2012 5.7 Jeep Grand Cherokee Build/Progress Thread

Hi Everyone!
I'm based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and have been here a while. I think it's time I have a build/progress thread to update y'all on what's happened and going to happen on my ride.

Mods done are as follows:
1. Corsa Cat Back Exhuast
2. K&N F.I.P Kit
3. Diablo Intune w/ Hemifever tune
4. 22" Rims
5. Adjustable Air Ride Links (2"-3" drop)

Mods to be completed:
1. Custom Front Bumper
2. Custom Rear Bumper
3. Custom Vented Hood
4. Subtle Widebody Flares
5. Quad Exhuast Tips
6. Custom Matte Grey Metallic Paint

I just got the Adjustable Air Ride links installed today, and here's a photo of the output.


I shall update this post with photos later this week. Stay Tuned and thanks for dropping by

Very nice for street usage. It does look very nice for a warmer weather climate. We get too much snow and ice for such a low bumper/air dam but it looks great.

Who makes those wheels? They look a lot like the 21's that come on Cayenne Turbo's (not the Turbo-2 wheel)...looks great! Post some more pics...before and after drop?

The climate can get VERY hot here, about 51'C hence I'm opting for a vented hood to let off some hot air from the bay.

Yes, they are Porsche rims.

This is a very old one, before any mods haha!


And here is before installing the air-ride

Thought I'd update this thread.

I'm finally in the process of putting together a custom body kit and the work shall commence later this month.

Here is a shot I took this afternoon of how it stands today.
