General Information

Wrangler, 4.0L
Silverstone Metallic
Bought off craigslist, all stock w/hard top and manual tranny. Am slowly repairing & building it up on my minimum wage budget.... it will be a very slow process. *sigh* Original owner did not disclose all of the Jeep's issues, so some came as a surprise later. Some issues where obvious when I inspected and test drove it.

So far have fixed the mechanical things the original owner neglected: brakes (paper-thin and highly warped), loose rear traction bar, new clutch, new radiator & hoses, new inner & outer shifter boots and bezel (originals broken), new battery, all fluids changed (always, just in case), U-joints, new tires (originals were bald), new oil cap (original seized & broke), grind out & repaint rusty floor boards because Jeep leaks bad (trying to find and fix the sources), new rear hatch struts, trying to find source of super angry tea kettle scream always after 3 miles of driving, removed moldy and worn-bare carpet (investigating replacement options). Fog lights and radio head unit/speakers (powers on but no sound) don't function; haven't looked into these yet since I have more important issues to fix first. Engine had 225,xxx miles on it when I bought it, and seems to run strongly, other than the tea kettle squeal.

Goal is to eventually build this into a snow monster, because I love snow. Haha.
2001 Jeep Wrangler, 4.0L (Silverstone Metallic)


Rockknob shift knob! Best b-day present, ever. LOL.
Homemade peddle extenders, because I'm 4'11".
New side mirrors and fender flares (both stock style, originals were weirdly white-grey with age), clear marker lights, Fishbone front winch bumper with built-in LED lights. Got a Warn winch now!
Wheel and Tire
BF Goodrich K02, stock size for now. Really happy with these. Excellent winter performance.
