Hey guys it's been a while since I've been on here so got a lot to update. The Chevy I've been daily driving is no longer in my ownership, instead I had bought a really good (at the time) 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo: 4.0L automatic, 3:73 gears, 231 transfer case, it's a split year as well, being built 9/28/1994. I paid a glorious total of $400 for this Jeep with a lowish mileage readout of 147,xxx miles on the clock. They were gonna scrap this Jeep and I decided to resurrect it at the last second when I grenaded the Chevy transmission again.

so for the very first things that had to get done were the front CV axles, oil pan gasket, fuses replaced, bulbs replaced, front hub replacement, sway bar bushing,, exhaust pipe had to be redone, and I grabbed some tires for it since the 225s were well worn. From there I ended up replacing all the control arms, replacing all the sway bar links, the sway bar, the rear stabilizer bar, all the brake pads, the transfer case got swapped out after we found out the chain was bad and the chain had worn on the inside of the case. Fixed the radiator multiple times, redid the thermostat and the housing, new water pump, spark plugs, wireset, distributor cap and rotor, fuel filter, I ended up cutting off the cat and throwing on a super 10 which is on it now, my father helped me redo the rear window in a better plastic because reasons. I ended up adding on a few lights on the Jeep and some interior lighting strips. I also redid the speakers in the Jeep since whoever had it before hacked the speaker harnesses.

And that's everything up to the present. I'll be adding more as the repairs and modifications continue on it!
