Default 99 Police Pkg XJ Steroid Build

Well for starters, I bought the Jeep on April 5,2011 on municibid.com from my local township. I paid right around $3300 for it after taxes and transfer fees. She had 76,703 Miles on it when I first started her up and saved her from the township. When I bought the XJ, I had just got a new job so I had some money coming in to buy goodies for it and I was just laid off of my new job last week for no given reason so this build thread is gonna go pretty slow until I find a new job. Thanks for checking my build out! She WILL be big and badarse one day but for now she's gonna have to stay a little thing.

This is how she spent 11+ years of her life. Garage Kept!! I am the second owner!


Vinyl Floor Mats

Getting Stickered Up

Window Sticker

First Mod was this Alpine headunit

Ran the usb wire for it back behind the headunit and underneath of the center consoles plastics.

Next it was time to take out the headliner and fix the holes from these antennas





And this is what I'm slowly heading towards but probably bigger. I don't know whos Jeep this is but I'm in love with it so I stole the picture lol. I hope yinz guys(and gals) enjoyed the beginning of this build as its going to get pretty darn interesting! I highly suggest subscribing :2thumbsup:

Ain't nothing JB weld can't fix haha



Since the headliner was out and showed early signs of sagging I took the liberty to replace it with something more my style





Got the winders tinted!


Took the reflective tape strips off and added some much needed Pittsburgh Love

Loving the Steelers/Pirates stickers. I'm from Canonsburg about 30 miles South. Loving the ride- must be a manual with the 21 hwy mpg rating?

Drunkin Dixie- It has an extended idle switch,vinyl mats and heavy duty trans cooler and some other crap I can't remember but will post one of these days. The fronts are 50% and the rears are 20%. The legal limit for the fronts is 75% but they were to light for my liking so I went a smidge darker.

IZAREBL-thanks! Its an auto and yep it has 4 wheel drive. I really wish it was a manual though.

jt07- I kind of liked them myself but they had to go when I decided that I was going to bedline the exterior when I got some money to do it plus it looks a heck of a lot cleaner to me.

breakthecyle128- Thanks! Shes actually an automatic which sucks but I still love her. I have some family up your way. I've never been up to their house but I know they live up there somewhere lol

Rhutchinson609-haha I'm painting them for now and I'm going to replace them when she gets lifted with some dc's prob.

bew311xj- Damn thats pretty close! PM coming your way

highwater- thanks bro! it means alot!!
