Year: 2002
Model: Grand Cherokee Limited (WJ)
Engine: 4.7 H.O.
Mods/Custom Stuff:
- 4" Lift
- 35x12.5x15 Hankook Dynapro MT
- Homegrown fender flares to be street legal in PA
- Moog HD drag link and tie rod
- Rola roof rack with extension welded in place (taken off during non-camping season)
- Homegrown rock sliders 2"x5" 3/16 rectangular tube steel with 1.5" rub rails replaced stock rocker panels.
- Hidden winch mount with shackle tabs, 9000lbs Engo winch, synthetic line, powered from house battery
- Access door in grill to reach winch clutch and maintain stock look
- Rear hitch shackle mount as recovery point
- House battery (120AH AGM) in spare tire wheel well, DEP Systems VSR battery isolator, 300A continuous, 1500A for 10 seconds, manual emergency parallel button on dash.
- BlueSea Systems Power distribution and fuse block in spare wheel well
- LED light pods, 10degree spots in front, 60degree flood in back, each pod individually switched on dash to also use them as camp illumination, LED pods run off the house battery.
- Refrigerator mounted inside the cabin, runs off a pure sinewave inverter on the house battery
- External power connections in gas door on the passenger side: 110V/15A in - to charge house battery with built in charger, 12V/15A in - to charge batteries with solar panels (or other external charging solution), 12V/20A out - to provide power to accessories (tire inflator, shower pump).
- Homegrown solar panels
- different variations of homegrown awnings mounted to the roof rack
- Homegrown storage system in trunk with removable flight cases for easy packing, and access door to spare wheel well
- Jeep Commander head unit to have aux-input but maintain stock(ish) head unit, custom build bezel
- Orange blaze camo interior accents to replace wood accents
- LED interior lighting
- Rear seat cushion (wire lock pin) quick remove mod
- CB mounted in place of ash ray
- Carved out the cup holder to actually hold cups (i guess the cups that his holders where engineered for went out of style, the modern cups are either to small or too big)
- Homegrown fishing rod holder on passenger side that mounts to rear seat over-head handle and kids seat ancor point in trunk.
- Paracord braid handles on back of front seats for the kids to get in the vehicle.
- Rear hatch spare tire mount
- Homegrown air intake with oversized filter
- 4-hole-injector upgrade
- Overhead hat "rack" at/under/in sun roof recess
- Screened rear door windows to stay bug free when they remain open

Other Info:
The vehicle is my DD and camping and offroad rig. It's enough to fit my family of 4 including gear and supplies for 1 week primitive camping. I drive it to work every day and get average 14mpg. It does not back down if you throw some rocks or mud in our way.
Things to come:
- Android tablet integration with external GPS antenna, radio receiver, backup camera, and audio DAC
- trussed and gusseted front and rear axles with 4.56 gears and lockers
- maybe very expensive long arms with front and rear crossmembers
