    other Logan's niner/build but not built thread

    since I haven't been active on here and i don't feel like studying for my environmental engineering test tomorrow why not make a little thread. so bought the niner March 2012 on my spring break from college, kind of an impulse buy but always wanted one and decided it was time for my first "own" car. I paid $2740 for it with 149k, K&N, Jet chip (immediately sold), 242 swap, aftermarket tail lights that I actually like, and a Mumford & Sons CD in the receiver. Here's how it looked when I got it:

    as you can see the grille was pretty faded as was the plastic piece on the rear bumper so I painted them both black

    next thing was new headlights to match, along with the best bulbs sylvania made, light output is better than original but the bulb upgrade was done simultaneously

    Alpine 12" Type-S sub 500w RMS, Sony mono black amp 600w RMS, and a Sony headunit...those couple weeks without the sub were hell, I've always had some bass. This set up sounds great, clean sound and not too much or annoying and can obviously be turned up and down from the driver seat

    this is where things got boring for a bit, sophomore year of school and I didn't need the Jeep at school so it stayed at my dad's and he worked on it when he was bored. He put in new front axles and boots, spark plugs, fixed a broken sway bar link, recharged the AC, other boring stuff and drove it once a week to keep it alive while I was gone. oh and pops threw on a magnaflow muffler as an xmas present and the cat was taken out at the time mostly because it was shit and I plan on going 3" eventually so didn't wanna drop $100 on a cat at the time (I'm poor)

    then about a year ago I plasti dipped the rims at 2 in the morning in my apartments parking lot haha turned out pretty good but made everything that wasn't black extra ugly

    FINALLY got my white letters gone, picked up 4 Michelin LTX with over half tread for $50 but they're skinny so I'll burn through them quick

    first time clay barring it, polished, waxed, just about every inch of it was cleaned very well. Took all day but had good music and cold beer

    got curious and put on some little strip LEDs to give it a modern look like the new grand cherokees have, I liked just the horizontal strip so decided to wire them with a switch instead of just to the fogs and that's where things got bad...

    second pic is stock for reference, 1.5" wheel spacers put on to give it a better "stance"...I hated how fat it looked with the wheels inside the wells so much

    I know I'm forgetting stuff but it's a good highlight of the "progress" so far. It's been mostly cheap cosmetic stuff and fixing broken things but now that she's running good and it tax return season I should finally start some race jeep stuff, plenum plate and 52mm from Brian are first on the list along with 703s
