My 2014 Summit

New around these parts. My second GC (first was a 1998 GC Laredo 4L) and replacing a 2008 BMW 535xi.

Auburn with brown guts and a 5.7L.

Re: My 2014 Summit

Damn that's an amazing color combo. Ugh, don't make me regret my white/brown Summit purchase haha
The more I look at pictures comparing the "platinum" Summit vs regular Summit, I think the non-Platinum just looks better and I can't even really pinpoint why exactly. Try all look great, but that thing just looks awesome!

Re: My 2014 Summit

Thanks guys.

Don't kick yourself over the white/brown combo...it was the first one I found but couldn't bring myself to drive 7 hours one way for it when the local dealer has done me right in the past.

I am finding myself liking this thing more and more each time I drive it.
I want to upgrade interior lights to LEDs, already got a K&N air filter and am going to swap out the stock headlight bulbs for 6000k bulbs.
I have a set of skid plates on order and am debating cutting openings for the hooks. Saw an Overland today with a set of chrome hooks and it looked good.

As for the fogs, I either want to find some bright LED amber bulbs or figure out a way to do some Rigid floods in there somehow.
The dealer I got it at, my buddy is the parts manager and they have done some cool stuff so they may be up to the task.
We shall see...

Thanks again for the welcome.

No I'm not, I love white on brown it's the exact combo I wanted. I was just saying though auburn looks excellent!
As for the headlights, if you are gonna change them out atleast make sure you go with a quality bulb. The absolute best bulb available right now that's near 6000k is th Osram CBI. If you go with some cheap eBay bulb that's just wrong. For the most part, any bulb is a downgrade from oem. The factory 4300k's really are the best as far as useable and most lumens.

Re: My 2014 Summit

Am I missing something? Why would you want to swap out the stock headlights? That's like a waste of money mod. Just to give your GC Summit the look of a ricer at night... Am I wrong?

My 2014 Summit

Nice setup! I have a granite crystal/ brown ecodiesel. I put in 3k hid's in the fogs.

I'd also question why go 6k on the headlamps? That's less light output.?.

You are missing something. Ricer? Not at all. With the LED daytime running lamps, the 4300k bulbs are a much different light color than the LEDs. The 6000k tends to be a closer match and blends better overall.



6000k is also a closer color to daylight than 4300k is. I don't like yellow bulbs in headlights and make no mistake, 4300k has a distinct yellow tint to it.
The light output or lumens is also not that far different. 3400 lumens for a 6000k vs 3700 lumens for a 4300k for comparable 35w bulbs. 300 lumens. Marginal in the grand scheme of things really. A difference of ~15 ft or so in real world illumination.

For fogs, 3000k is a much better choice because your goal isn't total lumens but to get as broad of a spread as possible and 3000k spreads better in foggy conditions.

Besides, not to go all Cartman or anything but it's my Jeep, I do what I want! Seriously though, what does it matter what *I* do with my vehicle? I did the same on the Bimmer and the combination matched the LED halos almost identically and garnered plenty of compliments.

Re: My 2014 Summit

I didn't mean to offend you... You can do whatever you want. Put purple bulbs in if you want. I was just curious. I had no idea that 6k wasn't as blue as I was thinking... The chart you provided definitely helped.
