Figured I might as well just start my own build thread instead of creating new thread when I add a mod or 2. Well I received a very nice X-Mas bonus on Wednesday, so you know I had to show my Jeep some love! Pics arent the best, just snapped some quick shitty ones and some of them I was pretty drunk in my garage last night. Here is what was done since Wed, most of the mods already done, but waiting on a couple more things in the mail.

All white catch can, bought from Speedlogix for 50% so couldnt pass that deal up. Not staying white, will probably paint or PC black.

Ordered a DRL Harness, basically this will turn on the led ribbon around my headlights on when my DRL's are on. Normally that led ribbon is only on when headlights are on. (waiting for this)

Ordered black lug nuts, why the fuck Chrysler would put chrome lugs on black chrome rims is beyond me??? (waiting for this)

Ordered black grill rings to replace chrome grill rings on the grill. On back order thru the dealer for about a month because they were just released on the 15 Vapor Edition

Ordered and installed last night black jeep and black SRT emblem for tailgate. Came chrome from the factory.

De-Badged the chrome Jeep on hood and chrome Grand Cherokee off the 2 front doors. Had to be one of the hardest de-badge jobs I have ever done. I could not believe how much of that black glue/sticky shit is on these newer badges. Lots of elbow grease to get this job done last night, I mutha fucked everyone, lol

Xtreme did my roof, shark fin antenna, window trim, and lower grill rings in gloss black vinyl, and did the SRT inlay or hitch cover in white. Much cleaner look especially on window trim, window trim was chrome on top and bottom.


Pics coming in 2 minutes

Lower trim rings (lower grill in corners) done in gloss black. This is also prior to me de-bagding the hood

Black SRT on tailgate, this is why you shouldnt do shit when your fucking hammered. spacing is a tad bit off. These come as separate pieces not one emblem so you gotta get it rite. I'm very surprised how even the tops of letters are considering how drunk I was

Catch can, again will be painting or PC black. Not a fan of the white but its the only one they had at 50% off that will fit my Jeep.

looks good. It sucks that the Jeep emblem on the back is sunk in like that. It would look much nicer if you could just remove it like you did up front.

Agreed 100%, not only is it sunk in, there are 2 holes behind it that the emblem lines up with

I can't leave shit alone. I make it my own asap, especially with the X Mas bonus I got this year! It's a the dealer rite now getting some recall work done and I got a ton of compliments from the service writers and techs. They all loved the black roof and window trim.

Jeep looks great!

Funny how removing some badges and changing the color scheme cleans it up.

Black grill rings came in today, just put them on, huge difference over the chrome rings imo.

So I put a down payment on my rims on Monday. Pete from Zygote hooked me up and locked me in on a holiday sale price. I have as long as I need to pay for the rims. I had money stashed away for my rims from selling my truck but dipped in to it to re-model our basement bathroom. So I might just take that money I have left and buy lowering springs, end links, and bigger rear control arms. Then just take my sweet time paying a little bit a month on rims. I'm undecided between 2 rims, leaning towards the first pic but only if its as deep as 2nd pic.

I like them both, but the second ones are more interesting to me. Either will look great when you get them.
