I say leave it. I think the black on white looks sharp on your front end.

Agree. No offense as your mods so far look awesome, but something about the plastidip plate cover cheapens the overall look. May just be me though, but it throws it off a bit.

I think it is the higher profile plate holder that is throwing me off. Mine is pretty concealed with only the plate showing up front.ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1470236516.822572.jpg

Re: All white summit

Agreed, something about the holder didn't look quite right, which is why I plasti dipped it first to get an idea of how it will look. I removed the piece that covers the liscence plate and I feel it looks a lot better. I may eventually just get it paint matched by my body shop, what do you think? Does the white match close enough or does it need to be painted professionally?

Ordered some lowering links from JTS and theyll prob be here in a week or so. Will upload pics as soon as they're on!

I'm actually right there with you on the gloss black SRT reps. I've grown to dislike the 17 Summit wheels so will be quickly swapping them out withs some Spider Monkeys. Also hate the rake, so make sure to post some pics once you get those back springs put on 👍

Re: All white summit

I think it would have looked great with the grille rings and bezels black like you had wanted, but it doesn't look bad all white. Since it's all white, I think the license plate mount looks much better white than black. It seemed out of place with everything else being white and the PD on that one piece matches just fine. I also agree that it looks better without the cover on the plate.

Re: All white summit

Lowered 1" all around with custom made lowering links made and sent to me by JTS97Z28. Sorry for the shitty pic I'll try to get some in better lighting next time!

That looks awesome! Exactly how the stance should be from factory. Wheels, tint, k&n drop in and rake removal are the only mods I plan for my 17 Summit. Would love to know how much those ran you.

Have you noticed any difference in the ride, handling, etc?

Oh - got my 20" gloss black SRT reps earlier this week - loving them...now I just need the new ride - lmao!!

I'm pretty much doing the same mods as you plus paint matching and blacking out certain trim pieces and badges. the links cost me $160 shipped from JTS but you can easily make a set yourself for around $100. as far as i know, the links are the only way to lower the air suspension on the overland and summit models. there is pretty much no difference in feel as it is only a 1" drop, but the wheel well gaps look way better especially in park and aero mode

Re: All white summit

Yes you can make your own links for around $100. I'm making a lift set for mine (I know, you guys like them lowed but the process is the same), and I've got about $80-$90 into it.

And as you also noted, the only way I've found to adjust the height it via new links or an electronic unit that alters the sensors reading. That kit (made bay a guy in Australia IIRC), is about $300.
