Hello from Canada Eh!!!!

Hey guys,

Pretty new here and just wanted to share what I got , what I am doing to it , and what I've done to it so far.

My wife and I got rid of my Saturn Astra for a Stone white 2011 GC limited. I will say I was debating on getting a Touareg since I work for Volkswagen service department but the style and design of the Grand Cherokee won me over... well also the fact the Touareg's have scary electrical issues that I don't want to deal with . But that is besides the point. :P

So far I have upgraded the factory DS1 HiD's to 5500 k which are amazing , 5000 k hid fog's ,all the interior bulbs to led's , drl led's, and need to yet smoke tail light with vinyl tint.

I just ended up ordering my 1.5 wheel spacers, rear jk .75 inch leveling bushing, and front 1.5 tuff country leveling kit . Kind of an early christmas gift to myself..... just don't tell the wife.lol

I'm really on edge for the wheels though. I was inspired though by simonvez's GC and love the tires he chose so I got my parts manager to price me out some Ko2's and I am sold..lol

Future upgrades:

20inch rims
bfgoodrich k02's
removal of side chrome molding and hood emblem
addition of 2015 gc door name badges
hitch receiver with red d-ring
cut and polish exterior
ceramic coat the exterior
darker tint on back windows and tint on front window
dash cam
paint the inner portion of the headlights
rear fog light set up
and I am debating making a custom roof led bar setup to look like the rangerover in Spectre. I'm going to have to do some photoshopping and see how it looks then design something and create a mold if things work out.

Re: Hello from Canada Eh!!!!

It's gonna look great with the new wheels and tires! When you get them installed, could you please take a couple pics directly from the front and back to show how the new tires sit in the wheelwells with the wheel spacers?

Well I got the tires and rims on. Had an issue with one of my spacers so I'm getting it sent out for warranty . I think the wheels and tires look freaking sweet and complement the look of the jeep .
