Modifying a stock 2000 WJ to better fit my needs. Keeping it simple by bolting, spraying and sticking stuff to it.
First is to replace all 4 coil springs and shocks.
Then painted the wheels metallic black. Time consuming due to all the prep work.

Previous owner mentioned the AC discharge is leaking into passenger cabin. Fixed that with a piece of hose and a clamp. Looking under carpet I found puddles of water but no rust. So out with the carpet. Laid it out in the sun and took a few days to dry out.

Sold it and picked up the WJ for half of what I sold the XJ for. It is nice but I have lost the cool factor the XJ had.
