UPDATES!!!!!!!!!!!

Well... Sorta.

Okay. So I got the Cherokee dyno'd (as you can see in the above post) to get a "baseline" dyno with my Volant CAI and Magnaflow cat-back exhaust.

On a side note, I GOT MY AIR CONDITIONING FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Like I said. I'm afraid of the dark.

Lol.

I haven't gotten around to installing the fox shocks yet, but I'll probably get around to it this weekend. I do have high hopes for them though.

And I should be getting a big box of epic on Monday.

Hey man nice clean jeep. I got a question though, you said you did a cruise control upgrade with a grand cherokee steering wheel and a 96 cherokee vacuum servo. I would like to know how you did it and how hard was it to do? I have a 99 cherokee classic that I just picked up that I would like to put cruise control in. I also have a 96 cherokee classic that has cruise control that I can steel it from to do the job. But would like to know how you did it? Any help would be very appreciated. Thanks.

They only come with 21w bulbs... I'm going to replace them with about $10 worth 55w white bulbs and see where it gets me. I'll post pics at night when they're done and I have the brighter bulbs in them.
