Re: My 2012 Overland SRT Hybrid

Thanks Chad, still loving it, thanks again for the great product. Jeep fans definitely do a double take when they see it. Someone thought it was a 2014 model the other day.

Re: My 2012 Overland SRT Hybrid

I like your look.

I'm interested in the front bumper......first because i've never had a vehicle with a front license plate and this jeep I bought the bastards already pre drilled one in.....

Soo...I'm pretty handy and can easily take off the front bumper. What was needed to make the factory LED lights and fogs work that are on the SRT8 front bumper? Is it just an easy swap?

Thanks. I've found a source for decent repo 20x9 or 20x10 SRT8 rims. In your pictures are those the factory tires you are running? If so are those the 20x9 rims?

Thanks!

I really like this conversion....very well done and thought out. The running boards aren't bad but its not my style...it goes with your overland / SRT hybrid approach though. The SRT badge looks really cool....I wouldn't worry about the "poser" thing since the content says all. Honestly the SRT badge on the SRT8 is one of my favorite accents (lol)....crazy but true.

This conversion looks amazing.....I'm really considering making the change myself! I have 22" SRT reps lowered on eibachs and I think it would look nice.

Anyway thanks for the write up !

Re: My 2012 Overland SRT Hybrid

Thanks for the comments guys!

@FFBOS the body kit is available from Chad at Blackops, none of those parts came from the factory because they would not fit on my overland, but everything is factory quality. Installation will be much easier on a Laredo then it was on my overland, so i'm not sure which model you have. The tires are factory tires though with 20x8.5 rep wheels.

@etennyson this kit would look awesome on your current setup. Now I wish I had a white one so I could of done an Alpine conversion.

Here's another pic just for fun

Re: My 2012 Overland SRT Hybrid

I have an overland, what made the install difficult?

Are the wiring connections for the fogs and led strips plug and play?

I have no problem removing the trim and bumper, I've done it before.

Re: My 2012 Overland SRT Hybrid

If you have the trailer hitch you will need to get a rear reinforcement bar without the hitch welded to it, or you will need to cut the back bumper to fit the hitch. A small part had to be modded on the front bar as well. I also had to get new housings for the rear backup sensors and I think an extra wiring harness was needed. I had a body shop do most the work sanding and paint so its hard for me to give specific details about the install. I would talk to Chad at Blackops if you want more info he might of updated the kit since I placed my order last year.

Re: My 2012 Overland SRT Hybrid

How do you guys feel about the Summit grille on my setup, i've been thinking about changing it to the altitude grille and painting the rear brow body color but leaving the jeep logo chrome, any thoughts about the grille swap?
