So i decided to start one of these build threads since my jeep got an unwanted facelift. Im pretty sure this thread name wasnt used, i searched, if it was please greats mods let me know.

Before the accident i was content with my jeep and did have future plans for her but did only minor mods due to funds and honestly i was happy with her.

Since this accident i am now bare on my front end i figured now is the time to go about my plans. although i have to wait for insurance etc etc, i already see that i want to go with a more usuable front and rear bumper and get rid of the stock fogs and go with hellas to help with clearance. i probably wont lift her this year but i do need new tires and with def go ahead with some BFG ATs.

I did do some minor mods as stated above. first was my Hella Ecode H4 Conversions

Project Ressurection-0116011110.jpg

Here is my before Silver stars

Project Ressurection-0219151424.jpg

And then my after Hellas. im running these housings with some silver star ultra H4s and alone they were good but as with any XJ, upgrade your wiring harness. After the harness i love these housing. they did cost me a lil but if you dont want HIDs these are a good way to go. clean even light and itll get thrown all around ya

I dont have these pics on my pc right now so when i dissamble my front end, pics of that will come also, ill take pics of my HD wiring harness.

Any questions feel free to message me anytime

These are the connectors that go into your headlights.

And its easy to tie down the harness under your grill.

Some pics i didnt take were the ground for the bulbs and i put those right behind the bulbs to chassis and there is a connector on the harness that goes to the driver side headlight harness which turns the harness on when you turn the headlights on. this harness corrects the voltage drop and will make your headlights brighter

Also redid my exhaust. Put a new walker dual cat a few months back and just recently redid my muffler back with a dynomax

Changed out my plugs a few weeks back

And finally here is my flashlight mount and GC shift handle.



Project Ressurection-image-520801839.jpg

I also have some decal that aren't in my phone that I need to take new pics of.


So this Is my girl right now for all of you to see. Next I wanna do my pads and rotors, map sensor and o2 sensor and need news tires too. I have big plans and, with bills, a small wallet but as I mod her up I'll post it here. Hopefully some of you can get some ideas along the way

Today I did some body work and replaced my fender and header panel. Didn't feel like painting the panel so I'll take it apart another day to sand prime and paint. For now I'm happy she's whole again. Should be getting my custom rock crawler bumper next week, can't wait for that

Thanks, I was hoping I would have more progress but my girl always want to spend time when she's not at work since she works 12 hr days. I took the fog light off before so it looks a lil normal lol and during the week I wanna relocate the horns and the vacuum canister so I can cut the fender lining next
