bent and welded besides the one end on the left.

This is the current state from this morning. Only the front is primered because I can't do my mounting brackets at school so I only painted the front for now. When it's all said and done they will be painted in black bed liner.

Yeah, it was a kit that only needed to be bent and welded together but most 14 year olds aren't even checking the oil in their own cars.

The body is going to be green bedliner, like HulkXJ if you are familiar with him, and the bumpers will be black bedliner, as well as the bottom portion of the body.

The Jeep is currently down, with a bad alternator. We burnt it up with my stereo system lol. Giant MTX amplifier and a 15 inch MTX sub, in a custom built ported box. I am stuck driving a Toyota Highlander, still faster than the XJ. We will be trying to change my alternator on sunday, as long as we can find one at a parts store. Hulk says it can be changed with normal hand tools so I hope that is true.

Dang Kids! Dont let the sound system be your e-peen!

that said, i actually need to put new speakers in mine, the driver door one is blown. I like the look of the stock radio too, but dang if a CD player or aux input wouldnt be nice.

In any case, i guess nows a good time to upgrade the alternator!

Yeah, I have a newer stereo in it, but my speakers are still stock, but they are an odd size so we have left them be for now. My dad used to do sub woofer competitions and he built all of his setups, so he knew a thing or two when we built mine.

Great looking vehicle! Can you tell me anything about the green accents in the headlights? I'm gonna feel really stupid if that's just some quirk of the camera...

I was definitely one of the 14-year-olds who only knew how to check my oil. Props to you for doing all of this work on your Jeep!
