    So far, none. Just repairing. Oh! Tinted headlights!
    My name is Josh.

    Back in 1993 or so, my first vehicle was a 1985 XJ Cherokee I inherited when my parents bought a van for the family. At 83hp, it did 0-60 in 20 seconds and was the perfect vehicle for a teenage boy to learn driving and wrenching.

    During my senior year of highschool, I was hit head-on by a Camaro on the highway. Not my fault and got money for my second vehicle, a 1976 CJ5 that the owner began building, and ran out of money for.

    I ended up rebuilding that engine properly, and overbuilding it a bit. It had a fiberglass tub and no rear seat or tailgate, so I just turned the rear into a speaker box with four 12" subs.

    A fun vehicle, I ultimately was putting too much power through it. I blew the rearend a couple times (AMC 20; could never find a Dana 44 of the correct size.) Ended up selling it and buying a Blazer.

    I ran with Blazers for the next three vehicles.

    When my last Blazer was totaled on August 10 of this year (not my fault; dude forgot to stop and rammed my butt end), I decided to go back to Jeeps for a bit. Found a Grand Cherokee and began tearing into it.

    It's good to be here.

    Regards,
    Josh

    I might. Need to take pics; not sure how far I'm going with it yet, though. Indiana isn't known for its abundance of trails, though I'd like to find some open fire roads to take the kids on.

    Plans include a lunchbox locker and maybe a 2" lift. I was trained in electronic engine controls back in the day, and find the progress made really cool. I'd therefore like to find a computer program that'll let me into the ECU through my laptop. The flash packs I'm seeing are nice, but seem limited to pre-programmed flashes.

    Regards,
    Josh
